On-trend ethnic flavors add interest and up the craveability factor of plant-based superfood bowls, also known as Buddha or grain bowls: popular fiber- and protein-packed dishes that are healthy, hearty and endlessly Instagrammable.

Wholesome, filling and fit for a god, this Mediterranean take on a Buddha bowl tops Greek-dressing-infused quinoa with za’atar-spiced Gardein® Meatless Meatballs, feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, kalamata olives, red onion and stuffed grape leaves. Portable grain bowls like this are a welcome menu item for take-out and delivery customers who want a lighter option. Watch the video to see how to build it!

A Slice of Mardi Gras



People with dietary restrictions deserve more than “OK.” Stand out from the competition by being thoughtful about your gluten-free offerings, creating dishes that are just as exciting, unique and delicious as the rest of your menu.

This Louisiana-style flavor bomb tops Udi’s® 12” Pizza Crust with smoked barbeque sauce, a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese, gluten-free andouille sausage, Cajun shrimp and bell peppers. Finish it off with fried okra and a drizzle of creole mustard. Pizza is a perennially popular delivery and take-out item (consumer spending on pizza delivery in the U.S. reached roughly $11 billion in 2019), and this pie gives customers the chance to explore beyond the standard cheese or pepperoni. Watch the video to see how to build it!
