On Tonight: The Veg Edge

The spunky chefs, restaurateurs and food truck owners featured on The Veg Edge prove that vegetarian and vegan food offers way more than tofu and wheatgrass. In Austin, Texas, this adorable couple runs the Vegan Yacht, where people line up for the mock chicken sammie even though the truck next door sells cheesesteaks and hot dogs.

A vegetable diet is not just for hipsters…you'll meet vegetarian firefighters, a kickboxing chef who serves up Meatless Mondays at his upscale Manhattan restaurant, and plenty of carnivores who love getting their veggie fix.

Catch The Veg Edge tonight at 9pm/8c on Cooking Channel.
