Cafe Spice is building on its 19-year relationship with Whole Foods Market by launching three vegetarian and plant-based heat-and-eat meals in Ontario, Canada. Originally created when Cafe Spice was launched, these three meals are now part of the company’s core collection and have done extremely well in US markets.
As the push for more plant-based and vegetarian items increases, Cafe Spice feels it’s appropriate to share the context of their meals and the dietary restrictions they’re adjusting to. Cafe Spice’s meals are a push towards global cuisine, but the company remains Indian at its core. Indian food is inherently vegetarian and plant-based, focusing on beans, grains, and vegetables. It’s important to remind customers that plant-based and vegetarian options can be creative and satisfying combinations of natural, plant-based ingredients. Cafe Spice allows its customers to experience authentic meals. No travel required.
It’s great news to know that the following dishes are now available at Whole Foods Market stores in Ontario, Canada:
Chana Masala: chickpeas are slowly cooked in a sweet and fragrant caramelized onion sauce, and are accompanied by lemon basmati rice with mustard seeds and lentils
Vegetable Korma: Vibrant vegetables are braised with spices in a light cream of tomato sauce and served with basmati rice infused with saffron, cardamom and bay leaves
Saag Paneer: A spicy spinach sauce is topped with Indian-style farmhouse cheese cubes and comes with basmati rice infused with saffron, cardamom and bay leaves
Over the years, Cafe Spice’s award-winning and internationally acclaimed Culinary Director, Chef Hari Nayak, worked to develop an exclusive range of international dishes that harnessed the true essence of authentic cuisines. Made with fresh, authentic ingredients, on-the-go meals offer easy access to an upscale epicurean experience. Available in a microwave-safe, BPA-free 16-ounce package, each meal is prepared fresh and can be found in the deli and prepared foods section of the grocery store.
