As a store that aspires to be your go-to McHealthy, it was only natural these guys would appear on our menu at some point. And oh are we happy about it. Our creative Chef Nana has whipped up three dishes that will take you into three winddirections: we go west for that fresh californian burrito-style salad, we hit asia for some deliciously creamy (but low-calorie) noodles, and drift to the middle east for a beautiful meditteranean mix. All served in our organic, fresh, pure, 100% vegan, 100% gluten free, 100% delicious way. Dig in!
MIDDLE EASTERN TABBOULEH SALAD WITH TAHINI ORANGE
spinach/kale, quinoa, tomato, cucumber, chickpeas, shallot, red onion, mint, garlic, olive oil, lemon, cardamom, cumin, sesame seed, orange, apple vinegar, tamari, sesame oil, maple syrup, black pepper, coriander, himalayan salt
This one provides all the healthy fats and complex carbs. Seen it is also packed with fibre from the greens and plant-based protein from the peas and quinoa, it serves as the perfect whole package. Did you know quinoa is known as a 'pseudo-grain' as it is actually a seed? Popular under all the health-concious, it provides all the nine amino acids and is very high in vitamins and minerals.
This is like a citrussy, rawer version of something straight from the traditional tajine cuisine. The herbs add a sublte complexity but as a whole it stays fresh and light. A beautiful composition of deeper flavours.
MEXICAN BURRITO SALAD
Avocado, romaine, quinoa, black beans, corn, walnuts, red onion, tomato, paprika, lime, jalapeno, olive oil, tamari, cumin, chili powder, himalayan salt
Most substantial this one. Avocado is very nutritious as it carries over 20 vitamins and minerals, more fosfor than banana, and heart-healthy fatty acids. Walnuts contain these healthy fats too, and out of all nuts, are probably one of the most nutritious. They are proper brain-food too. Black beans help regulate blood sugar and, next to the corn and veggies, make it light to digest.
This is the one and only dish in our fridge where avo shows up, so we made sure you won't miss it. You won't. Next to that creamy, this jar is filled with all the crisp and the crunch and also the kick of your favourite burrito, but better, because yes, healthy.
GONE NUTS ASIAN KELP NOODLE
Kelp noodles, red pepper, cucumber, carrot, spring onion, black sesame, ginger, almonds, cashew, chilipowder, lime, tamara, applevinager, oliveoil, ahornsirop, sesame oil
This salad is generally highest in protein. What makes it so very special is the kelp factor. Kelp is a type of seaweed that can be used, when prepared properly, as a noodle. It is popular because of its wide and high variety of nutrients, in combination with being extremily low in carbs. One serving contains 7 calories! Thank you mother earth.
