Today I joined my good friend Debbie for a late lunch at what’s got to be one of the best vegan joints in the whole wide world. The place is called “Stuff I Eat” and it’s in Englewood. The owner Babette is as delightful as the food here. We had the Soul Food Platter (yams with coconut, potato salad, coleslaw, vegan mac and cheese, and barbecue tofu), the Croquette Plate (carrot croquette with polenta cakes, carrot gravy, spinach, and salad with avocado) served with buckwheat and corn muffin, black-eyed peas, kale greens, and pozole soup. I’ll be fasting tomorrow.
