The Ultimate List of Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurants to Eat in Boise

The dietary lifestyle of vegetarians and vegans is not new to the human race. First mention of a no-meat diet has been found in the works of philosopher Pythagoras in 500 BCE, and much of what we know presently is from observers of Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism. Their ideals place the well-being of animals highly and promote humans to not harm them. What has been deemed “veganism” in our modern lexicon has been a practice for hundreds of years by these religions and peoples in South Asia and other surrounding areas. To be a vegetarian means to not consume the meat of any animal, with the exception being fish for pescatarians. And to be a vegan, the consumption or use of animal bi-products is strictly prohibited. This means dairy products, wool, figs, honey and other foods, items, etc. are on the no-no list.

These principles have turned into a growing international movement, and the Treasure Valley has joined in! My boyfriend and I decided to go vegetarian last year after we did much research on how big of an environmental impact the commercial meat industry has. It started with us replacing the “meat” portion in our dinner meal planning, with a plant-based alternative. A year later, we’ve learned how to cook vegetarian dupes like sweet and sour cauliflower or pulled mushroom BBQ sandwiches. But sometimes, we want to join our friends for a patio in Downtown Boise, and thankfully restaurants, cafes, and food trucks are making it easier for all of us to gather and have our dietary needs met.

Check out the ULTIMATE list of vegetarian and vegan-friendly vendors serving up their plant-based dishes for all to enjoy.
