(celery, parsley, ginger, broccoli stems, handful of spring mix salad greens, and sweet potato)

May you always have…
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Eating Out New Orleans: Sukho Thai

Over the course of the past 2 years, Sukho Thai in New Orleans on Magazine St. (there is also another location downtown) has become one of our go-to spots for our family celebrations from birthdays to graduations to just simply eating out together. Since most of us share a plant-based vegan diet now, we’ve found that ethnic restaurants are the best bet when it comes to offering a variety of delicious veggie dishes that will please us all (including the omnivores among us)¬†and Sukho Thai is no exception. Until recently, they had an entirely “Vegetarian” menu section-with the option to veganize any of the dishes. Easy enough! Well, they have re-vamped their menu and have decided to create an entirely “Vegan” menu section instead of just “Vegetarian”! I imagine the popularity of vegan requests has brought this great change on. Their food is consistently delicious and flavorful! One issue we noticed, however, was that in the “vegan” pad thai, my husband found egg. I am assuming that it must be because it’s newer to them to omit the egg and they aren’t as used to having to do that-so just be sure to specify/double check if you order that. Everything else was vegan as it should be. If you are in the New Orleans area looking for some tasty Thai food – be sure check them out! Here is the menu plus the dishes that we most recently got.
