Whether or not you eat meat, you still need to eat your vegetables.
Thankfully, Tucson’s vegetable game is on point. There are too many veggie dishes to feature all at once, so we’ll introduce a few at a time.
Here are five vegan dishes to try this week.
One of the newest items on BOCA’s menu, the Cauliflower Taco features grilled cauliflower tossed in curry cilantro and orange oil. With the daily changing salsas, you can experience the taco differently every visit.

If you live in Tucson & have an appreciation for A) ramen, B) vegetarian/vegan food, C) flavor or D) all of the above — you're not gonna want to sleep on this one. Veggie White Ramen is made with a mushroom soy milk broth, yu choy, wakame seaweed, enoki mushroom, bamboo shoots, tofrito (tofu sautéed with chili + garlic), & red garlic oil. Try it before our new menu launches for $13 while supplies last. #veggieramen #obontucson
While we eagerly wait for OBON’s new menu to launch, they’re teasing us with one new item: the Veggie White Ramen. While the soy milk provides a creamy flavor, you’ll definitely feel lighter after eating it than you would from eating a bowl of tonkotsu.

A fresh batch of our vegan tamales have just hit the reach-in with a batch of green corn tamales due to be ready around 5pm today. ??
These vegan tamales utilize hibiscus leaves for a fibrous meat texture, similar to how jackfruit is utilized.

Urban Fresh’s entire menu is vegan and you can’t go wrong regardless of what you choose. Specials change daily, so it’s easy to be a regular too.
For a menu standard, try the Green Chile Burger with a half-pound patty made of tofu, mushrooms, flax, and Panko baked and topped with Merchant’s Garden lettuce, onion, tomato, avocado, and roasted green chile on a sesame seed bun.

Welcome Diner’s Three Sisters Burrito features a vegan blend of tempura squash, corn, Tepary beans, smoked pecan cheese, ranchero, and pico de gallo.
The combination of squash and beans happens to grow well next to each other — they also provide all eight essential amino acids, making it something you could get away with eating exclusively for a while.
