For most public school kids, vegetarian lunch options are limited to garden salads and French fries, but in Rochester, Minnesota, school administrators are meeting the demand for veg-friendly fare. This year students in all Rochester public schools will have a wide variety of vegetarian and gluten-free options. The new veg menu items include traditional alternatives such as veggie burgers, stir-fry, and fajitas, as well as more diverse eats, such as roasted peppers on flat bread, black-bean taco salad, and chipotle sweet potatoes. Some of the gluten-free options, including pasta in marinara and taco salad with chips, are also veg-friendly.
