Featured Menu Item: Vegetable Curry

This menu on the truck we are serving Vegetable Curry, a traditional Indian and Southeastern Asian dish that has intricate layers of spices. Different regions have their own take on the curry base; some use powder and spices while others use a spice paste.  Some curry dishes are spiced with leaves from a curry tree but our curry uses Kaffir lime leaves, native to tropical Asia.

Curry dishes can include fish, meat, or poultry with vegetables, but our curry is completely vegetarian. The types of vegetables included are yellow squash, zucchini, rainbow carrots, and green beans. Our curry has a coconut milk base, making it creamy and rich in flavor. The lime leaves, lemongrasss, and ginger give the sauce a citrus flavor. It is served over an Asian rice called Basmati, a Red curry and coconut sauce, and papadum, which is similar to a thin cracker or American chip that is typically made from lentil, rice, or chick pea flour. Stop by the truck this week and next week to try our take on this traditional Indian dish!


Featured Menu Item: Sweet Potato Baba Ghanoush

Baba ghanoush (pronounced bah-bah, gah-new-shh) is a classic Mediterranean dish served with pita bread. It is typically made with smashed roasted eggplant mixed with onions, tomatoes, and olive oil. But here at Green Tidings we like to change things up a bit.

For our new menu item we decided to replace the eggplant with sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes add a thicker consistency than the traditional baba ghanoush. By adding tahini to the mix, you get a nutty flavor and the fresh lemon juice creates a tart and acidic note. Our baba ghanoush, sprinkled with za’atar seasoning, is served on a freshly toasted baguette and topped with fresh mint and crunchy pistachios.

Make sure by the truck this week to get a taste of the Mediterranean with our delicious version of baba ghanoush!


Featured Menu Item: Ratatouille Vegetable Sandwich

This menu we’re featuring a French delicacy originating in the southern coastal region of Nice.  It’s a Provençal stewed vegetable dish featuring ingredients like tomatoes, onions, eggplants, bell peppers, garlic, marjoram, basil, and a mix of herbs like herbs de Provence, as featured on our Herbs de Provence Fries. Our Ratatouille is prepared the classic French style—“authentic haute cuisine”— with yellow squash, eggplant, zucchini, onions, peppers, tomatoes, and garlic. Because the Ratatouille is so thick, it can be served on bread to make a sandwich, which is how it is featured on our menu. Stop by the truck this week to try our Ratatouille Vegetable Sandwich!
