It is that time of year when we move away from consuming gelato’s, and cold smoothies.  Instead, we opt for warm foods, and soups that help to cut down the brisk fall wind, and changing season.  One such soup that needs recognizing is the Roast Carrot Soup from Boxwood Cafe.  It is a deliciously smooth soup and very good for you.  This pureed carrot soup has warming spices added to it: cumin, coriander, a little chipotles powder, and to finish off, a pinch or so of Thyme and Oregano. There is a dollop of a White Gold Herbed Ricotta on top of the soup, very complimentary.  Priced at $8.00, this is a great lunch or lighter dinner option.

Boxwood Cafe's Ocean-wise Trout, and Seasonal Vegetable Dishes

The Boxwood Café was a great choice for tasty local seasonal and sustainable food dishes. I had the pleasure of dining with my parents, a rare occasion when you get older, it seems. I decided to try the Ocean Wise Steelhead Trout, priced at $19.00, a delicious dinner. Importantly, this café sources their Trout from Vancouver Island, BC. The Trout was pan-seared to perfection, topped with pesto sauce, and placed on top of Blackyard Chive Gnudi, and Roserridge Farm Brussels Sprouts. I enjoyed how the Brussels sprouts were not over cooked; they were just right. The potato Gnudi ‘s were delightful, and light.

Being a health-focused foodie, I’m always curious what ingredients go into making my meal I’m about to eat; whether I’m dining in, or when I’m dining out. I’m a curious type of person, who always wants to know the ‘why’ and not just the ‘what’… Restaurants practicing environmental stewardship while offering high quality dishes are my favourite dining-out places.
