  • Frittata with Eggs

With Halloween rapidly approaching, we are preparing a menu full of TREATS for you to enjoy. No tricks here! We're going to be dishing up the freshest, most delicious and nutritious meals for you to enjoy next week, with a heavy focus on Pumpkin and Squash! In honor of Halloween, our chefs have incorporated these ingredients in ways that will put any pumpkin spiced latte to shame. 

This dish is back by popular demand, and we're offering three different protein options to choose from this time around! Our Moroccan Stuffed Delicata Squash with Coconut Quinoa, Dried Cherry Pilaf and your choice of Ground Lamb, Pulled Chicken or Chickpeas is terrifyingly scrumptious and perfect for a household of different types of eaters. Delicata squash are yellow, oblong, and more savory and less than sweet than is traditionally associated with pumpkins and squashes. Delicata Squash is currently in season and is the perfect shape for stuffing! AND - if you attend our Healthy Holidays Cooking Class next week, this is one of the ingredients we will be featuring!

For our Special Salmon this week, Chef Sara will be dusting the salmon filet with cumin, then topping it with our scratch made Cilantro Pumpkin Seed Pesto, which unlike traditional pesto is dairy, nut and soy free. What is the spooky secret to making our pesto so delicious? Toasting the pumpkin seeds! This helps to bring out the pumpkin and nutty notes of the seeds, while also giving the pesto a hearty, slightly crunchy texture to contrast with the silky smooth salmon filet. How scary good does that sound???  

While pumpkin is so often used for decoration, we are pumped to use Sugar Pie Pumpkins, which are smaller, traditional style pumpkins, to craft our Pumpkin Soup! This recipe is delightfully creamy, yet completely dairy free. For both our Pumpkin Soup and Pumpkin Pie Chia Seed Pudding, expect sweetness from the pumpkin and maple syrup, plus delightful fall flavors thanks to spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and a few not-so-haunting secrets we have up our sleeves.

Last and certainly not least, do not snooze on our Healthy Holidays Hands-On Cooking Class and Tasting at our kitchen here in Manayunk, coming up next Thursday, November 2ndCLICK HERE to learn more about the class and purchase tickets. We have a few spots remaining for this intimate evening with Chef Beth and Wendy of Sage Integrative Health, so be sure to buy your tickets before we sell out! Cheers & Chew Well!
