Green Earth in Pasadena

Pasadena is growing in their offerings for vegans.  Green Earth is an all vegan restaurant in the quaint Old Town district of Pasadena.  My vegan guy and I went and got a plethora of options.

Our first appetizer was the nachos ($5.25) – organic white corn chips and cheese served with guacamole, pico de gallo, and jalapeños.  As you can see from the picture, it is kind of plain.  We got the pico de gallo on the side, but even so, the guacamole was more like pureed avocado.  It was decent, but not the best.

Hot and Sour Soup ($4.95)  was next – spicy soup with bamboo shoots, tofu, soy protein, king oyster mushroom, and shredded carrot.  I didn’t really like this one either. I thought it was not very flavorful, but high on the spicy factor. This soup was small, but enough to serve two.

My vegan guy got the Wonder Sub ($8.95) – veggie “meatball” sandwich topped with marinara sauce and vegan mozzarella cheese.  He really liked this.  I had a bite and liked it as well, but I also think I have had better meatball subs.

For my entree, I got the California Chick-un Wrap ($8.95) – sautéed chick’un, lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, avocado, pico de gallo, and house made tofu mayo.  I love wraps and this one was no different.  It is very light – not greasy at all. There was a perfect amount of chicken versus avocado versus tortilla.

As if you thought we couldn’t eat anymore, we got dessert.  Green tea is always appealing to me, so I got the Green Tea Cheesecake ($5.25).  It was slightly cold and wonderfully creamy.  A very nice lightly sweet dessert to end the night.
