P.F. Chang’s

Steamed Vegetable Dumplings and ½ order of Steamed Buddah’s Feast

Just because P.F. Chang’s has a vegetarian menu doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Since nearly all the picks from its Vegetarian Plates are overflowing with fat and/or sodium, look to the Starter section for the healthiest offerings. The best of the best: Steamed Vegetable Dumplings with only 260 calories and 2 fat grams. Round out your plate with a half order of Steamed Buddha’s Feast from the Vegetarian Menu and you’ll nail an additional 5 grams of fiber and 13 grams protein to keep you full for only 130 calories and zero saturated fat.

Stats (for Steamed Vegetable Dumplings and ½ order of Steamed Buddah’s Feast): 390 calories, 0g saturated fat, 610mg sodium, 21g protein
