Spice, rice and everything nice

Oakville, ON, November 2, 2021 — Temperature drops but The Chopped Leaf heats things up a notch. Today, the brand announced the latest bowl to hit their menu for a limited-time. But this bowl is unlike any other. It’s not pumpkin spice, soup or chili. But it’s got spice, rice and everything nice. This is a bowl that’s got it all for fall.


As the seasons change, the brand recognizes that people’s taste and food choices also change – so it is important their menu adapts. Cooler climates mean people tend to rely on more carbohydrates, warming spices and meals that provide satiation. The focus shifts from fresh and light to hearty and filling – two components this new Harvest Medley holds true.


Chef Derek Easton, The Chopped Leaf’s Product and Development Manager, explains “the combination of spices such as cumin and coriander, complimented by mild note of chili embodies fall. These flavours complement our black bean corn salsa and rice, as these spices are components of these ingredients. The peppers and green onions add a delicious, fresh crunch to the dish.” “There’s a wonderful blend of flavours going on here – and the dollop of rich and cooling sour cream really is the cherry on top,” he adds.


The goal of this bowl was to take some of the most cherished flavours of the season and combine them with harvest vegetables that are hearty but leave you feeling good. “We’ve taken a soup and a bowl to create a combination unique to both our palates and menu. This medley is completely plant-based, but the chickpeas, lentils and rice count as a whole protein. It’s a very attractive vegetarian option, but of course adding falafel or chicken is also a delicious option,” Derek says. “It’s a dish everyone will love.”


The Chopped Leaf invites you to try their new Harvest Medley by visiting a location near you or ordering online – and not to miss out, because the season will come and go.
