Celebrate National Ceviche Day at Border Grill: 6/28/2016 OR Make It at Home with This Recipe!!

I seem to be running out of room for all these holidays — or national/regional days– of these trends but this is one trend or “holiday” that you don’t want to miss if you are a foodie!! This one gets even better if you are vegetarian, vegan or gone paleo, because Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken have created an incredible recipe for ceviche with a vegan twist! Plus read on for the details on what’s happening in the 2 Border Grill Restaurants here in So. California! These fabulous chefs have not only this new recipe but are celebrating National Ceviche Day in their restaurants.

Leave it to Susan & Mary Sue to cure that longing for a summer ceviche fix. Fresh from the Border Grill recipe kitchen – and just in time for National Ceviche Day on June 28 – the Too Hot Tamales present their vegan-friendly Veggie Veracruzano Ceviche.

Baja Ceviche

Far from traditional, this colorful version hailing from Mexico’s Gulf coast takes 10 vegetables for a well-seasoned citrus spin. The starter will be available at both Los Angeles Border Grill locations (Santa Monica & Downtown LA) for $12 on Tuesday, June 28, along with the restaurant’s celebrated Baja and Peruvian variations.

Milliken and Feniger shared their inspiration:

“One of the best things about ceviche is its versatility,” said Feniger. “The ingredients, flavors and textures can all change drastically, but every time you order it you’re guaranteed to get a taste bud explosion. At Border Grill, we like to put our own unique spin on ceviche, but we wanted to take it another step further for National Ceviche Day.”

“It took a bit of concocting, but we’re proud to say this is one of our favorite ceviche offerings yet,” said Milliken. “The Vegetable Veracruzano Ceviche is going to pack all of the flavor-punch that traditional ceviche enthusiasts have come to expect from us, but we’re also opening up the world of ceviche to people with more specific dietary needs. If you’re vegan or gluten-free, you’re going to love this just as much as anyone else.”
