National Soup Month = Double Rewards for Frequent Diners!
January is National Soup Month, which is certainly reason enough to celebrate at Harrison’s! As always, we will be serving up six delicious, house-made soups daily. In January, you can count on finding Vegetarian Vegetable Bean, Ethiopian-Inspired Lentil, and of course Butternut Squash Bisque. The other three soups change daily, and often include such favorites as Smoked Tomato Bisque, Baked Potato, Cream of Mushroom, Corn Chowder, or Beef Barley. It’s always a surprise!
For our Frequent Diners: Every time you dine in or carry out at Harrison’s from now through Wednesday, January 27th, you may choose to receive either TWO free cups of soup OR double Frequent Diner Points! Just tell your server which reward you prefer, and we will take care of the rest.
Not a member of our Frequent Diner program? All you need to do is sign up and the double rewards are immediately in effect.
We look forward to seeing you double-time this January!
January Features: Healthy Resolutions Menu
Filled with well-seasoned lean proteins and plenty of deliciously prepared vegetables, our Healthy Resolutions menu highlights some of our favorite past and present menu combinations that take their flavors, not from butter, starches and loads of salt, but from fresh herbs, spices, fruits and nuts, citrus and other healthier flavor makers. The best part is, many of these menu items are available during the rest of the year to help make keeping your resolution beyond January even easier.
Some highlights from this menu: Our aromatic, slightly spicy Ethiopian-Inspired Lentil soup with green beans, spinach and 11 different spices has been a huge favorite in the past and some even say it’s a rival to our Butternut Squash Bisque! Our Spinach & Apple Salad with Spice-Rubbed Ahi Tuna combines lean, flavorful protein with healthy spinach and loads of healthy-hitting toppings, such as apples, golden raisins, chickpeas, and pumpkin seeds. And our Ginger Lime Scallops combine high-protein, low-fat grilled scallops with a delicious and high-flavor vinaigrette made from fresh lime and local baby ginger. Who says healthy food can’t taste good?
Our Healthy Resolutions features will be available in addition to our Lunch and Dinner menus through Wednesday, January 27. Starters and Entrée Salads will be available all day, and Entrees will be available daily after 4:30pm. Enjoy delicious meals out and keep your resolutions this year!
The Lucky Lentil
Lentils have been touted as a super food for a while now, and it’s no wonder! They are high in protein and fiber, as well as iron, folate, potassium, magnesium, and scads of antioxidants. Here are some nutritional and other fun facts about this lovely little legume.
- Gram for Gram, lentils pack more protein than beef.
- One cup of lentils has over twice as much fiber as one cup of bran flakes.
- For about the same amount of calories, one cup of lentils has over twice the amount of protein and dietary fiber than quinoa.
Now for some fun non-nutritional facts...
- Although lentils originated in Asia, Canada is the world’s leading exporter of lentils.
- Lentils have been found in Egyptian tombs. In ancient Egyptian culture, lentils were thought to enlighten the minds of children, making them happier and more studious.
- The word “lens” (as in “optical lens”) was derived from the Latin word for lentil and was inspired by the appearance of the split lentil.
- For hardcore lentil lovers, a National Lentil Festival takes place every August in Pullman, Washington.
- And one more reason to eat lentils this month: in many cultures they are traditionally eaten at the beginning of the New Year as good luck. Their small seed-like appearance is reminiscent of coins, and eating them keeps financial rewards in mind. Italy, Germany, and Brazil all have their own lentil-based, New Year meal!
Now that you’ve been inspired by this lucky lentil, you can reap the benefits of it in our Ethiopian-Inspired Lentil soup this month, available for dine in or carry out this month!
