I won't claim to be vegan, but I can certainly appreciate delicious vegan food. I don't know how these chefs make vegetables and tofu taste like the real thing, but man, you’ve got to commend 'em for it. Here are seven places around OKC and Tulsa where you can find an incredible variety of delightful vegan dishes.
