It seems no matter the season or the dish or the flavor, whatever Veggie Grill chooses to create they do it in fabulous fashion. The fall season is no different as Veggie Grill incorporated fresh ingredients to go along with new dishes that will please any diner, vegetarian or not.
The dish that really brings out the flavors of fall along with vibrant colors that you associate with this season would have to be the rustic farm bowl. The vegetables are seemingly endless in this bowl that is highlight by the marinated and then grilled mushrooms, roasted yams, roasted tomatoes and the very unique broccoli pesto. You can and must add on the apple sage sausage that not only has the flavor that you would find in a just grinded sausage but it has a hearty texture and taste to it that brings balance to the dish and all of the vegetables.
Mole Chickin’ Burrito is the culmination of two new tasty things at Veggie Grill, the burrito and a mole sauce. Veggie Grill fans have been longing for a burrito almost since Veggie Grill opened their doors, but in typical Veggie Grill fashion, they waited until they perfected it. A burrito though was not quite enough, Veggie Grill had to come up with mole sauce, which is no easy task. They came up with their mole sauce by combining cocoa powder and golden raisins to create a wonderfully rich sauce that might be as overpowering as the authentic version, but it is very flavorful and compliments the burrito wonderfully.
The chickin’ Milanese salad.is bound to be a favorite long into every other season of the year as we can only hope that it takes up permanent residency on the menu. Veggie Grill reformulated their vegan chicken formulation for this salad, creating a crispy cutlet that has a crispy exterior to go along with a grilled chicken flavor and if you did a blind taste test you would swear you were eating the real thing. They also came up with a perfect shredded Parmesan cheese top off that salad and then it is finished off with a great citrus vinaigrette dressing. This is simply everything you could ever want in a salad.
