LITHED-UP SALAD (& SOUP)! 31 Aug 2015
We love Ian Brendle (Green Meadow Farm) and Z Food Farm's produce. So crisp, flavorful, and clean. Each week, these soups and salads change as we bring you summer greens straight from the farm. Here's what's available now:
Lithe Borscht Soup
Organic beets, organic tomato, onion, garlic, caraway, red wine vinegar and honey
This sweet, rosy, and creamy (dairy-free) chilled superfood soup is your body’s BFF. Remember all those legendary Russian centenarians? Beets, frequently consumed in borscht, a traditional Russian soup, may be one reason behind their long and healthy lives. Packed with antioxidants will have you energized and glowing in no time at all. Beets are loaded with anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals that can lead to aging, illness, and memory loss. Enjoy it cold.
One serving ($8)
Grilled Summer Bowl
Organic quinoa, brown rice, organic eggplant, organic heirloom tomato, shishito peppers, sherry vinaigrette and EVOO
This is the perfect post-Lithe meal. Like your favorite stir-fry, our grilled eggplant and shishito peppers are simple and completely addictive, and paired with protein-packed quinoa and rice (13 grams!). Shishito peppers are slender, finger-length green pods with thin skins and a delicious sweet flavor. Enjoy it cold.
One serving ($10)
Grilled Peaches & Squash Salad
Grilled organic squash, grilled organic peaches, parsley, white wine vinager & EVOO
This beautiful salad is so good and captures the flavor of late August. Yellow fleshed, Jersey peaches nestled among lightly charred summer squash and fronds of parsley are all brought together with a generous drizzle of white wine vinegar and EVOO. Enjoy it cold.
