Fresh&co the rapidly growing New York City brand known for using the freshest local and seasonal ingredients in tasty, chef-designed recipes and catering ” has created a new offering to give the traditional salad bar a run for its money. Just in time for colder weather, the brand has unveiled a Quinoa Bar, a healthy, warm, and nutritious alternative to the salad.
Fresh&co’s Executive Chef Jeremy Leech has introduced several chef-designed quinoa bowls, and guests can also create their own bowls featuring an array of vegetables, proteins, and sauces.
The base for the bowl is a blend of red and white organic quinoa, an excellent source of complete protein, in addition to a boiled local kale from Satur Farms in Long Island, N.Y. The dish can be topped with meat or vegan protein options including chicken, smoked tofu, thai-spiced turkey, jumbo shrimp, and the new Beyond Meat chicken, a vegan soy-based protein. Guests are offered the option to add several vegetables and top with an array of sauces, which include sweet chili, soy ginger, and chipotle vinaigrette.
In addition to the Quinoa Bar, Fresh&co has revealed many other seasonal options: sandwiches, side dishes, and salad options like fresh arugula, and kale and rainbow swiss chard from Satur Farms. The Greater Tater sandwich is an incredible meatless offering that puts the portobello mushroom to the test, and seasonal side salads feature creative and healthy twists on classic offerings.
