Eating to Live on the Outside: The Beet
Happy Saturday! It’s time for our weekly “trip” to a far away restaurant and this week Eating to Live on the Outside heads up to Toronto, Canada to eat at The Beet Organic Café & Market. How does it stack up? It looks pretty good to me. Here’s a list of five things that might make the cut.
- Locally grown veggies, Toronto sprout blend, tamari roasted seeds on mixed greens with dressing; looks pretty good, but I’d order the dressing on the side.
Spinach & Walnut
- Spinach, walnut, sliced pear tossed in vegan creamy garlic dressing and with marinated roasted seeds; same deal, dressing on the side.
Curry on Quinoa
- Chickpea, potato, quinoa and spinach; pretty simple and greens are a plus.
Organic Housemade Tofu Burger
- Tofu and walnut patty on whole wheat bun topped with caramelized onions, grated carrots, sunflower sprouts, tomato, house mayo and served with potato wedges and house ketchup; I’ll skip the mayo and if the potato wedges aren’t fried, they’re cool.
Avocado & Grilled Tofu
- Marinated and grilled teriyaki tofu steaks, avocado, arugula, tomato and vegan house mayo; looks okay, the arugula is awesome.
Okay, if I really had to pick something. I’m going for the Avocado & Grilled Tofu. I love arugula. It’s just too hard to resist, but what about you? What would you order? Check out The Beet’s menu and let me know.
