Here’s a Few Informational Highlights From Our Upcoming New Menu.
Pistachio-Black Rice Cake
We use Lundberg, eco-farmed black Japonica rice. Lundberg has been family owned and operated in California since 1937. Black Japonica rice is nutrient dense, high in antioxidants similar to those found in blue and black berries. The cooked rice is mixed with plantain, Monterey Jack, breadcrumbs, herbs and crusted with pistachio nuts. Pistachio nuts are a superfood that are low in calories, high in protein and packed with nutrients.
Also called Asian Sea Bass, is a fish indigenous to Australia and Southeast Asia. We use a sustainably farm raised fish from Australis (www.TheBetterFish.com). It is raised with no antibiotics, hormones, additives or colorants and is free of mercury, PCB’s and contaminants. High in Omega 3’s and low in calories.
Mashed Organic Chickpeas
Chickpeas are high in vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein. These characteristics are responsible for most of their health benefits, which range from weight management to blood sugar control. Our new side dish is vegan and prepared with olive oil, roasted garlic, lemon zest, red bell peppers, thyme, salt and crushed red chile.
Organic Cornmeal Spoon Bread
Our recipe has organic corn polenta, pumpkin, milk, butter, grilled corn, honey, and cheese. It is cooked on the stove top until it thickens and is served as a side on our Blackened Salmon and Tomato Basil Chicken main plates.
