Follow Your Heart – the makers of the classic and delicious Vegenaise and vegan soy cheeses – has a wonderful vegetarian market and cafe in Canoga Park. It’s so nice to be able to have a fantastic meal and then find some vegan grocery items all in one trip. The menu at Follow Your Heart is huge, but apparently both my vegan guy and I were craving tacos on our last trip.
I got the Braised Tofu Soft Tacos ($11.50): corn tortillas served with braised tofu, cheese, tomato, lettuce, and cilantro. It comes with black beans, spanish rice, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. You also have a choice of soup or salad with this meal. I got the soup (the picture didn’t turn out, sorry) which was tasty and came with a really delicious bread stick (reminiscent of Olive Garden’s amazing bread sticks). The tacos were huge! I couldn’t finish it all, but they were very tasty. The side of black beans and rice were kind of bland on their own, but nice together.
Not being a huge fan of tofu or soft tortillas, my vegan guy opted for the Organic Tempeh Tacos ($9.50): corn tortilla shells filled with seasoned and grilled tempeh, cheese, tomatoes, and fresh cilantro. It was also served with black beans, spanish rice, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. He enjoyed these tacos, except the shell wasn’t as crisp as he had hoped.
We were so full that we couldn’t even take a bite of any dessert. They do have a large selection of vegan desserts – many I have tried and have enjoyed.
