I Now Understand the Garbage Plate
This is a Vegan Trash Plate from Two Paisans. It's based on the Garbage Plate, a creation of restaurant Nick Tahou's. This has french fries, macaroni salad (made with Vegenaise), and crumbled veggie burger, all topped with hot sauce, ketchup, onions, and mustard. I used to roll my eyes at this creation and the following that it has in Rochester, but now I understand -- it is quite yummy! This version is a bit healthier, though it would be a stretch to call it "heart healthy".
And, for the nice people who helped me load my moving truck (Dad, Mom, Rick, Karlyn, Mark, Mike, Rosie, and Ben -- you guys rock; and Kevin who extended his work trip to help me, I couldn't imagine carrying a couch up three flights of stairs with anyone else), I ordered pizza, also from Two Paisans. This is topped with spinach, broccoli, roasted red peppers, and vegan cheese.
For those of you in Rochester, please patronize the vegan menu at Two Paisans. It's nice to have so many vegan options at a place like this.
