Now Serving: The Pump’s Winter Seasonal Menu Starts Today
Posted Feb 07 2011 10:00am
We’ve been chopping, braising, roasting, and prepping all weekend long to get ready for today’s launch of our new seasonal menu at The Pump. We’re rolling out 3 winter vegetable selections, 2 new chef pre-sets, and 1 hearty soup (guaranteed to warm you up).
These seasonal winter offerings will be replacing the beloved spaghetti squash, Brussels sprouts and beets–all from our fall harvest menu –but we think you’ll love these in much the same way.
We announced the menu a couple of weeks ago in this winter vegetable post, but we wanted to make sure you didn’t forget. We also have prettier, more captivating photos of each of the new items to entice you even more.
So, today, when you’re grabbing lunch, be sure to ask for one of these new items, then drop a comment below and tell us what you think. If you’re not sure how to incorporate the new winter items into your favorite meal, we’ve got you covered. Chef Danny created two pre-set options–the “Half Braised” and “Moroccan 500″– that feature them in yummy combinations. See below for descriptions. We’re all about making it easier for you to eat healthier, so we hope you enjoy!
Local red cabbage is braised in a mixture of red onion, balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil. It’s slightly sweet with a soft texture. We suggest adding it to a lean braised beef plate.

Health Benefits: Red cabbage contains 6 to 10 times more vitamin C than green cabbage and is an excellent source of iron.
Florets of cauliflower are brushed lightly with olive oil, dusted with curry powder, and roasted until brown. If you were a big fan of the Brussels sprouts, then you’ll definitely like these.
Health Benefits: Cauliflower is super low in calories and contains phytonutrients that help detoxify your system.
Carrots are roasted and tossed with a Moroccan vinaigrette made with cumin, paprika, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley and garlic. With a slightly spicy kick, these carrots are perfect in a salad or plate with a scoop of hummus.
Health Benefits: Carrots are an excellent source of pro-vitamin A, antioxidant compounds, and vitamin C.
This hearty, wintry plate is comprised of lean braised beef, braised red cabbage, curry cauliflower, and steamed broccoli. The broccoli is drizzled with roasted red pepper sauce for a little heat. Get all this food for under 500 calories.
This is a not to be missed soup that’ll pair nicely as a side with any of our food. It’s a hearty tomato-based soup loaded with grill zucchini and eggplants. It’s vegetarian and dairy-free. Ask for small or large at your next visit.
