What’s a “Healthy Harvest”?

Posted on Dec. 10, 2009 by in Bagels

If Uncommon Grounds were to launch a Frequently Asked Questions section, one of the first questions to be answered would beWhat is a Healthy Harvest?”

When developing our menu many years ago, we tried to steer clear of kitsch-y sandwich names. While some restaurants are good at coming up with creative names for their food offerings, we felt that our angle should be to allow our customers to build their own version of what a sandwich should be.

That said, the “Healthy Harvest” is one sandwich (vegetarian) that we put together and named for the menu that stands alone in its excellence, yet can be modified for maximum food pleasure. We tried to start at the top so that you could only make it better!

Ordering a “Healthy Harvest” at either Uncommon Grounds location will get you lettuce, green peppers, sprouts, cucumbers, red onion and tomatoes on your choice of bagel. Your server should ask you what kind of dressing you’d like along with asking you if you’d like to add anything to it. As pictured above, a delightful add-on is cheese. This particular specimen above is sporting a cheddar cheese top.

Some other ideas for your Healthy Harvest are cream cheese, hummus, roasted red peppers, jalapeños or even bacon (which we call the UN-Healthy Harvest *wink*, *wink*).

Do you have any Healthy Harvest modifications that you like? Let us know in the comments!

    Okay, it sounds good (if a little goody goody) as is but with bacon? Oh yeah.

    The best bagel sandwich ever is your pesto bagel toasted with hummus and tomatoes. OMG…*dies*

    Just wondering if there was any method to the way you made your sandwich? It seems to me like the flat stuff (tomatoes and lettuce) should be on the bottom of the bagel. But what do I know?!

      At our stores, each sandwich is its own beast. Some folks lettuce on the bottom, some folks lettuce on the top! Thanks for sharing your ideas!
