Meet honeygrow’s CEO and Their New, Seasonal Plant-Based Dishes for Meatless Monday…and Every Day of the Week

January 7th, 2019


honeygrow, the trendsetting DIY eatery with feel-good vibes and locally sourced ingredients, is joining the global Meatless Monday movement. And they just launched two savory and seasonal meatless dishes that you definitely need to try–and fall in love with. We did!

Look for these new featured meatless items at honeygrow:

 

Soulfull Oats Salad (S.O.S.) – is a seasonal winter salad with organic baby arugula, roasted shaved local Brussels sprouts, roasted sweet potato spirals, dried cherries, ricotta salata, house-made multi-seed crackers (made with Soulfull Oats*), with a pomegranate vinaigrette.

*A special note – for every S.O.S salad sold, honeygrow and The Soulfull Project will donate a portion of sales to local food banks in the US.

 


 

Vegan AF – is a winter stir-fry with sweet potato and zucchini spirals, house-made vegan chorizo, roasted spicy tofu (non-GMO), mushrooms, kale, red onions, bell peppers, cilantro, spiced agave cashews, and a smoked paprika-tomato sauce.

 


 

Meatless Monday checked in with honeygrow CEO and founder, Justin Rosenberg, to learn more about the healthy options at all 29 locations of his super busy and popular restaurant concept.

 

 

1. What was the impetus for including plant-based dishes on your menu and working with Meatless Monday?

honeygrow was created with plant-based options in mind—I was vigorously vegan when I conceived of the brand. Finding meatless options for lunch every day at my desk job was a constant struggle. Working with Meatless Monday is a perfect fit since our menu is designed to be completely customizable.

2. Why is it important to you to offer customers a wide selection of customizable plant-based options?

As someone who is seeking plant-based options, particularly when I’m on the go, choices are key. We want to be able to provide plant-based options and we know that people want to be creative with their food. With our style of service + range of options, anyone can come in and customize any dish to their preferences.

3. What is your favorite honeygrow dish to eat on Meatless Monday?

Right now, it’s the Vegan AF—it’s our first stir-fry that features sweet potato and zucchini spirals, house-made vegan chorizo, roasted spicy tofu (non-GMO), mushrooms, kale, red onions, bell peppers, cilantro, spiced agave cashews, and a smoked paprika-tomato sauce. It’s hearty, a tad spicy, and ridiculously good.

On January 4th, Meatless Monday hosted a Facebook Live event from a honeygrow location in Brooklyn. Find out more here.
