Ayurvedic cuisine supposedly works with your body’s natural energies and constitution to create “soul” food that’s on a whole new plane. Winners of Best Vegetarian in our restaurant poll several years running, Annapurna’s food is satisfying but never heavy and, well, you just feel better after you eat there. Try Sunday brunch with spiced gluten-free, vegan pancakes and breakfast quinoa (but you’ll have to live without scrambled eggs, sorry). The shaded courtyard to the side of the restaurant is spectacular. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Body Café is the dining side of Body of Santa Fe, a gym and spa with all the trimmings. The ingredients are wheat-, dairy- and sugar-free. And 90 percent of the ingredients are organic. The extensive vegetarian menu also caters to omnivores with dishes such as a tower of brown rice with seasonal vegetables in a rich lemongrass curry with your choice of marinated tempeh, chicken or Alaskan wild salmon. Liquids take up half the menu with herbal elixirs, straight-up juices, and smoothies made with coconut milk and fruit. Kick back with organic wine, beer and saké. (Alibi Staff, December 6, 2012)

Café Lush is like a daydream of the way things might be in some future hybrid of Europe and Albuquerque. It’s an urban café on a quiet street corner with a small menu of simple, yet well-crafted dishes and a pledge to use local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible. But unlike in Europe, the red and green chile won’t disappoint. (Alibi Staff, November 17, 2011)

Looking for something light and fresh? Try Conchita’s Cafe where there is a weekly five dollar salad special and a six dollar daily special like the meatball sub. Other dishes include strawberry salad, quinoa wrap and taco plate. Sandwiches are also available. (Alibi Staff, July 18, 2013)

Ortega’s bills itself as serving “healthy New Mexican” cuisine. A contradiction in terms, you say? Well, kind of. You’ll still get the goopy eggs, greasy cheese and meaty red chile, but with a few surprising differences. Notably, it serves whole beans instead of refried, uses no lard and makes whole-wheat sopaipillas. That’s right—whole-wheat sopaipillas. Which are deep-fried. But, hey, at least they have more fiber. Plus, Hector Pimentel’s famous “romantic” guitar show has been scientifically proven to aide in digestion. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Late-night UNM goers, you now have another option for the midnight munchies. The Pita Pit, an Ontario-based chain, has a mix-and-match pita sandwich menu and a modest but colorful dining room. To top it off, it’s open until 3am. Greek, American and Middle Eastern options abound in meaty pocket sammies—wipe the drool off your textbook and refuel! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This bright, fresh restaurant truly serves organic food. They use real, whole foods like grass-fed dairy, cage-free eggs, grass-fed beef, organic chicken and organic produce. The meals are fast, convenient and delicious and are all naturally gluten-free. Now that’s rad. (Alibi Staff, October 8, 2015)

Ever had vegetarian posole? The menu at Richard’s features traditional plates like green chile chicken enchiladas and tostadas compuestas, but also offers healthier, low-fat and vegetarian fare. And, believe it or not, the light plates are scrumptious. Be sure to order some fideo (tasty marinated noodles) on the side. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sure, it looks like an old Dairy Queen on the outside—but inside, it’s totally Thailand (just check out the caddy of housemade condiments). The menu’s large selection of salads is a strong suit, including crispy, delicate green papaya and a not-to-be-missed tempura trout salad (sop up the tamarind dressing with a side of sticky rice). The tom yum soup is perhaps the best in town, and you can choose between chicken and veggie broth in some of the other good soups here. Most dishes—like pad cha vegetable stir-fry and creamy, fragrant red curry—can be ordered vegetarian too. There’s also a small sushi menu that offers big, adequate rolls.

This healthy eatery offers organic plant-based cuisine that’s (mostly) locally sourced. The fresh food fills you up with delicious energy so you can scoot your boot to some live music performed by local musicians when you’re done. We like the fresh komubcha, and never pass on the vegan cheesecake. (Alibi Staff, May 12, 2017)

Vinaigrette

1828 Central Ave SW (Old Town)

A restaurant that focuses mostly on salads may be a hard sell for meat-happy Burqueños, but make no mistake: Vinaigrette does salad right. From gourmet options that feature duck and arugula to more delicate fare with pomegranate seeds and shoestring yams, Vinaigrette presents a world of salads you may not have known existed. And much of their menu is locally grown at their fields in Nambé, too. (Alibi Staff, April 25, 2013)
