Grass VBQ Joint – Grass VBQ Joint Restaurant

Chef Terry Sargent started this vegan BBQ joint which specializes in “mock” meats which include cold smoking for over five hours! Some of their most popular items include the smoked lobstah roll, oyster mushroom po’boy, and a smoked chili cheeze dawg which is 10/10 delicious.

Loving Hut is primarily asian-inspired cuisine and you can order delicious vegan dishes such as wonton soup, curry stir-fry, and spicy vegan pizza to name just a few!

Slutty Vegan – Slutty Vegan Restaurant

Probably the most well known vegan restaurant in Atlanta, is Slutty Vegan. The restaurant was started in 2018 by Chef Pinky Cole who started the restaurant on Instagram! Three months into her adventure, she opened her brick and mortar location which frequently requires you to wait up to a few hours for a burger. The wait is definitely worth it, however, as it just gives you more time to pick which burger you’re going to pick. With options such as the One Night Stand, Fussy Hussy, and or Super Slut you literally cannot go wrong.

While this list is no way all encompassing, we hope it at least gives you a starting point when trying to pick a vegan restaurant in Atlanta!

Vegan Garlic Pasta With Roasted Tomatoes

PREP: 10 mins – COOK: 20 mins – TOTAL: 30 mins


  • 3 cups grape tomatoes (halved)
  • 10 ounces whole wheat pasta (such as penne, linguini, or fettuccine // use less if you want a higher sauce:pasta ratio // use gluten-free pasta for GF eaters)
  • Olive oil
  • 2 medium shallots (diced // 2 medium shallots yield ~1/4 cup or 40 g)
  • 8 large cloves garlic (minced/grated // 8 large cloves yield ~1/4 cup or 24 g)
  • 1 pinch each sea salt and black pepper
  • 3-4 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour (or another thickener of choice)*
  • 2 1/2 cups unsweetened plain Almond Breeze
  • 2-3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1-2 Tbsp vegan parmesan cheese (optional // plus more for serving)
  • 1-2 Tbsp lemon juice (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and toss tomatoes in a bit of olive oil and sea salt. Place cut side up on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes while you prepare the rest of the dish. Then set aside.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to package instructions. When done, drain, cover and set aside.
  3. In the meantime, prepare the sauce. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, add 1 Tbsp (15 ml // use more, as needed, if increasing batch size) olive oil and the garlic and shallot. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper and stir frequently, cooking for 3-4 minutes until softened and fragrant.
  4. Stir in flour (or other thickener of choice – see notes) and mix with a whisk. Once combined, slowly whisk in the almond milk a little at a time so clumps don’t form. Then add nutritional yeast, another healthy pinch of salt and black pepper, and bring to a simmer. Continue cooking for another 4-5 minutes to thicken.
  5. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more salt to taste, more minced/pressed garlic for zing, or more nutritional yeast for cheesy flavor. Optional: You can also add 1-2 Tbsp of vegan parmesan for extra flavor at this time. Some readers also enjoyed adding 1-2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice at this time for some brightness / acidity.)
  6. If you want an ultra creamy sauce, transfer sauce to a blender (or use an immersion blender) to blend the sauce until creamy and smooth. Place back in pan and reduce heat to a low simmer until desired thickness is reached.
  7. Once the sauce is to your desired thickness, taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Then add pasta and roasted tomatoes and stir.
  8. Serve immediately and garnish with extra black pepper, fresh basil, and/or vegan parmesan cheese. Best when fresh, but will keep for up to 2 days in fridge.
