Syd: Because the vegetarian of the 2 of us, I led the cost within the salad division! We tried two: the Den Mom and the Almond Caesar!
On the left is the Den Mom, which consisted of maple-roasted squash, pomegranate, beet hummus, cauliflower, lentils, pepitas, child kale, and pickled apricot. Whereas at first I wasn’t positive if I might prefer it, I ended up loving that there was a large assortment of various tastes and textures! It was kinda like veggie tapas, and I am very, VERY into tapas.
TBH, I believe I favored the second salad extra — that was the vegan Almond Caesar. I actually favored the Almond Caesar as a result of it was actually flavorful, and most kale tastes like exhausting rubbish to me. Nevertheless, the celebrities of the salad had been undoubtedly the croutons — they had been made fully out of ALMOND FLOUR, they usually had been SO GOOD.
The facet of candy potato was additionally delish!!! It jogged my memory that I need not douse each potato I eat in salt to get taste, so mainly I am gonna be a well being guru now.
Jon-Michael: The Den Mom really jogged my memory of my very own mom, and never simply due to the title. Rising up, my mother made it some extent to make our dinner plates as colourful as potential — suppose yellow creamed corn, purple sliced tomatoes, inexperienced sliced zucchini, and many others. The Den Mom is mainly the salad equal of that. Whereas the lentils had been a little bit bland, the pickled apricots (who knew you possibly can pickle apricots?!) and the marginally spicy spaghetti squash had been significantly good.
The Almond Caesar was reminder that if kale is ready the fitting method, it may be actually good. It felt ~massaged~, so consuming it did not really feel like chewing on tree bark, and it tasted like a loaded salad with out really being loaded down.
