Skinny Pizza and Vegan Cheese Is A Thing & Here is How Its Made

Located just opposite the locality's beloved Bombay Salad Co (that, according to me, can really give Delhi's Salad Days a run for their money), the Farmers' Café is making something called Skinny Pizza and Vegan cheese. I know, you're wondering what that is. We did, too. So, we dug a little deeper into the food preparation at this cosy little place that is making vegan look and sound cooler than we imagined. It can be visited alone—if you're on a food-binge mission; but with a diet plan—or with friends and family—to share the joy of healthy and delicious food with loved ones.

What Is Skinny Pizza & Vegan Cheese?

Skinny Pizza is the healthier way to enjoying pizza, to put it simply. It's made with Rajgira dough at Farmers' Café and is topped with pink beetroot-flavoured hummus. Add to that some vegan cheese—this is basically cheese that is made with a combination of mozzarella and parmesan that is specially prepared at the café using skimmed milk.

So, What's So Great About Farmers' Café?

It's different from most vegan cafés in one very important sense that it incorporates a lot of Indian superfoods on its menu; something that most other outlets miss out on because they're so busy westernizing the palate with ingredients and elements like flaxseeds and avocado, and the likes. Not that Farmers' Café doesn't serve these up; just that it also has a variety of Indian superfoods to explore.

We're talking about the likes of turmeric, coconut milk, rajgira and dates, to name a few. They don't use sugar or preservatives and use natural sweeteners like jaggery in their beverages. One particular drink worth trying is called the Body Booster which is made with coriander, coconut milk and ginger.

What You Won't Find Here?

You won't find salads, or lattes, or anything that is not healthy, vegan and especially crafted for the health and diet conscious Mumbaikars. You will find meal bowls, instead; and whole wheat pastas that are tossed in avocado and sauce and spinach puree. Nothing here is made from lactose, or preservatives. And everything can be turned into vegan and gluten-free preparations in a matter of minutes.

The menu is majorly vegetarian, with very few meat options. So, in case you were hoping for a hearty non-vegetarian meal, this is not the place for you.

But, for vegans and organic food lovers, this place is paradise. Given that vegan and organic cafés are still on a very steady rise in the country, it will take a while before options for such places become more prevalent and spread out. Until then, we're glad to have cafés like these crop up, especially since people are growing more aware and conscious of the food they consume.
