Early vegetarians were faced with the challenge of lassoing an apple off a tree or coaxing a corncob into a bear trap. Hunt a healthy harvest the easy way with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of vegetarian fare and drinks at Misella Delite Organic Cafe in Stony Plain.
Misella Delite, a 2011 Best of Edmonton nominee for Best Vegetarian, crafts a healthy menu of vegetarian savouries using fair-trade products and fresh, chemical-free local ingredients. Diners can tone dipping muscles with starters such as the seven-grain crispy tenders, a sextet of flavourful strips composed of beans, wheat grains, and vegetables with a sweet-chili-sauce accompaniment ($8.99). Meanwhile, the bruschetta veggie burger piggybacks jamaican jerk sauce and chees-z cashew spread on a homemade patty and is served with organic greens and house bruschetta ($8.25). Pizza, available in gluten-free versions ($10.25) or Broadway musical adaptations, arrives bearing a gooey cargo of cheese, red sauce, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes ($8.25).
While sampling these comestibles, guests can down potables such as the Very Berry smoothie with organic cherries, bananas, and a shot of vanilla ($6.75) or a fair-trade coffee ($2.75). A featured Local Food Basket farmer and vendor, Misella Delite ensures its dishes are free from GMOs, pesticides, herbicides, and parenthetical asides.
