Veggie Grill’s New Spring Menu is a Must-Try
The folks at Veggie Grill have a new Spring Menu and they invited me out to one of their Los Angeles locations to give it a try. It didn’t take much convincing to get me to spend an afternoon trying out their new recipes. I’ve been a fan of their food ever since I tasted their buffalo wings, and later found out the entire restaurant is a meat-free zone. You know you found a winner when the wings you’re eating aren’t chicken, and yet, are some of the best you’ve ever tasted.
Veggie Grill’s new Spring Menu adds five new dishes, covering everything from appetizer to dessert; asparagus to rhubarb. See what their chefs cooked up below:
Fresh Pea + Asparagus Soup
Made from scratch using fresh-market peas, asparagus, chopped mint, and cracked pepper.
Bánh Mi Salad
Glazed organic tofu, chargrilled eggplant, house-pickled carrots, daikon, white cabbage, fresh jalapños, basil, cilantro, and marinated kale.
Spice Market Bowl
Grilled tofu seasoned with Moroccan-spices, sautéed asparagus, sweet peppers and leeks, roasted corn, farro, swiss chard, beets, golden raisins, and preserved lemon vinaigrette.
Seasoned with sea salt and drizzled preserved lemon vinaigrette.
Strawberry + Rhubarb Parfait
Crushed ginger snaps mixed in a parfait of fresh starberry and rhubarb compote, and strawberry crema.
I brought my friend Lander along to help try out a few of the new menu items. We ordered the Bánh Mi Salad, Spice Market Bowl, and the Strawberry + Rhubarb Parfait, along with a few Veggie Grill favorites I’ve had before. You MUST try their crispy cauliflower and buffalo wings. Each dish was as good as they sound, but my personal favorite had to be the Bánh Mi Salad. The glazed organic tofu went perfectly on top the bed of marinated kale. Delicious!
Even though Veggie Grill’s menu is all about veggies, grains and nuts, that doesn’t stop them from bringing vegetables to the center of your plate in a tasteful, yet healthy fashion. You don’t have to be seeking an uber-healthy meal to enjoy your trip to VG. Their new spring menu, and spring menus past, continue to impress even the most skeptical vegetable eaters. I for one fancy myself as a hamburger connoisseur, but leave that title at the door, as well as my guilt.
