Eternal Abundance's offering for the challenge is called the Vibrant Sunshine Bowl. It was a hearty
|Vibrant Sunshine Bowl|
assortment of good things including, tomatoes, beets, carrots, avocado, some meaty (sorry vegetarians) marinated and grilled tempeh served over a mixed green leaf salad and brown rice. There were even a few tortilla chips thrown in for good measure. This was a very satisfying bowl and overall our second favorite of the challenge!
|French Lentil Stew|
We also enjoyed a French Lentil Stew with Bok Choy. This was hearty and delicious and I would gladly eat it every day. Eternal Abundance is a cosy light place to enjoy a good meal. They are given to the organics and cleanses and such in the retail grocery part of the store but I already promised not to whine about that ...this is very hard for me. Come by and enjoy some tasty healthy food.
Our next stop was at Lotus Seed Vegetarian Restaurant on Kingsway at Boundary. This was my favorite restaurant of the challenge locations. I found it to be the most spiritual, leaning towards a Buddhist approach to vegetarian cuisine.
My partner and I spent some time trying to identify all the 'influential vegetarians' in the wall art but could not name them all. Recognizing Albert Einstein and the Dalai Lama were all I needed to smile.
|Thai Lemongrass Curry|
Thai Lemongrass Curry was the challenge offering and is
also on the regular menu. Tofu was the protein with some peas and carrots, served over rice with a pickled red cabbage garnish. The sauce was rich with coconut and had a slow building mild heat! I loved it but my partner was a little less keen. The lemongrass flavour is not her favorite thing.
Their Yam Soup does not look like much but it was rich with coconut again and very filling. Very nice. You don't need to be a vegetarian to enjoy this place. There are many interesting choices on the menu. Come and eat healthy and realize that you are doing something good for the planet.
