Out of Vegetarian Food Ideas? Try Something New at Pita Jungle!

Sometimes when people convert from a meat eating diet, they have the notion that all vegetarian food ideas have to taste or remind them of the meat they’re no longer eating. So many non-meat foods are marketed with catch phrases such as, ‘looks like meat’, ‘tastes like meat’, or ‘has the texture of meat’. The truth is that so many vegetarian foods are worthy of being called, ‘delicious’, standing on their own, without being glorified as meat substitutes. A whole new world of vegetarian food ideas opens up, especially when you begin to explore food from other cultures.

When you run out of your typical vegetarian food ideas, a.k.a. ‘tofu masquerading as chicken’, turn to the realm of the beautiful, bountiful Mediterranean. Many Mediterranean dishes are already vegetarian and ultra-healthy to boot, using fresh greens and vegetables, earthy grains, beans, peas and other legumes, as their staples. Mediterranean food; the basis for our menu at Pita Jungle, is prepared very simply, getting its rich flavors from very basic ingredients. Pita Jungle doesn’t rely on unhealthy fats; oils and creams for taste. It’s the savvy seasoning techniques, in Mediterranean cuisine, that can take a casual lunch or dinner to new, flavorful heights, using combinations of spices, herbs, vinegars and citrus zests.

Try some of Pita Jungle’s favorite vegetarian food ideas! You can’t go wrong with a trio of dips to get your meal started, so order up some Roasted Bell Pepper Hummus, Tzatziki, and Baba Ganoosh to sink your pita bread into. For the main course, our Black Bean Burger, Grilled Portobello Mushroom, and Falafel Pita are always vegetarian food ideas with a high score on satisfaction.
