As I slowly try more and more vegan foods, I have found that the old stereotypes that I hold near and dear to my heart are absolutely wrong. I read about Plantita in an email from the Santa Fe Reporter’s Morning Coffee about buying local. I want restaurants, bakeries, food trucks, breweries, and distilleries to be around in Santa Fe after the pandemic.
So I thought I would try Plantita. I ordered 6 green chile bagels(16). The website had a testimonial about how chewy the bagels were. I happen to love chewy bagels. I thought I would give this small new business a try.
Plantita is run out of a small commercial kitchen in the same strip mall as Alicia’s. It is a one man show. Thomas replies to the on-line orders swiftly and efficiently. He also answers questions. Yes, he actually gets back to you. He is amazing. His product is even more amazing.
I started with the 6 bagels. Thomas didn’t skimp on the green chile, which was tasty and delicious. I was impressed at how fresh and chewy these bagels were. I haven’t had bagels in years. Mostly because the bagels I have bought were kind of like chewing on rocks. How could you not like Plantita’s bagels.
For my next order, I bought a dozen bagels(30) and corn bread(20). Actually, I love corn bread more than bagels. But you have to make cornbread right. I have to taste the corn.
I only had vegan butter in the house. So this is a photo of that delicious bagel and vegan butter. I also wanted to have my bagels with cream cheese. Sprouts had a wonderful vegan cream cheese by Daiya. We got the chives and onion which you can see below.
Yum! This was so delicious! This was a perfect way to start the morning.
No, I am not a vegan but I certainly enjoy this vegan bakery. I am a repeat customer.
To order you need to go online. There is a 3 day wait until your order is processed. I suggested to Thomas that he place this pertinent info on the website before you get to the order page. I didn’t realize this until I ordered my first bag of bagels. I thought it would have been very helpful to know. You can order anytime online but pickup is usually Tuesday through Saturday.
