Who says it’s not easy to be a vegan in Paris? I beg to differ. There are a number of fantastic vegetarian and vegan eateries all over the city of lights. Tender seitan, far better than any I’ve had in the U.S., is a common offering. This simple dish of seitan and mushrooms in a sweet paprika “cream” sauce is an amalgam of seitan dishes I enjoyed at Le Potager du Marais and Les Cinq Saveurs D’Ananda. Photos by Evan Atlas.

Vegan sausage is a fun protein source that provides plenty of flavor and spice to a meal. The bold taste of Tofurky or Field Roast sausage provides a perfect foil for fresh greens. I prefer these brands to other kinds of faux sausage, because they’re made with tofu and seitan rather then textured soy protein.
