About this Event

Though the cuisine changes from state to state, no matter where you go in India, due to thousands of years of influence from Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, no other part of the world has seen so many people eating veggie-friendly diets for so long.

Whether you’re currently following the diet your Indian grandmother advised you to follow or not, join us on March 2, 2024 (doors open at 5:45) as we enjoy delicious vegan Indian food and listen to experts explain why India's cultural and religious emphasis on a plant-based diet has been the best choice for humans after all.

Our delicious all-vegan Indian food buffet:

Sweet Chili Cauliflower

Dal Tadka
Vegan Chicken Coconut Curry
Spinach Tofu

Gajar Halwa (carrot pudding)
Peanut Butter Chocolate Ice cream on a waffle cone

Please bring your own plate and cutlery, to make this event as close to zero waste as possible. If you forget, paper plates and cutlery will be available at a $5 charge (cash only).

  • Dr. Matthew Nagra, ND, a naturopathic doctor with expertise in plant-based nutrition and an evidence-based approach
