Maybe you're on the Meatless Monday train, or perhaps you haven't had pork since the '90s. Maybe you're just feeling a bit too overindulged lately and could use a few extra vegetables in your diet. Either way, plant-based vegetarian and vegan restaurants are proliferating across North Texas, so it's easier than ever to fill up on food that won't kill you. Here are a few of our favorite spots.
