FRESH new menu items at Chef Good
There are a few new dishes we’d love you to meet at Chef Good. We’re talking breakfast, lunch and healthy sweets.
Dukkah spiced poached eggs, spinach and Meredith goats feta on six-grain toast
Dukkah is an Egyptian mix of delicious spices and crushed nuts and goes oh-so-perfectly with a poachie. Served with spinach and creamy Meredith goats feta on a piece of six-grain toast, this is a scrumptious, balanced and hearty way to start your day.
Eggs are a top source of protein, especially if you follow a vegetarian or flexitarian lifestyle. Just two eggs will satisfy 25% of your required daily intake of protein and also includes all nine essential amino acids.
Cocoa and black plum porridge
There is nothing quite like warm, nourishing porridge on a chilly Melbourne morning. We’ve taken the traditional oat porridge up a notch by spiking it with cocoa and black plums. While it may taste uber indulgent, this breakfast is as healthy as it is delectable.
Cocoa is one of the most well-known sources of antioxidants known as flavonoids. These phytonutrients may help with cardiovascular health and also reduce the chances of cancer by preventing free-radical damage. It’s not just cocoa that contains flavonoids either, black plums also pack an antioxidant punch.
Harissa spiced chicken and spinach wrap
Harissa is a Maghrebi paste made from mostly roasted red peppers. It’s hot, spicy and the perfect way to add some excitement to chicken. Harissa can include a range of different chillies, spices and herbs – at Chef Good we make it fresh!
Chilli is an amazing food to include in your diet, especially in the winter months. Did you know chillies contain up to seven times the vitamin C of oranges? Naturally, we can’t eat the same amount of chillies as we do oranges, but this spicy addition will help you fight off the dreaded winter cold.
Sweet potato fritters with smoky pinto beans
A crispy sweet potato fritter topped with a smoky pinto bean concoction, made fresh in the Chef Good kitchen – it might just be the perfect winter meal!
Sweet potato is a complex carbohydrate, meaning it’s a low GI food – no blood sugar spike here. It also means that it’s a satisfying food, you won’t be craving more food shortly after this meal. The addition of pinto beans also helps with satisfying your hunger, protein keeps you fuller for longer.
Cherry ripe chocolate slice
Sweet red cherries, coconut and chocolate. It’s a match made in dessert heaven and we’ve made sure it’s also good for you. We’ve already told you the antioxidant benefits of cocoa, all that’s left to do is for you to pop this slice on next week’s menu!
