Veggie Grill Spring Menu Tasting and $100 Gift Card Giveaway – Embracing a Veggie Positive Lifestyle with Seasonal Spring Menu Offerings @VeggieGrill!
Sponsored by Veggie Grill
Last week I was invited by Veggie Grill to go behind the scenes of their Hollywood location with CEO Greg Dollarhyde (he is now officially one of my favorite people—so passionate about his work!). It was a fun morning spent learning about Veggie Grill’s mission and helping them create some of their most popular items in the restaurant kitchen. I also got to taste lots of delicious and creative food. The whole trip left me feeling inspired thanks to their mouthwatering, completely veggie-centric meals. I am totally impressed by their menu.

As most of you know, I only partner with brands that I can really get behind. Veggie Grill is all about serving “veggie positives,” or the 50 million people who are actively seeking more veggies, fruits and whole grains in their diet. I’ve often used the word “flexitarian” to describe my diet, though I may like the term “veggie positive” even better. Veggie Grill’s mission is to bring vegetables, fruits, nuts and grains to the center of the plate in delicious ways, making it convenient to be a mindful eater.

I definitely saw examples of this when I got a chance to sample their popular and seasonal menu items. They have a really diverse selection with dishes inspired by various regions and flavor profiles. With crave-worthy items like mac-and-cheese and creamy dessert parfaits, you’d be amazed at the veggie-positive culinary magic happening here. I mean, be honest. Doesn’t this look amazing?

I had fun hanging out in the kitchen, cooking with Greg, and seeing how all of this deliciousness comes together. From marinating and char-grilling their vegetables to using special marinades and ridiculously tasty sauces, humble garden vegetables are elevated to another level of tasty. I had a great time. Just please don’t ask me to do the dishes.
The entrees I had a chance to try were gorgeous, filled with vibrant colors and flavors that never made me feel like I was giving anything up or missing out simply because I was eating vegetables. It may have been early in the day, but I couldn’t resist digging into all of the different dishes we made, including the Quinoa Power Salad, Sonoran Winter Bowl, Buffalo Bomber with Sweetheart Fries, and the limited Spring menu Spice Market Bowl.
Quinoa Power Salad – layers and layers of flavor.
VeggieGrill does something that few other restaurant chains do—they introduce special menu items that incorporate the ingredients of the season. It’s part of their commitment to bringing you the freshest, most flavorful ingredients they can find. What a great option for folks who would like to get more vegetables into their diet. With so many unhealthy dining options out there, why not change things up once in a while and make a veggie positive choice? I couldn’t resist topping off this amazing meal with one of their seasonal Spring Menu desserts. I chose this Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, of course. Hard to believe it was dairy free!

All in all it was a great morning, I left feeling full and happy. I also think I may have found my favorite new lunch spot. It’s definitely worth a visit!
