Foie Gras Doughnut Veganized

After a Brooklyn eatery sparked controversy with a foie gras-filled doughnut, another shop has created a veganized rendition in response.

Earlier this year, vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores alike were outraged by Brooklyn restaurant Do or Dine’s sale of foie-gras filled doughnuts, resulting in an oppositional petition that collected thousands of signatures. However, Dun Well Doughnuts and vegan caterer The Regal Vegan have joined forces to veganize the controversial pastry and its contentious filling. The Regal Vegan conceived its decadent “faux gras,” which is the filling for the doughnut, to prove that “delicious food doesn’t have to be bad for you, or anyone else for that matter.” Vegan blogger Joshua Katcher of The Discerning Brute had a chance to sample the cruelty-free treat and describes it as “tender, airy dough speckled with herbs, slightly sweet, fried to perfection, and injected with the Regal Vegan’s paté of caramelized onions, lentils, and walnuts.”
