A Very Veggie Thanksgiving From My Veggie Chef

Are you a vegetarian? Vegan? An omnivore who enjoys good vegan food as part of your diet? Are you so busy that you rarely have time to cook yourself a healthy meal?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you owe it to yourself to check out My Veggie Chef — a healthy, delicious, all-vegan food service that provides both takeout and delivery service. Proprietor Kristi Agee has been tweaking her business model since cranking up the ovens several months ago: Currently, one option offers three fresh, chef-selected entrées, three side dishes, one soup, one salad and a complimentary treat of the week, all for $80 plus tax, and FREE delivery within a 20-mile radius of Nashville. Those dishes feed two to three people each. Conservatively, you can expect to get at least three complete meals for two people, featuring mostly seasonal local produce. It's a pretty great deal.

There's also an option to order à la carte from a variety of frozen dishes. You can have your à la carte selections delivered to your home for a minimum $80 order. And there's no minimum if you want to pick up your order between 4 and 8 p.m. Sundays at their commercial kitchen facility at The Cook's Kitchen, 521 Fifth Ave. S. I've tried and enjoyed several dishes, and will be back for more.

And for those of you who would rather spend your Thanksgiving dinner talking turkey than eating turkey (OK, I stole that line from their website), Chef Kristi and her able assistant Chef Lacey are offering a delivered Thanksgiving meal! The entrée is baked seitan (or for a gluten-free option, baked tofu) and dressing, and there are four enticing sides (candied sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, garlic smashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, and roasted brussels sprouts with carrots and raisins), individual cranberry-apple pies (courtesy of Vegan Vee) and a special treat — banana oat bars. The dinner is $60 for two, $120 for four, and $180 for six. But orders must be placed by 6 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday) night, Nov. 16. The meal will be delivered Tuesday, Nov. 22.
