As we enter the fortnight commencing with the first new menu changes of September, we take a look into some dishes that haven't been on the menu for a while.
King Prawn Teriyaki, Soba Noodles & Sesame Seeds
King Prawn is always a popular dish among our clients, so we tried to mix things up and go back to a Teriyaki surrounding, along with an energy boosting supplement in sesame seeds, which are a good source of energy due to the high fat content. They contain healthy fats like polyunsaturated fatty acids and Omega-6. As well as containing fibre, iron, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus that helps boost energy levels.
Sweet & Sour Chicken with Spiced Rice
As good as it sounds! Our Sweet & Sour Chicken is the perfect alternative to that takeaway you're always craving on a Friday and Saturday night. The best thing about this dish, is that you can't taste the difference to what the chip shops will provide you with, but it isn't coated in additional MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) to make you want and crave more, plus it shouldn't feature that dreaded dry mouth afterwards!
Harissa Chicken with Mediterranean Vegetables and Roasted New Potatoes
We try and always have a simple chicken dish, which is authentically seasoned with a different spice each week, partnered with a combination of vegetables and carbohydrates. The macros for this dish are excellent, and can be consumed no matter what your goals are, due to containing 46g of protein and being under 400 calories.
Thai Yellow Chicken Curry, Spiced Rice & Dried Apricots
Marketing's Chris' favourite dish we've done since he started here. The Thai Yellow Chicken Curry is always being requested (by him) and a couple of others but due to us trying reduce any repetition we, try and have it on only every few menu changes. The light, creamy, Asian curry has seasoned and roasted cashew nuts and dried apricots in, adding something a bit different to most other curries you'll try. The best thing about this, is that similarly to the Sweet & Sour Chicken, it's ideal to have as an alternative to a takeaway meal, due to how tasty it is yet the macronutrients, and more so the calorie count (and what'll put weight on), so you shouldn't feel guilty having it!
Like always, the Malaysian Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry alongside the Almond Protein Pancakes breakfast option are on the vegan menu, along with the Tofu Teriyaki which has been a popular dish amongst clients recently, meaning that has retained it's spot on the Vegan menu for another fortnight. There are some tasty additions to the first new menu in September though, some circulating for the first time in a few months.
Vegan Haggis, Neeps and Tatties with Spring Cabbage
The Scottish themed dish has always had positive reviews amongst it's suitors, so we thought it would be a nice addition to this menu. Following this rotation, I expect to see it off the menu for a month or so, before making a big return upon the end of November and the start of December, for obvious reasons.
Vegan Shepherd’s Pie Topped with Sweet Potato Mash
The Shepherd's Pie alternative has returned to our menu. A mix mixture of oats topped with sweet potato mash, garnished with a sprinkle of parsley makes it a tasty treat for any dinner.
Tomato & Mediterranean Vegetable, Wholemeal Fusilli Pasta
An ideal dish for another trying to carb load due to 55g of carbohydrates. This dish is perfect for anyone trying to get in as much as possible for a busy following day, especially for long winded and energy excessive sports matches.
