The Paseo neighborhood’s annual Fairy Ball or the monthly block party at Hudson and Eighth Street; the Downtown Medical Complex or the bustling corners of Uptown – no matter where they look, Oklahoma City’s vegans have an exciting new culinary option on the table. The Loaded Bowl has rolled into town, serving up “conscious comfort food” made from non-GMO, plant-based, local ingredients that are both conscientious and delicious. Choices change with the occasion and season, but the Loaded Bowl is known for such creations as the Garfield (lasagna loaded with organic tofu ricotta and local veggies) and the Barbecue Rice Bowl with brown rice and fresh peach and ginger barbecue sauce. Give the Lentil Loaf meatloaf alternative a chance, or try a fresh fruit salad made from local apples and watermelon. Vegan desserts also are on the menu, including cinnamon maple, chocolate chip, and cookies and cream cupcakes. Cards are accepted, and you can find out where this vegan palate pleaser is serving on its Facebook page.
