Vegan in Alaska

When pondering which U.S. states you would think are the least vegan-friendly, Alaska has to be up there.  It is, after all, the land of caribou burgers, the Iditarod, fur trading, and of course, the Palins.

And yet, much to my surprise, “The Last Frontier” is ahead of the curve when it comes to cruelty-free dining options, as shown by this sampling of meals I devoured during my visit last week.  Indeed, with just a little bit of digging, a vegan food goldmine awaits you in the “Land of the Midnight Sun,” including:

  • Tempeh burgers with vegan Thousand Island dressing, mushroom leek soup, and vegan chocolate ganache cake from Organic Oasis in Anchorage
  • Deep-fried vegan burritos and tortilla soup from Mexico in Alaska in Anchorage
  • Veggieburgers over an open flame (grill, baby, grill!) in Denali National Park
  • Massaman curry with tofu from a food truck just outside of Denali National Park
  • Tomato-lentil soup, oatmeal bread, chocolate peanut butter Krispie bars, and soy chai tea at The Flying Squirrel Café in (tiny) Talkeetna, Alaska

Take my word for it, if eating vegan is not only possible but delicious in Alaska (or Egypt, or Japan, or …), it’s possible anywhere—no excuses. :)

    You should do a similar search in ALBANY GEORGIA!! haha. I have to fight people to get something without cheese here. It’s a battle of wits everywhere I go. Men especially say “IF I COOKED A STEAK AND PUT IT IN FRONT OF YOU, YOU’D HAVE TO EAT IT! YOU CAIN’T (yes, “cain’t”…they say “cain’t”) NOT EAT MEAT, YOU’LL DIE!!” Alaska actually sounds eons more civilized than South Georgia.
