round up: two food favorites collide & a local indiegogo you have to support

Toro sweetgreen boston collab salad bowl

Two of my favorite things just collided and the results are so delicious. Local favorite Boston restaurant, Toro‘s chef Ken Oringer has partnered with sweetgreen to bring Boston “The Toro Bowl” through the end of May. I tried it this past weekend at MarketStreet and I honestly couldn’t hold off taking pix (explaining the stock imagery above!) before I dove in. The vegetarian-friendly recipe is made with quinoa, hot chickpeas, kale (I swapped for spinach), roasted potatoes, roasted corn + tomatoes + jalapenos, local radishes, basil, feta (I swapped for tofu), lemon squeeze, Sweetgreen hot sauce and charred jalapeno yogurt dressing. The portion is so filling you might even have leftovers, if you can stop yourself from eating it!
