As Homestead's oasis of rainbow-hued produce and pastoral charm, Paradise Farms more than lives up to its moniker. For more than a decade, the certified-organic outpost has been growing and selling a bounty of fruits and vegetables, from microgreens to oyster mushrooms.

So who better to host a plant-based edition of Dinner in Paradise? This Sunday, March 1, notable local chefs will whip up vegan eats at the Homestead oasis.

Beyond Meat's Beast Burger. No cows were harmed in the making of this burger.

Where the South Beach Wine & Food Festival is concerned, plant-based options have been slow to make inroads. Most events are still heavy on the meat (Meatopia, anyone?), light on the herbivorous fare.

Little by little, however, plant-based edibles are making their way into the foodie fantasyland, and nowhere is this more clear than at Burger Bash this Friday, where for the first time ever, a plant-based burger is on the menu. Beyond Meat's Beast Burger, to be exact.

Bowls are another all-star, and Della Bowls is planning to make their presence known here in Miami with a plant-based, fast casual concept, slated to open this summer.

A big, fat steak, an overly decadent dessert, and too many glasses of wine does not for romance make. When stomachs are full and food comas set in, things are likely to fizzle back in the bedroom

It makes much more sense to enjoy a lighter, aphrodisiac-inspired meal on the most romantic day of the year. Veganaroma is serving up a four-course holiday menu designed to keep couples feeling sexy, instead of stuffed.

Vegan donuts, you guys.
The Whole Foods Market in downtown Miami is a gleaming mecca of healthy eats and well-heeled patrons. From the shiny new floors to the pristine sneeze guards, the store is in the bloom of its youth, and everyone who's anyone is flocking for their daily fix.

For vegans and plant-strong patrons, there is a wealth of options in the prepared foods section. Heck, if you live close by, you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner there. (Of course, then it really would be Whole Paycheck.)

Jugofresh is all about going where no other cold-pressed juicer has gone before. Owner Matthew Sherman tends to embrace innovation and evolution, and the company's latest venture into uncharted territory is no exception: They've put a Jugofresh in a Whole Foods.

It's a notable feat for a local brand to partner with the healthy grocer in such a big way, and the 2-week-old spot, part of the downtown Miami Whole Foods, is already attracting attention.

In addition to the regular Jugofresh menu, the branch offers some exclusive smoothies, a wheatgrass shot, and a totally new concept: the mash-up bar.

Vegan Empanadas at Lincoln Road, Coconut Grove Farmer's Markets

Photos by Hannah Sentenac
The widespread availability of empanadas is one of many reasons to love Miami. You can find them at gas stations, farmer's markets, fast casual chains -- everywhere and anywhere. Sadly, most empanadas aren't vegan-friendly, thanks to the addition of egg and butter in the dough.

Luckily, plant-based empanada lovers have a new spot to stock up on this savory pastry. Chef Empanadas (AKA CE Catering Delights) is selling scrumptious vegan empanadas at the Lincoln Road Farmer's Market every Sunday, and at the Coconut Grove Organic Market every Saturday.
