I'm coining a new phrase: vegetablearian.

I am just no longer satisfied when I go to a restaurant and am served a bowl of vegetables, or the chef's standard ... Hmmmm ... wait for it ... it's too original ... grilled vegetables.  I am not a vegetablearian.

I want creativity and thought in my restaurant meals.  I want you to either dazzle me with what you are doing with vegetables that hasn't been done before or I want you to imitate the tastes and flavors and textures of my childhood but this time include a healthy dose of compassion.  I want you to show me what you can do with Tempeh, Tofu, and Seitan.  I want you to take mundane foods and spin and combine them into tastes and textures I could not imagine.

Although it's better than nothing, I'm a little tired of merely being relieved that a restaurant puts a Gardenburger on a menu and calls it a day.

What do you think?
