Meat lovers never seem to have a hard time finding delicious entrée options, but what about those who are strictly vegetarian?  While some places may seem devoid of tasty vegetarian options, Greater Raleigh is sprinkled with plenty of restaurants that have set aside a part of their menu for those who don’t eat meat.

Azitra Indian Restaurant in Brier Creek serves up delicious authentic Indian fare with an authentic flair.  The restaurant uses only fresh, natural ingredients in its vegetarian entrees, some of which are also vegan.  Dine on flavorful minced vegetable dumplings simmered in Makhni sauce, chickpeas and diced potatoes cooked in Punjabi style, or creamed style spinach with homemade Indian cheese, to name a few.

Irregardless Café of downtown Raleigh changes its menu daily, but it always has a full page of vegetarian and vegan options on its dinner menu.  Enjoy meat-free versions of Shepherd’s Pie, Lasagna and Grilled BBQ (made with Tofu). 

Serving organic, local ingredients, Café Harmony offers an ample selection of vegetarian dishes every day.  Enjoy dishes such as a delicious tofu scramble for breakfast, a fresh edamame artichoke hummus wrap for lunch, and a tasty Portobello burger for dinner, all in the same café.

Just a small sampling of the many restaurants with vegetarian options, these places are definitely worth checking out.  For more vegetarian options in the Raleigh area, search the restaurant finder.
