15 of Miami's Best Vegetarian/Vegan Dishes

View as Map

Today we're going to get over the conception that meatless meals are composed of tofu stuffed with tofu served atop of tofu. Take a deep breath and forget about the hippie vegetarian stereotype. Good. Now let this map be your teacher to Miami's best vegan/vegetarian dishes. From a raw cheeseburger (yes, you read that correctly) to hearty Indian food, Miami's meat free meals are satisfying for everyone, not just veggie heads.
