In the mood to try out an amazing plant-based foodie treat? If so, be sure to visit the pop-up Alpro Planquet experience at No. 57 South William Street this week – starting today, Tuesday April 24th and continuing until Monday April 30th. The Planquet will be open for business from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
A ‘planquet’ is, quite simply, any meal that puts plants first: making veggies, fruits, whole grains, pulses, legumes, nuts and seeds the star of the show. This week’s Alpro Planquet pop-up is aimed at showing Dubliners just how good a plant-based banquet can be.
The popular food and fitness author Dr Hazel Wallace (The Food Medic) has teamed up with the well-known plant-based products company Alpro for this event.
Dr. Wallace, who hails from Co. Louth, was pleased to contribute her skills and experience to ensuring this event would be a success. “I’m keen to show the world just how easy eating more plants can be, and I am thrilled to be partnering with a brand at the forefront of spreading this message,” she explained. “I am so excited to be involved in the first ever Irish Alpro Planquet and hope that by showing our guests how ultra-tasty and super simple plant-based meals can be, I can inspire them to eat more plants at home.”
The Planquet is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day from Tuesday April 24th to Monday April 30th. A refreshing range of breakfasts, lunches and dinners will be served there. From 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., you can savour overnight oats, muesli or granola, together with Alpro’s range of plant-based drinks and alternatives to yogurt. From 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., why not pop in for lunch? Crisp salads, homemade veggie burgers and nourishing curries will be on offer at this time. From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., it’s dinner time. The menu will include mushroom and tofu stroganoff served with garlic bread, yellow curry with just a hint of fennel, and spicy Mexican fajitas. Visitors will also be able to try Alpro’s new duo of ice-cold coffee drinks, Alpro Caffé as well as its creamy, light plant-based ice-cream. Who can say no to that?
The Alpro Planquet will be up and running at No. 57 South William Street from Tuesday, April 24 until Monday, April 30, 2018, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. You can check out Alpro’s website here, while more information about Dr. Wallace can be found at her site, thefoodmedic.co.uk.
