One of the hardest parts of being a vegetarian is explaining to the family that flamingo tongues at the Saturnalia banquet still count as meat. Today’s Groupon serves up healthy vegan and vegetarian fare for eaters of all persuasions: for $5, you get $12 worth of wraps, soups, sandwiches, and more at Red Pepper Deli, located in Northville.
Featuring a menu overflowing with veggies, nuts, fruits, and seeds, Red Pepper Deli serves raw, vegan bites for the health-conscious snacker. Every dish is prepared fresh, including the Greenwich, a sandwich with seed cheese, spinach, cucumber, and avocado ($7). Vegan soups are offered in the form of regenerative tonics, with kale, celery, spinach, and carrots comprising the potassium tonic ($5.50/$9), reviving red blood cells that were lazily watching reruns of MASH. More familiar veggie fare includes several crunchy salads, such as the caprese salad and its emerald hues of spinach and basil with macadamia mozzarella ($8). Wash down a nutritious snack with a mineral-rich Mean and Green shake, a chilled potion of kale, dandelion, spinach, pear, bananas, and other nourishing, body-bettering ingredients ($6/$10).
Red Pepper Deli encourages the consumption of raw foods because of the nutrient and enzyme-rich content, which may help humans thwart potential diseases, improve digestion, and avoid microwaves harboring the ghosts of smaller and more evil microwaves. Rejuvenate your health and revive your gray-tinted mental state within Red Pepper Deli's vibrant, vegetable-colored environment.

Red Pepper Deli
Carolyn Simon’s allergies and health issues first led her to discover the health benefits of a raw, vegan diet, inspiring her to use her more than three decades of restaurant experience to open Red Pepper Deli. While the menu includes hot soups, teas, and coffee, the focus is on healthy, raw recipes crafted from fresh fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts that are never heated above 118 degrees––a practice that helps each ingredient retain its vital nutrients and wrinkle-free complexion. The lack of Fahrenheit is made up for with flavor, as Carolyn and her staff prepare most everything on the menu from scratch, from the mediterranean pizza made with cashew cheese, red pepper, green olives, and seed bread, down to the shop’s salad dressings and ketchup.
