Get slow food, fast at Slow Bean

Only four months old, Slow Bean Restaurant is one of the few community-oriented, zero waste places in town that serves healthy, affordable food.

Housed at the funky Nines Culture Club on 99 West Pender across from a big box theatre and fast food giants, Slow Bean offers simple vegan/vegetarian daily specials and brunch on the weekends.

Customers can get a large bowl of hearty soup with spiced rice and a slice of house made bread for $5.

I picked the wrong day for the Coconut Corn Chowder Protest special but the zucchini loaf and flax bread teaser samples have set me up to return when Chowder is back.

Brunch includes veggie breakfast sammies on flax bread with yam and sweet potato-side or vegan french toast stuffedslow bean with fruit and veggie sausages.

Slow Bean uses organic vegetables and spices as much as possible. The fresh breads are prepared with conventional products to keep the prices low, but they are healthier than the store bought kind.

If you’d like to rent the space for community art events, exhibitions or presentations, talk to Mairin Cooley via facebook or call 604.537.3549.

Coming up next week

What is a food dehydrator and why are dried foods becoming more popular? I wade into the basics of food drying and share my research with you.

As always, if there’s something you’re burning to know more about, but don’t have time to get into it, send me a note and I’ll help if I can.
