Austin may be a vegan oasis among Southerners, but the rest of the Lone Star State is still lacking in cruelty-free fare. Mike Behrend, co-owner of San Antonio’s Green Vegetarian Cuisine, is trying to change all that with his new prospective project, Earth Burger, a veg fast food restaurant that will serve savory and healthful dishes, such as a $5.00 Nacho Burger or Chik-n Sandwich, which diners can complement with a kale salad or hummus and carrots for $3.00. Behrend has taken to Kickstarter to raise the $40,000 that will be necessary to make Earth Burger operational, and as of press time, he has garnered 104 backers and raised $8,899. If Behrend’s Earth Burger comes to fruition, it will be Texas’ first all-veg fast food joint, and with 24 days left in the campaign, things look promising for the culinary entrepreneur.
