Vegan Spanish food isn’t easy. Mostly because Spanish food doesn’t really bend to vegan, especially when it comes to dishes packed with jamon or eggs. But, Jaleo by Jose Andres at Cosmopolitan Las Vegas makes it a bit easier to eat some Spanish cuisine without handing in your Vegan Card.
While looking over the allergen menu, it may seem like there are only two options for vegan dishes (OK, there are only two options), the good news is many of the vegetarian dishes can be tweaked, so your options expand.
True vegan dishes are the Espinacas a la Catalana, sauteed spinach with pine nuts, raisins and apples, or the Escalivada Catalana, which is fire-roasted red peppers, eggplant and sweet onions in a sherry dressing.
Dishes that can be made vegan with some modifications include: Patatas Bravas, fried eggplant (no honey), sliced apple and fennel salad (no cheese), ensalada de garbanza (skip the bread) and roasted onions and pine nuts (no cheese). They also have a veggie paella on occasion to enjoy.
