Beach-friendly Burritos

The Chef: Colleen and Joseph

The Menu: A sunny spread of crisp salad featuring romaine, cherry tomatoes, avocado, carrot, and garbanzo beans tossed in a fresh lemon vinaigrette courtesy of Colleen. Joseph complemented our sweet salad with a savory rice salad of short-grain brown rice, marinara, and seasonings, and baked Evol Tofu & Spinach burritos added some protein to our otherwise balanced meal.

The Goods: This light, refreshing lunch was the perfect fare for our al fresco lunch. Yes, summer has finally come to San Francisco, and while the rest of the country beckons for the chill of autumn air, we're ready for sunshine at the beach. We're thrilled to hear that the SF forecast predicts sunny skies through the end of the week, which also just so happens to be our last week of voting for the 2010 Veggie Awards. If you haven't submitted your choices for this year's very best vegan people, products, and places, get a move on! With a little more than one week left, the polls are close, and every vote helps your top picks push past the competition. If you've already entered your winners, encourage your friends to stuff the ballot box with their favorites as well.

Is this really a balanced meal? I'm not saying this to be snarky, I am really trying to learn more about nutrition. To me, it looks like this meal is very light on the vegetables. Lettuce has basically no nutritional value, there are only a couple shreds of carrot, and looks like 2 cherry tomatoes. Avocado is oil. Assuming there's a decent amount of spinach in that burrito, that's the only real vegetable on the whole plate.

It does look delicious.
