Turning up the Beet in 2020!

If you’ve been following along for any amount of time, you know how pumped up I get about new recipes and the opportunity to share these seasonal dishes with all of you. And since it’s a new year, that means it’s time to share some new First Watch seasonal creations!

We’ve got three brand new dishes and a fresh option from the juice bar, and these additions have a healthier tilt to them for those of us trying to make some adjustments to our eating habits in 2020. The cool thing about eating at First Watch is that healthy doesn’t have to mean boring and flavorless. Hallelujah!

The dish I’m most excited about on this season’s menu is definitely our Brilliant Beet Toast. When I was growing up, I dreaded having to eat beets – they were so oily, mushy and gross – ew. So, I’ve made it my mission to make them appealing and downright tasty, and not only that, they’ve got health benefits for days. For one, they’ve got so many nutrients in just a few calories, and they can help regulate blood pressure, fight inflammation and improve digestive health, just to name a few. I can’t wait for you to check out this recipe!

Brilliant Beet Toast is made using our whole grain artisan toast topped with house-made beet hummus, fresh avocado, house-pickled onions, diced red beets, lemon dressed arugula and herbed Goat cheese, and we serve it with two cage-free basted eggs (or, however you like your eggs cooked is good with us!). It’s a vegetarian dish, and if you’re one of our gluten-free diners, you’re always welcome to sub the whole grain artisan toast for our Udi’s gluten-free toast – for free!

You can try this great new dish at a First Watch near you through March 15, alongside our seasonal Vanilla Chai Latte Pancakes, Baja Chicken Burrito Bowl and our Blue Booster juice. Check out the rest of those new menu items here!

Here’s to a joyful 2020!
