Vegan Empanadas at Lincoln Road, Coconut Grove Farmer's Markets

The widespread availability of empanadas is one of many reasons to love Miami. You can find them at gas stations, farmer's markets, fast casual chains -- everywhere and anywhere. Sadly, most empanadas aren't vegan-friendly, thanks to the addition of egg and butter in the dough.

Luckily, plant-based empanada lovers have a new spot to stock up on this savory pastry. Chef Empanadas (AKA CE Catering Delights) is selling scrumptious vegan empanadas at the Lincoln Road Farmer's Market every Sunday, and at the Coconut Grove Organic Market every Saturday.

The pastries are stuffed with kale, spinach, quinoa, mushrooms, red peppers, and fresh herbs. They're moist, flavorful and satisfying -- everything you'd expect in an empanada. The team is also hoping to create a gluten-free variety, but that's still in the works.

Empanadas are $3 each, two for $5 or three for $7. You can order them in bulk as a catering service, or pick them up at the Coconut Grove or Lincoln Road markets on the weekends.

They also make a vegan paella (a rare find!), which they sell exclusively at the Grove market on Saturdays. That's worth a US 1 adventure, for sure.
