Slow Food UW Cafe Lunch – 1/30

Despite blizard-like conditions, today was the spring semester grand opening of Slow Food UW Cafe. I’m thankful the students are back on campus so I can resume my weekly routine of Wednesday lunches. And I’d trek through any blizzard for Slow Food UW Cafe Lunch.

My picks from this week’s menu included: Gruyere, Honey Dijon with Caramelized Dates and Mustard Greens on Seeded Olive Oil Bread; Roasted Root Veggies with Cinnamon and Rosemary; White Bean, Chorizo and Kale Soup; and a Chocolate Sweet Potato Brownie. All for less than $10.

Everything was fantastic. I particularly loved the side of roasted root veggies with cinnamon and rosemary (the subtle flavor of cinnamon was a great addition), and the vegetarian sandwich—which both my friend Julie and I agreed was so simple, fresh and flavorful. As a whole, I’d say it ranked among my all-time favorite cafe lunches. And I’m definitely going to try to recreate the root veggies side.
