Shiver me timbers, it’s Lobster day!

Lobsters have been ‘making waves’ in the news a bit lately. One Maine restaurant made headlines recently for using marijuana to sedate lobsters to ease the cooking process. As much fun as that might sound, we’re a little more inclined to keep these little crustaceans alive and drug-free.

But there’s still plenty to do with all the tasty maritime classics inspired by these red sea dwellers. Plant-based lobster is just as tasty as the original! Check out our list of 5 lobster-inspired recipes for your plant-based kitchen.
