Seed To Sprout – Avon By The Sea, New Jersey

5/31/16

Since we have heard nothing but positive things about this place, we found it the most suitable time to visit when our vegan friend was in town. The vibe at Seed to Sprout was very chill and cozy. Everything arrived at our table in a timely fashion. First, we started with the Green Goodness Juice and the Hot Shot. Both were refreshing (and spicy!)! For entrees, we ordered the Bacon Cheddar Melt, the Mexican Omelette, the Chilaquiles, and the Banana Bacon Pancakes. Everything was fantastic! It really felt like I was eating very unique flavor profiles, which is hard to do when you’re always eating foods of various ethnicities! I tasted the smoky flavor of bacon in the cheddar melt and the cashew cheddar really hit the spot on the Mexican dishes. The kale salad that accompanied most of these plates was phenomenal! We actually tried to make this at home a few days later and nothing compares to their receipe.

The ideas for this menu were very well thought out to appease anyone who sits down to brunch; only only vegans. However, our vegan friend was so thoroughly impressed that she returned to take some snacks to go on her last day here. This place is definitely five star quality and we will be back soon!

The second and third visits were not because our vegan friend was in town, rather because we loved it so much and we enjoy supporting local businesses. Plus, we work out with Cara, a co-owner, and she is awesome.

The raw vegan margherita pizza is to die for. The crust is made out of sunflower flax and the “cheese” is cashew cream. The fresh basil, tomatoes, and other spices really come together so well. It almost tastes like regular pizza!

I’ll admit, we were skeptical about trying the collard wrap because it looked bland. We tried it anyway and were pleasantly surprised! Shredded carrots, tomato, red cabbage, sprouts, and cashew cream were enclosed within a big collard green leaf. Not only did it taste delicious, but it was beautiful, as well.

The pink lady smoothie [featured in the photo above] was a great choice. It tasted so sweet without any added sugars. It had banana, strawberry, mango, and coconut yogurt in it.

We can’t wait to try the rest of the menu!!
