Michigan’s Best Local Foods: Jackson’s Craveable Food Is Wholesome, But Looks Decadent

JACKSON, MI – It might not look like it, but all of Craveable’s food is vegan and good for you.

Craveable has been open since April and is run by Karen Slaughter, husband Tom Slaughter, daughter Jordon Denslow and fiancé Taylor Dancy. The whole family is vegan and was looking for a way to show their love for cooking to the Jackson community, Karen said.

“We just wanted to show people that vegan food can taste good too,” Karen said.

Although the food truck hasn’t been operating for long, business has been great, Jordon said. They have a family atmosphere and enjoy sharing their passion for food with the community.

The food truck prides itself on having plant-based foods in-house that everyone can enjoy, Jordon said. The menu is extensive and includes classic dishes such as burgers, loaded macaroni and cheese, loaded fries, tacos, crispy apples and more.

All of the burgers are made from plants, including mushrooms, oats, a variety of beans and other items, Karen said. They also make their own sauces, like ranch and sour cream, which are mostly cashew-based, she said.

“It’s made with healthy ingredients, but it doesn’t taste healthy,” Karen said.

The most popular item is the classic burger, Jordon said, which comes on a brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise. The loaded bacon ranch fries are also a big sell and come with bacon, mushrooms, scallions, and homemade ranch.

Locations, times, and updates on where to find Craveable are posted on its Facebook page. More information can be found on its website.
