Oklahoma City Vegan options are not plentiful – most of the time when we go out to eat, I am pretty sure I’m going to land a salad somewhere due to the lack of other vegan options in OKC.
That makes a select few restaurants my absolute favorite places to visit – one of them being Flower Child OKC.
Flower Child isn’t local to Oklahoma, they are a chain restaurant that you’ll find in ten other states and I have no idea how we landed one, but I am sure it’s landed in my gratitude journal on more than one occasion.
Flower Child Vegan Menu
Mother Earth is not a vegan-only restaurant but the options they do have are delicious. The menu changes from time to time, as all restaurant menus do, but there are 3 vegan bowl options and 1 vegan wrap option that doesn’t seem to ever change. Two of these four items I get regularly…I’m a creature of habit – so that’s what I’ll be sharing with you today and as I venture out of my comfort zone to the other 50% of the vegan entrees menu, I’ll update this post to share those as well.
Mother Earth Bowl
This was my first love at Flower Child OKC. I couldn’t believe I could walk up, order, and get a healthy vegan lunch a few minutes later in the cutest little earthy atmosphere – so this love fest was likely partly because I just felt so seen and partly because it was delicious.
Also – it was $9.95. EATING HEALTHY DOESN’T HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE!
The Mother Earth bowl has ancient grains, sweet potato, portobello mushroom, avocado, cucumber, broccoli pesto, charred onion, leafy greens, red pepper miso vinaigrette, and hemp seed.
I really do love it all but that sweet potato with the red pepper miso vinaigrette was so delicious that Doug set out to make it at home for us and got 95% of the way there. I love that he can make something so close for us – but there’s nothing better to me than being able to go sit somewhere and enjoy the atmosphere and eat something healthy.
I’ll be frank in saying that while I started out loving the portobello mushroom, it has become a bit too much for me – all because of the plump juicy texture, and I’ve began to order my bowls without it, because I just don’t want to create waste.
A few weeks ago, we took my mom and my youngest daughter, Brooke with us for a lunch trip and Brooke ordered the Glow Bowl and I was intrigued. I don’t venture much away from the things I find I like but she gave me a sample and it’s been my new favorite.
The Glow Bowl at Mother Earth OKC has spicy sweet potato noodles, bok choy, zucchini, onion, jalapeño, shiitake mushroom, coconut milk, and sunflower butter and it’s so light and refreshing and leaves me feeling healthy and full but not weighed down. We haven’t tried to make it at home yet, and we probably won’t, but I’ll always recommend it to anyone who is looking for a healthy vegan option out.
