So many meatless moons gone by. | Tara Mahadevan

Editor's note: Tara Mahadevan may not have been Gut Check's first "Veggielante," but she's worn the mantle for over a year now. She's off to new, exciting adventures in New York, and we asked her to wax nostalgic on thirteen months' worth of exploring vegetarian options in St. Louis. We wish her good luck and even better eating.

I am sad to say that I must bid adieu to the Veggielante. I had a great time visiting St. Louis' neighborhoods and sampling the various vegetarian dishes that our city has to offer. But the state of vegetarian fare in St. Louis has vastly improved since I began writing this column in February 2013 -- every restaurant is not only making more of an effort to cater to vegetarians, but to vegan, gluten-free and paleo diets as well.

As part of my farewell, I thought I'd share my three favorite dishes from my vegetarian escapades as the Veggielante.
