Meet the ūüĆé Earth Day Box

Earth Day is approaching and your neighborhood planet-saving chickpea-frying friends are here with an Earth Day Challenge and an Earth Day Box! Chris, did you say Nachos on the menu?!!

The Atlantic reported this month that the single biggest change you can make to your diet to help mitigate climate change is to eat less meat. 

And every year more and more people are¬†experimenting with¬†vegan food. Going vegan, or even incorporating a few vegan meals into your week…that¬†decision used to be¬†such a painful one, but every year it¬†becomes¬†easier and more delicious and more fun.

Case in point: our Vegan Box, which Chris just re-developed in honor of the 51st anniversary of Earth Day. Full of New England favorites, Clover classics and totally new recipes. I see you, apple mousse.

Use the box to participate in our Earth Day Challenge, gift it to the skeptical carnivore or budding vegan chef in your life, or break it up for a week of solo dining so you can skip a trip to the grocery store.

What’s on the menu?

ūüĆ鬆Breakfast¬†starts¬†with our¬†Maine Blueberry Muffins that you scoop and bake. Enjoy them with creamy Overnight Oats soaked in our house-made Banana Macadamia Nut Milk and¬†topped with Peanut Butter.

ūüĆ鬆For¬†Lunch¬†there’s Chickpea Fritter Sandwiches (we weren’t trying to trick you, but¬†did you know Clover’s most popular sandwich has been vegan this whole time?!)¬†and Beluga Lentil Salad¬†(did you know lentils improve the soil instead of depleting it? you¬†can read all about that in a¬†book about our lentil farmer).

ūüĆ鬆For a¬†Bonus Meal/After-School Snack¬†we’re¬†giving you all the fixings for Moroccan-inspired nachos with Impossible¬†kofta crumbles, pumpkin seeds,¬†chickpeas, and a creamy lemon-turmeric drizzle.

ūüĆ鬆For¬†Dinner¬†there’s Irish style “bangers and mash” ‚ÄĒ potato and kale colcannon (think Irish mashed¬†potatoes)¬†with Beyond meat sausages and Chris’s magical onion gravy, with a hearty vegetable stew on¬†the side.

ūüĆ鬆For¬†Dessert¬†Chris made pistachio halva¬†and a chocolate-coconut mousse with our own apple compote.¬†

How do I participate in the Earth Day Challenge?

Give¬†vegan eating a try for one whole day on Earth Day, 4/22.It doesn’t matter whether you use our box, eat from another delicious restaurant in town, or make your own food. Document your day and post your meals¬†using:¬†#CloverEarthDayChallenge,¬†#KaleToAction and¬†tag¬†@cloverfoodlab¬†on Instagram or Twitter.

Anything posted before midnight on 4/22 will be entered in a random drawing to win a Clover meal box of your choice!

When can I order an Earth Day Box?

There are only 300 slots available for delivery/pickup on the Tuesday before Earth Day. These boxes have been selling out fast so¬†take a moment to book one right now¬†¬†if you’d¬†like one¬†in time! If you miss out this time around – no worries –¬†our new meal box will continue to be available¬†on our menu after¬†Earth Day as our new and improved Vegan Box.

Let’s do this!

If a bunch of us¬†make small changes in our diet each day we can have a great¬†impact on the planet and maybe even inspire those around us. We’d love to hear what comes out of this for you!

Every year, just after Valentine’s Day, we start getting the same question in from customers: Will there be a Passover Box this year? Sometimes the pleas are more direct, sometimes more colorful. The glories of the vegetarian Chopped Liver are a common theme. This year, Sarah, an NYC-based friend of mine said she’s spent so much time thinking about the emails describing last year’s box that she’s DRIVING UP TO BOSTON to claim one!

We have a new sandwich out everywhere today. It’s a take on a Buffalo Chicken sandwich. We use celery root, aka celeriac, this nobbly, gnarled joy of a winter vegetable. We cut it into planks, batter it with panko, and fry it. We’re getting ours from Norwich Meadows Farm, a farm in NY state that’s known for creating really flavorful organic veggies using a cool irrigation system.¬†

Chances are you’ve tried the new Clover Bowls. We’ve been running them since the Spring. After a few tweaks, we landed on a roster we love: the Mediterranean Bowl, the Verde Rice and Bean Bowl, and a Rotating Seasonal Bowl. The bowls have transformed our menu – Josh, a Kendall customer, recently wrote to us, “The beet poke bowl is the best new item I‚Äôve tried at Clover in years. I love the freshness and bite of the mix of flavors.” We’ve also heard some very good suggestions about how to make them even better…

New Year’s Eve is no time to be buried in the kitchen, so we pack our NYE Box with Clover fan favorites that come together fast and encourage a night of Finger-Food Feasting. Can you think of anything better than digging into bubbling hot Brussels Sprout Cheese dip on a freezing cold Boston night? Or scooping up our bright nutty Romesco sauce as the clock ticks to midnight?  And our breakthrough Carrot Lox (probably the best thing to come out of our food dev in 2023) will have you resolving to spare more salmon in the year ahead.

What would we serve if we had all of you over for Christmas dinner? This (epic) box, available only for Christmas, is an homage to the holiday traditions of our Clover staff.

This box is designed to feed you and keep you properly festive throughout a week with different meals/snacks, and can also be laid out all together on a holiday table as one big feast.

These sweet potato latkes date back to early days on the Clover food truck. They’re so yummy and the sweet potatoes lend them such a fun golden color. They’re probably the most popular item in our Hanukkah Meal Box, which you can get delivered on December 7th. Inside the box you’ll find:¬†

I‚Äôm writing to share some news: we‚Äôve decided to permanently close CloverROW, our outpost in the Assembly Row neighborhood of Somerville. The closure of this restaurant is part of the whole company‚Äôs focus on reaching financial sustainability and positioning us for future growth. These decisions are really hard, but they‚Äôre necessary steps for us to simplify Clover. And, happily, all the amazing staff at CloverROW, including the manager Joe, will be able to move into other Clover restaurants. The math is straightforward…
