Respond to Review of Veggie Love Food Truck
Review: Veggie Love is a welcome addition to Asheville's plant-based foods scene. Using mostly local and organic ingredients, Alison is less of a chef and more of an artist in creating her raw, vegan masterpieces. I especially love the Peace Patty, a raw nut burger that mimicks the taste and texture of a black bean patty, on soft and chewy raw onion bread, with ketchup, "mayo," tomato, cucumber, and sprouts. Her raw zucchini pasta with vegan cashew pesto cream and local bell peppers is sweet, savory, and mildly spicy (thanks to the raw garlic), and would have even a carnivore growling for seconds. I tried the raw pizza and anticipate its return to the ever-changing menu. Alison is also a masterful "baker," boasting a divine raw carrot cake, and gluten-free, vegan zucchini-chocolate chip muffins. Easy to smile and eager to serve, it is evident that Alison is in this for the pure love of food. Thanks to Asheville's recent acceptance of Food Cart Entrepeneurs, Veggie Love is able to share the love. Always on the move, you can catch her in the River Arts District and at the French Broad Food Coop, with future locations to be announced. So track the truck down, grab a folding chair and a friend, and prepare your palate for the best raw food in town!
