The Easy Vegan

I an watch “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” on repeat and never get tired of it, so every now and then I have the Food Network on and watch something else. Last month I ended up getting hooked on ‘The Great American Food Truck Race,’ and watching a Colorado truck compete. 

Not only did they compete, Denver’s ‘The Easy Vegan’ food truck recently claimed first place in the 16th season of ‘The Great American Food Truck Race.’

The Easy Vegan earned a prize of $50,000 for the win, adding to $14,000 won during a previous episode of the season.

The food from The Easy Vegan gets switched up quite a bit, but the central focus is making approachable vegan food that can be enjoyed by all, vegans and non-vegans.

During the summer, The Easy Vegan tends to be found at farmers markets in the Denver area. Their full schedule is published on their website, with Instagram being a great place to find their ever-evolving menu.
