Renee loves The Pulp Fresh Bar's Inka Trail Fresh Bowl. This fresh bowl has kale, tomato, lentils, corn, avocado and red onion. The dressing is a special Peruvian sauce with heaps of cilantro - and get this... for being a “no cilantro” person, she actually loved the sauce! It is so fresh and packs lots of flavour. She may be a cilantro fan after all! You can choose to have this bowl served over rice or quinoa. Renee personally like this bowl over rice, as it is more filling that way.
Renée raves "The Planet Burger (a vegan burger at Planet Diner) will knock your socks off!" You won’t believe it’s made of only plant ingredients...really. It’s “beefy”, juicy, has amazing cashew “cheeze” on it and if you get it with side of onion rings you’ll be happy, happy, happy! Don’t leave without dessert: YOU MUST order the cashew ice cream. It will amaze you! It's sooo good!
Renee really loved the "Pineapple & Sweet Potato Burrito Bowl" at Grounded. It’s so flavourful, and filling thanks to the rice and black beans. The pineapple gives this bowl a sweet and refreshing flavour too! The sauce on this bowl is also amazing...she’ll be ordering this bowl again and again!
At Soup Surreal Renée struggles to make just one choice...but finally decides her fall favourite is the Moroccan Tomato. It is a hearty soup with a lovely nutty flavour. This soup contains natural peanut butter, toasted pecans, tomatoes (of course) and sweet potatoes among other delicious fresh ingredients. It is important to note that this soup does include honey, so vegans who do not eat honey should choose another option.
In the fall Renee loves soups. She picked the delightful Golden Pumpkin Soup at Stratford Thai for the perfect fall lunch. There is a delicious curry spice to this soup which nicely complements the pumpkin. She adds a side of steamed veggies with peanut sauce for a more filling meal, and suggests the fresh mango salad for a lighter meal.
