This 100% vegan concept encourages you to “eat with a purpose,” which doesn’t seem too hard when it means stuffing your face with tempura-battered Orange Cauliflower, faux chorizo quesadillas, refreshing green salads tossed in a sweet miso dressing, and Beyond Meat burgers slathered with special sauce and cheddar. Talk about balling out, plant-style.

Houston native Stephanie Hoban’s story revolves around her passion for nutrition and cooking. Graduating Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. from New York University, she worked as a full time registered dietitian, but blogged in her spare time. When she began selling her food at the Urban Harvest Farmer’s, the response was so positive that she quit her job and opened a food truck, which in turn was so successful that she opened her first brick and mortar, Verdine, in 2019, serving a 100% vegan and gluten-free friendly menu. Hoban’s menu is globally inspired, with hits like the orange cauliflower, jackfruit carnitas, and a rotating selection of gluten free cauliflower crust pizzas, but really everything is good. Don’t miss the gluten-free, vegan daily slice of cake. The jumbo white chocolate macadamia and walnut chocolate chip cookies are also incredible.
