Last Thursday, NutriEats had the pleasure of attending the Artcaffe vegan media tasting event held at the Artcaffe Grand (Westgate). Artcaffe Grand is the first branch to introduce a vegan menu. On the menu was butternut steak on a bed of lentils and root vegetables, potato gnocchi and seasonal vegetables on eggplant cream, traditional couscous served with vegetables and sweet nuts, grilled zucchini salad and a classic Gazpacho soup served with house focaccia. The food was definitely tasty and very fresh – curated specially by Art’s very own Chef Hammo. We loved all the dishes but particularly the butternut steak!

Neither of us are vegan, but we do promote healthy living and healthy eating. If you are a vegan or vegetarian, the key to making sure you are maintaining a healthy diet is to ensure you are getting enough protein. Here are some sources of protein for vegetarians (not all apply to vegans). For vegans, we suggest protein shakes which ensure you are getting enough protein in your diet.

Some other healthy favourites we recommend at Artcaffe are the Caesar salad (dressing on the side), the sandwiches (without mayo) and the breakfasts (poached eggs without hollandaise or the smoked salmon bagel with the low fat cream cheese!

The event was wonderful and we are happy that Artcaffe is addressing various healthy eating preferences such as the vegan way of life. We highly recommend that you grab a vegan dish next you’re there, you won’t regret it!

Many thanks to SHK Consulting for organising the event!
