Food Is Love
It’s a global way to bring us closer to the ones we love
Tech has brought the global community closer, but it’s also widened the space between us. While it allows us to easily connect with people and cultures across the world, it makes us move through life faster and communicate more briefly with those nearby. Time shared with loved ones is often quick texts or fleeting moments between work and more work.
At Elephant Plate, we’re strong believers in the power of superfoods to balance the push and pull of tech and help bring equilibrium back to our lives and bodies. Food is powerful because we all understand it. It’s an essential need common to all humankind. Across time, countries, cultures and communities, it’s been a universal way to celebrate, build community and spend time as a family. And, taking the time to prepare nourishment for others is a way to show respect and, most importantly, love for those in our lives.
Food is powerful because we all understand it.
Elephant Plate’s global menu draws upon our connected global community to connect us more closely with those nearest to us. Here are some our customers have fallen in love with:
Stir It Up
Rainbow Glass Noodle Japchae is a gluten-free, Korean dish. The name is a combination of two words: Jap (mix) + chae (vegetables) = mixed vegetables. Based on the five elements or phases of East Asian cosmology, many Korean foods feature five colors. Our Japchae has four: green (green onion and kale), red (peppers), white (noodles) and black (shiitake and wood ear mushrooms). Because our recipe is vegan and made without eggs, there’s no yellow. But, there is a big serving of antioxidants and vitamins to fuel your day.
The Spice of Life
From Ethiopia comes Manna Misr Wot, a vegan stew that takes the humble red lentil to a whole new level. It gets its warming, savory taste from berbere, an Ethiopian spice blend of red chilis, cumin, cinnamon, garlic and other spices. Niter Kibbeh, an Ethiopian clarified herbed butter (we make ours using sunflower oil) balances the dish. The result is a protein powerhouse that balances your system.
All Together Now
Our Korean Vegan Tacos blend the beloved Mexican taco with two Korean ingredients. Gochugaru is the name given to the flakes of a moderately hot sun-dried red chili pepper that is thought to have been used in Korean cooking since the 16th century. Gochujang is a thick, sticky paste, also made from red chili peppers, that is used in dipping sauces and marinades. Topped with watermelon radishes, carrots, cilantro, jalapeno and lemon, each bite is a light, satisfying taste of two cultures.
