Fall in Love With Rootastes’ Fall Menu

There may be a chill in the air here in New England, but our fall menu takes inspiration from the sunshine of the Mediterranean!

Close your eyes- you are now in Santorini, Greece. The salty breeze of the Mediterranean Sea is brushing along your hair. The breeze adds coolness to the sunny day, like a nice autumn evening. You are engulfed by the vibrant colors of azure, turquoise, bright white, creams, and roses as the sun sets on the picture perfect hillside of Santorini. A fresh, savory fragrance shifts your attention to a luscious spread of char grilled kabobs, fresh oregano, sage and olives, lemon citrusy notes, and fresh baked pita.

Okay, so we can’t send you to Greece, but our fall menu can certainly transport your senses to the Mediterranean even if only for your lunch hour. While last year’s menu was inspired by traditional fall flavors of maple, apples, and cinnamon, this year we’re focusing on global flavors, culture, and health.

Mediterranean food, like New England fall fare, is oriented around warming ingredients and seasonings. We incorporated sage, tarragon, and roasted root vegetables along with warm hummus, tomatoes, and goat and feta cheeses to create dishes that will deliver everything you want from a savory fall meal. By featuring Mediterranean cuisine, we’re also excited to introduce our new partnership with Samira’s Homemade hummus and dips!

We’re sure you’ll enjoy everything we’ve cooked up and fall in love with our fall menu. It’s only fitting that the Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease! Not to mention, everything on our fall menu is gluten-free.

We can’t wait for you to try our Chicken Kaparo served with garlic oil and a lemon caper sauce, or our Sicilian Pesce with orange and crispy garlic. We also have a Balkan Beef for red meat fans that’s drizzled with white gravy, as well as the oregano and citrus seasoned Tofu Thalia for vegans and vegetarians.

Speaking of which, our Heart of the Roots sides are 80% vegan and delicious. We infused the Mediterranean’s favorite vegetables- and chickpeas!- into our Horiatiki Garden salad and zucchini and red and sweet potatoes star in Tostato Zuchinni and Mega Herb Roots, respectively.

And no dish is fully Mediterranean without a sauce! Choose from Basil Balsamic Vinaigrette, our Homemade Greek Vinaigrette, traditional yogurt-based Tzatziki, or Sweet Chili.

Summer may be winding down, but we’re making fall all about the sunshine and seashore that inspires warming Mediterranean meals.
