Mustard Seed Market Cafe: New Chef! New Menu!

As if the Mustard Seed Market Cafe in Montrose could get any better, they have hired Executive Chef Scot Jones, former chef of Chrissie Hynde's VegiTerranean restaurant (sadly gone)!

This is HUGE for those of us on a whole-foods, plant-based, oil-free diet or those of us with food allergies.  Finally a restaurant that we can eat at without concern!

The first thing Chef Scot did was overhaul the menu!  Being an oil-free, vegan himself, he saw the opportunity to incorporate this type of food into the new menu.  But, don't panic, you can still get your meat, chicken and fish on, if you are so inclined.

What I love most about the menu is that the newly added labeling system, has taken the guess work and negotiations out of ordering.  You clearly know which dishes are raw, gluten-free, vegan, nut-free, soy-free and oil-free (first in the country!).  Don't despair, special requests are still encouraged!

One of the newest features to the menu, is a Customize Your Burger option for a mere $10.  You pick the type of burger and toppings.  There are two vegan burger options - locally-owned Luna Burger and GardeinDaiya Cheese for you "cheese" lovers.  Even vegan-mayo!  Plus an array of additional topping options.

If that's not your bag, check out these other tasty vegan dishes: Risotto Cakes (which ROCK, but sadly are not oil-free), Grilled Cauliflower Steak or Buccatini Pasta Carbonara!

And of course - there are vegan desserts!!!  I always get the vegan Double Chocolate Raspberry cake!  Don't forget to hit the bakery for more vegan deliciousness to take home!
