Spicy Kenyan Vegan Corn and White Beans with Pigeon Peas, Quinoa & Ancient Grains Medley and Kachumbari Slaw (Plant-based)
This dish was very filling, comforting, and satisfying; the slaw added a very refreshing crunch of veggie goodness. However, it doesn’t go great with late summer weather – better to wait on this one until it is cooler outside.
Impossible Farmhouse Meatball with Lentil Bread, Spinach, Marinated Vegetables, and Creamy Herb Dressing (Plant-based)
Very interesting dish with delicious components that just didn’t quite come together for us. The lentil bread is very flavorful on its own but it is difficult to eat with the meatball filling because it is so dense and dry. You almost just want to eat the filling and then finish with the bread. The creamy herb dressing was a nice finishing touch that contrasted the rich buttery lentil bread.
The Impossible™ Burger Slider with Wasabi Cream and spicy Asian Slaw on a Sesame Seed Bun (Plant-based)
This one is always a favorite of ours! It is just the perfect little snack size with a fun sweet n savory taste and a bit of spice. We highly recommend that you request extra wasabi cream sauce.
Chocolate Pudding Terrarium with Avocado Cream, Matcha Crumble, and Baby Herbs (Plant-based)
Always exciting to see tea used as an ingredient! This was a stripped down version from what we had seen last year at the Epcot Flower Festival 2019. This year included just the chocolate pudding and the matcha crumble and was missing the chia seed jelly.
The pudding was incredibly smooth and rich and the chocolate had nice sweet fruity notes that were brought out with the matcha. Because matcha is made from green tea leaves, there can be an earthy bitterness to it. That bitter flavor enhances the flavor profile of the chocolate which is why we love to pair almost all teas with chocolate.
Macaroni and Cheese with House-made Italian Sausage and Peppers (Plant-based)
This dish was new this year and we were pretty excited to try another vegan option. Unfortunately, this dish was a bit too heavy for us. The sauce was fairly thin and not too rich, but the sausage made the dish pretty heavy. There were almost equal portions of sausage to pasta. Maybe next time we would order it without the sausage and see if we can get extra pasta!
Banana Bread with Mixed Berry Compote (Plant-based)
We underestimated this dish and were very surprised by how much we loved this one. It is very simple, but everything was just made perfectly and served with the right ratios. With some vegan dessert breads, we have found them to be too dense or oily, but this one was nice and light; still moist without being dense. The bread also has a nice sweet crumbly coffee-cake like topping. And everything was topped with vegan whipped topping.
