The latest menu is a really super healthy one! No cheese for those adverse to dairy, and only a spot of wheat, in the mustard panko on the baked cod fillet. The summer soup is nothing but veggies, fresh herbs, white beans and raw Icelandic dulse. Dulse is a red seaweed rich in vitamins, minerals and protein. Dulse has a very high iodine content, and eating it improves gut flora (one must consume seaweed regularly to reap this benefit). The red lentils are flavored with garlic and kombu (another popular type of seaweed), which has similar health benefits to the dulse. It would be great if you can work a little seaweed into your family’s regular diet! Amaranth is a new addition to the KO repertoire of dishes. It has more protein than any other gluten-free grain (although it is technically from another plant species). Amaranth also has more calcium, magnesium, iron and fiber than other gluten-free grains. The chaat masala seasoning on the chicken, is a unique combination of tangy, tart, sweet and slightly spicy. It is a street food favorite in India. One word of caution-there is a bit of heat to the cauliflower gobi- please let me know if it is too much. Thanks!
