CHICAGO (PRWEB) April 06, 2020
lil’gourmets was created with the goal of cultivating curiosity among young eaters by providing nourishing, organic, veggie-focused meals that will help them fall in love with vegetables and diverse, flavorful foods for life. This innovative brand was founded by two former Kraft Food executives and first-time moms. The fresh, sophisticated, and globally-inspired recipes are not just for lil’ones but for anyone who wants a ready-made, nutritious, delicious meal or snack.
The brand strives to aid their community during this unprecedented time in the world. For lil’gourmets it is particularly important that children have access to fresh and nutritious food. It is a core value for the company and has driven them to donate 2,000 veggie meals to the Greater Chicago Food Depository in March. They have since committed to donate a minimum of 1,000 veggie meals in April.
“In this time of uncertainty, we want to continue to support parents who want to feed their children fresh, healthy options, while also following the social distancing rules to protect the country as a whole,” says Shibani Baluja, Founder and CEO. “That’s why we are so grateful that our dedicated and experienced partners allow us to continue to deliver our fresh recipes both to our retail partners and directly to your door. In addition, ensuring access to nutritious food, particularly for children, is near and dear to our hearts so we have stepped up our community response during this crisis.”

With their delicious, culturally-inspired spice blends, these two new meal varieties are the first of their kind to be offered with young eaters in mind. Read more about the unique recipes below.
-New! Pumpkin Navy Bean Shawarma: Our one-of a-kind Shawarma recipe features a great protein base of navy beans that is combined with a creamy blend of pumpkin, spinach and sweet potatoes, plus extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, tamarind, and a splash of lemon. A delicious mix of seven spices: paprika, allspice, onion, garlic, turmeric, cumin, and cinnamon, bring complex layers of flavor into each bite.
-New! Spanish Corn & Bean Gazpacho: The Gazpacho starts with delicious and creamy sweet corn and is rounded out with a generous helping of navy beans and ripe pineapple. Tomatoes, a splash of lime juice, extra virgin olive oil, tamarind, and a complex and flavorful blend of mild ancho chili powder, onion, garlic, oregano, and marjoram come together to create its unique and appealing flavor. And like any true gazpacho, serving this recipe cold allows the fresh, authentic taste of each ingredient to really shine.
