As the interest in vegetarian and, more specifically, vegan dining options steadily increases, UC Santa Cruz Dining is proud to address that need. Students have the opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint by going healthy (Healthy Mondays offer vegetarian and vegan options) or farm-fresh one day a week.
Knowing that some vegans enjoy meat alternatives in their dining choices, we offer a variety of tofu, Seitan and tempeh dishes, and feature a locally made product called Mayzan which is a delicious soy-and-mushroom based protein.
Finally, we encourage our chefs to come up with fun specials like Vegan Mexican Tofu “Benedicts”, vegan pizzas, and specialty grain dishes.
