Plants Pushing Boundaries

Plants Pushing Boundaries

The plant-based world is now mainstream – some started by throwing kale or other greens into a smoothie for added health benefits and have since reimagined the make-up of their plates by moving veggies from sides to the main dish. This trend is about embracing all the brilliant color, vibrant ingredients and playful plant flavors that heighten the eating experience. Whether vegan or just curious, there’s truly something for everyone – color, texture, satiety and even sweetness – in this boundary-busting trend.

Textural Experiences

Vegetables such as hearts of palm, cactus, and lobster mushrooms bring a hearty texture to indulgent, plant- based meals.

    The key to this evolving theme is the use of natural plant derived ingredients, such as ube, for color to attract foodies to ‘eat with their eyes.
