Fat Tuesday. Could there be a more full-on Wicked holiday? It’s the last day to indulge before the fasting of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday. Sweet pancakes are traditional on Mardi Gras, along with all kinds of rich, fried pastries from doughnuts to beignets.


Mardi Gras is actually the culmination of the months-long Carnival season, a global celebration full of public parades, parties, costumes, masks, revelry, and feasting. The American party reaches its peak in New Orleans, Louisiana, with Cajun and Creole foods like jambalaya, gumbo, po’ boys, red beans and rice, pralines, and Sazerac cocktails. No reason you can’t make all of these plant-based! Here are some of our favorite plant-based Mardi Gras recipes. As they say in the Big Easy, laissez les bons temps rouler, or Let the good times roll!
