Plant Based, Gluten Friendly Menu Options and the ‘Garden Graze’ Stroll Coming to EPCOT’s Flower and Garden Festival


EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival kicks off on March 4th at the Walt Disney World Resort and will run though June 1, 2020.

This year there are several Plant Based and Gluten/Wheat Friendly options coming to the outdoor kitchens!

Let’s take a look at each kitchen and see what they are offering for these two categories.

Flavor Full Kitchen Hosted by AdventHealth

This outdoor kitchen is offering Grilled Baby Vegetables with Hummus Cream and Red Pepper Coulis -which is a Plant Based option.

The Honey Bee-stro Hosted by National Honey Board™

At this outdoor kitchen they are offering Roasted Cauliflower with Buckwheat Honey Carrot Purée, Wild Rice Pilaf, Asparagus, Honey-blistered Grapes, Sunflower Brittle, and Coriander Flowers – Which is a Gluten/Wheat Friendly item.

Pineapple Promenade

At this location they will have the Plant Based- DOLE Whip® available.

The Citrus Blossom

Here guests can find two Gluten/Wheat Friendly menu items:

Lobster Tail with Meyer Lemon Emulsion and Grilled Lemon is Gluten/Wheat Friendly.

The second option is the Crispy Citrus Chicken with Orange Aïoli and Baby Greens.

Northern Bloom

There is one Gluten/Wheat friendly option at the kiosk: Seared Scallops with French Green Beans, Butter Potatoes, Brown Butter Vinaigrette and Apple-wood Smoked Bacon.

Florida Fresh

At this kiosk those looking for Plant Based options can try the non-alcoholic Watermelon Cucumber Slushy.

Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market

Here there is a Potato Pancakes with House-made Apple SaucePlant Based option.

Refreshment Outpost

Yet another Plant Based option will be available at the Refreshment Outpost with the Pineapple Skewer with Tajin Seasoning.

Trowel & Trellis Hosted by Impossible™ Foods

Now here is where Plant Based fans are going to find the Impossible Food choices.

Both Plant Based and Gluten/Wheat Friendly guests can enjoy the Grilled Street Corn on the Cob with Savory Garlic Spread and the Chocolate Pudding Terrarium with Avocado Cream, Matcha Crumble, and Baby Herbs.

Plant Based eaters can also get the Impossible™ Farmhouse Meatball with Lentil Bread, Spinach, Marinated Vegetables, and Creamy Herb Dressing.

But that isn’t all! According to Plant Based food lovers can participate in a special EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival vegan “Garden Graze” opportunity.

Like cookie strolls or other festival “stroll” events, guests can visit locations and receive a “prize” for completing the event.

To complete the stroll you need to purchase five items:

1. Farmhouse Meatball from Trowel & Trellis
2. Grilled Baby Vegetables with Hummus from Flavor Full Kitchen
3. Potato Pancakes with House Made Apple Sauce from the Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market
4. Pineapple Skewer with Tajin From the Refreshment Outpost
5. Watermelon Cucumber Slushy from Florida Fresh

After you complete your stroll head over to the Pineapple Promenade for “a complementary specialty mango Dole Whip beverage and a packet of basil seeds for planting.”

I hope this helps those who might be looking for options to meet their dietary needs.
