Driving our annual January resolution of clean eating and reduced waistlines, many gourmands focus on turning vegan and dropping dairy, gluten and even refined sugars from their diets. To have a detox after all the over-indulging during the festive period seems a wise thing to do. Not all restaurants cater to vegans, but some in Mumbai are serving exciting vegan fare to entice our taste buds. There are options right from breakfast to main meals and even desserts. From Quinoa Breakfast Bowl and Mung Bean Salad to Thai Spring Rolls, Pumpkin Risotto, Pear And Fig Cake, the list is endless.
