Eating Vegan at Cucina Rustica – Our Vegan Menu
Eating vegan at Cucina Rustica just got easier with our Vegetarian & Vegan Menu! Whether you’re a full-time vegan, trying a vegan diet to lose some festive pounds, or taking part in Veganuary, there’s plenty of delicious, plant based Italian dishes for you to enjoy here!
So, hop on board and we’ll take you through some of our delicious meat-free options.
STARTERS AND SALADS
If you’re going uber-healthy this January/Veganuary, opt for our Insalata Tri-Colore. It’s usually made with avocado, beef tomato, buffalo mozzarella, mixed leaves, rocket and basil dressing, but can be made vegan by substituting the buffalo mozzarella for another vegetable – we’d opt for asparagus!
If a warming winter soup is more your thing for this time of year, our traditional Italian Minestroni Soup is just the thing! Packed with nourishing vegetables and warmth, it’s the perfect comfort food dish to start your meal at Cucina Rustica.
Other meat and dairy free starters you can enjoy are our Funghi Con Formaggio Di Capra (can be made vegan by removing the goats cheese and garlic butter – try swapping it out for garlic infused olive oil) and our Melanzane Alla Parmigiana (just ask for no mozzarella and no pecorino).
Federicho Fellini once said, ‘Life is a combination of magic and pasta’ – we couldn’t agree more and so we can’t deny our plant-based friends the magic of pasta here at Cucina Rustica!
Ask to replace the pecorino cheese in our Rigatoni Al Forno with a little kick of chilli oil (or garlic oil if you prefer) and this is a winning vegan pasta dish!
If you want to add other vegetables to this dish or make up your own tomato-based pasta dish, please don’t hesitate to ask. Our dishes are made fresh by our talented chefs so it’s no biggie!
Pizza – another of life’s great pleasures! Our vegetarian pizzas (Margherita and Romana) can be made vegan by removing cheese.
If you spot a meat pizza you like the look of, just ask for it without the meat and cheese, or create your own with a medley of fresh vegetables from our kitchen, finished with a drizzle of olive oil!
Finish with a zingy, palette cleansing Lemon Sorbet from our Sorbetti!
JUST FOR YOU
If there’s anything you see on our menu that could be veganised, or you have something particular in mind, feel free and comfortable to let us know when ordering (or in advance). We’d be happy to make something tailored just for you, with the fresh ingredients we have in our kitchen – like this delectable dish of grilled vegetables marinated with olive oil, garlic, fresh mint and a hint of chilli!
