Located in Chelsea, New York this seemingly hidden vegan restaurant provides an elegant setting without the extravagant prices.
If you aren’t looking for the exact address, you might just miss this hidden jewel.
Blossom was recommended by my cousin that lives close to Manhattan, but is a carnivore by all means, so I wasn’t sure at all what to expect.
I must say, I was in for a surprise, and so was my cousin (not only a carnivore, but a bit anti-veggie).
Check out the delectable menu we were fortunate enough to enjoy:
We each ordered a starter to split. I, the Seitan Empanadas and my cousin, the Black-eyed Pea Cake- crispy cake of Yukon gold potatoes, black eyed peas, chipotle aioli.
For the main course, I decided (after much decision making, everything sounded so amazing!) on the Pistachio & Pepper Dusted Tofu (I’m a huge fan of pistachios!)
(root vegetable crepe, lemon truffle emulsion, frisée in red beet vinaigrette)
Rob opted for the Seitan Scaloppini (pan-seared seitan cutlets, white wine, lemon & caper sauce garlic mashed potatoes, sautéed kale)
Dessert was just divine. We shared the Lavender Coconut Crème Brulée and the Chocolate Cake (?), couldn’t find this on the menu when I checked their website.
Definitely check out Blossom if you are ever in New York. They have three locations to choose from.by Veg Writing Momma with no comments yet
I have always had a sweet tooth. My main love is chocolate, but I embrace most delightful treats. Unfortunately, as soon as the scrumptious desserts hit my lips, it’s as if they magically transferred right to my stomach and thighs; the two parts of my body that I can’t stand the most. Im currently in the midst of working to tone my legs and flatten out that little pooch we all hate so much.
I’ve recently discovered some desserts that I am able to make quickly and easily. They are raw, vegan, gluten-free, and yuuuu-mmy!!
First up are brownies. I’ve made this recipe twice already and just love it!
No Bake Brownie (vega recipe)
Personally, I prefer to stick my brownies into the fridge and eat once chilled. I find that this helps to keep the mixture together better. Since they are raw brownies, they tend to crumble easily. I also noticed that once they have been chilled, the taste is better and moister.
The first time I made these, I had just under a cup of walnuts and the consistency was a little more doughy. Even so, they taste just as yummy the second time!
Personally, I don’t even cut these, I leave them in my dish and when I get a sweet craving, I pop the lid off and take one or two bites with a spoon. It’s just enough to keep my sweet tooth satisfied. This way I’m not over-doing-it and still have some left over. It lasts a few days!
Good Girl Vegan Fudge (chocolate covered katie)
This stuff is delicious and very rich! And dare I say it, good for you! Check out some more info on coconut butter here.
Now I know you won’t believe it, but I’ve been able to snack on these yummy treats everyday, YES-EVERY DAY, since going raw and I am still loosing weight!
Try them out and until next time…..
