Last night a DJ saved my life. Blossom Du Jour (BDJ), that is. I was hungry, frantically rushing to find a subway line that was running, and not sure where to grab a quick vegan bite in the area, when “out of the clear blue sky” the new Blossom Du Jour Chelsea suddenly appeared. (I swear it wasn’t there the last time I looked!)
Of course, I could have dashed across the street to Burritoville for a non-organic vegetarian burrito, but coming face-to-face with a member of the healthy and environmentally-conscious Blossom Restaurant brand, immediately changed the game for me. At least I could count on them to deliver primarily organic, vegan eats–with some gluten free options.
“Since 2005, Blossom Restaurant has been committed to providing
delicious, healthy, cruelty free cuisine. At Blossom Du Jour, we are
committed to making a positive impact on the fast food industry
by offering quickly-prepared food and beverage choices which are both
healthy and environmentally conscious.”
Have it Your Way: Pre-Packaged or Made While You Wait
Since I was short on time, I quickly perused the racks of salads, wraps, sandwiches and juices and grabbed what appealed:
Hummus Cucumber Wrap
(For immediate eating!)
I happily downed this delicious blend of slow whipped hummus, english cucumber, carrots and field greens in a spinach tortilla.
Smokey Avocado Wrap (a.k.a. Smokacado)
I thoroughly enjoyed the distinct flavor and texture of creamy avocado, smoked tempeh, tomato, lettuce, chipotle aioli in a spinach tortilla.
Chickpea Quinoa Salad
Quinoa, chick peas, cranberries, parsley, field greens, with a tahini dressing
Field of Greens Juice
“Blossom is first and foremost about animal caring.
We also feel that eating an organic vegan diet encourages
a healthy conscious lifestyle.”
