Field Roast's Coconut Cutlet tops a mango salad.

If you're clueless in the kitchen, plant-based eating can seem especially intimidating. How do you cook eggplant exactly? What in hell are you supposed to do with shallots? How much is too much oil?

Luckily, there's help. Choices Kitchen and Field Roast Grain Meats have teamed up to offer a free cooking class to curious eaters. Attendees will learn how to make a quick and easy vegan wrap -- an entrée that's sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

Lemoni Pizza & Kitchen: Try the Vegan Hawaiian

Hearing that a spot serves vegan pizza is maybe the best thing ever for an herbivore. Because, let's be real, it's impossible not to miss that chewy dough, that piquant sauce, that melty, gooey, drippy mozzarella. Sigh.

So when I heard Lemoni Pizza & Kitchen serves vegan pies, I was on it like Miami's intelligentsia on Pamela Druckerman. And it has earned every ounce of my unbridled enthusiasm.

The Ménage à Trois Raw Vegan Doughnuts from Jugofresh Will Leave You Stuffed

The threesome.
There's a certain person (El Jefe) who likes to visit local doughnut shops whenever he travels to different cities. Unfortunately, in Miami you have to leave the city and head to Mojo in Pembroke Pines for that special round sweetness with a hole in the middle.

It's unclear why this Magic City is lacking a special doughnut, but surely this healthful population is partially responsible. Perhaps that is why the juice masters at Jugofresh brought us raw, vegan donuts in a three-pack to satisfy our pie doughnut holes.

Heirloom tomatoes, avocado mousse, cotija cheese, HFF pea tendrils, and lemon at the Federal.
Miami Spice is officially upon us. For foodies across Miami, the concept of three-course meals at the city's finest eateries (at prices mere mortals can afford) is worth waiting ten months for.

For the meatless among us, however, it can feel a little lonely. But the landscape is getting better for herbivores all the time, and this year's Miami Spice selections are no exception. There are plenty of places to get veg-friendly options, from Seasons 52 to Macchialina and more.

Lan Pan Asian Cafe: Banana-Coconut Bubble Tea Is the Best Thing Ever

Vegan-friendly and just as creamy as its dairy-infused counterparts.
It's thanks to Lan Pan Asian Cafe that I discovered the joys of boba tea about a year ago (I was totally behind the eight ball, I know). I was utterly enamored with their taro variety -- a creamy, lavender-hued, frozen dream.

When I made the transition to veganism back in January, I was bummed to learn I had to forego this indulgence. Luckily, I've discovered that the Asian eatery offers fruity versions of their bubble tea that are just as magically delicious and dairy-free. The banana-coconut, in particular ($4), is amazing.

Five Reasons to Join a CSA for Fall

Everyone knows they should eat local. But when faced with a busy schedule and the convenience of the Publix produce aisle, it can be tough to commit to a locavore lifestyle.

But that's what CSAs are for. Community Supported Agriculture means someone else does your shopping for you and you're supporting local farmers. Now's the time to get on board with a fall share.

From hurtling down from trees, to being sold for big bucks on the auction block, to making their way into entrées all over town, mangoes are so hot right now. Miami is in the midst of its annual mango mania, and what's not to love about it?

For those who can't get enough of the fleshy goodness of this tropical fruit, Keith Kalmanowicz of Love & Vegetables will host a mango cooking class (and tasting) this Saturday. For $75, you can take your mango mastery skills up a notch or two. (And if you're broke, they're also giving away a seat to one lucky Miamian.)
