Announcing: Spiralized Specials Menu at Houlihan’s

Announcing: Spiralized Specials Menu at Houlihan's + Giveaway

Announcing: Spiralized Specials Menu at Houlihan's + Giveaway

The day is finally here! Today, at every Houlihan’s Restaurant location across the country, a new specials menu has launched – and it’s 100% spiralized (and Inspiralized!) and lasts until June!

If you haven’t seen my teasers on Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter, well – I developed a specials menu for Houlihan’s with spiralized recipes!

#dreamsdocometrue

I can’t express how excited I am to be so lucky to bring some of my recipes to the masses! I love that Houlihan’s is affording me the opportunity to bring healthy options to their restaurant!

Houlihan’s makes an effort to make their dishes from scratch and really focus on the ingredients and the process, which I really appreciate!

I flew to Kansas City (remember this post?) and hung out with the (awesome) corporate chef, Nick, and we came up with three recipes to feature on the menu.

Here’s a behind the scenes video:

Without further ado, here are the menu items:

Thai “Noodle” Salad

Butternut Squash Lasagna with Pesto Zucchini Noodles

Announcing: Spiralized Specials Menu at Houlihan's + Giveaway

Sweet Potato Mexicali Flatbread

 

How delicious does everything sound and look? Seriously, you’re going to love this specials menu! As of today, you can go to any Houlihan’s location and order from the menu – up until June! #pinchme

Thank you for all of your support in advance, seriously. Your kind words and excitement makes me work harder every day!

And if you visit a Houlihan’s restaurant and have something on the Inspiralized specials menu, make sure to hashtag #inspiralized and #houlihans so I can see! We’ll be regramming our favorite shots!

Robyn says:
Can't wait to try this!! Congrats!
Janice L says:
I've stopped eating out because most menus do not cater to healthy lifestyles. This is exciting - for you and for all of us looking for something good for us! Other than the bacon (and sausage?), they appear to be vegetarian, which is how I eat most of the time. Sadly, to eat any of these menu items, I'd have to go to the South San Francisco Holiday Inn at the Airport. Looks like it might be worth a trip! Congratulations on your new project!
Amanda Hoffman says:
I wish there was a restaurant near me to try this! I just started spiralizing and LOVE IT!

anastasia says:
I bought the latest menu plans for Vegan and Gluten Free, and a couple of these look familiar! I made the lasagna with (veggie) sausage over the weekend, and I have a bowl of thai noodle salad on my desk right now! Very sad this didn't come out a few months ago. I was working all summer in New Jersey and my hotel was mere steps from a Houlihans, and would have *loved* this option there. Now I'm back home in Toronto, though. Congratulations on this exciting venture!

Olivia says:
Hi! I just love the lasagna and noodle side salad, I order it every time I go to Houli's. I was wondering, are the smart points calculated any where for the Houlihans dishes? I have been calculating based on the meal as a whole off of the calculations on the Houlihan's website so I am sure that's over all,not the break down of the 0 point veggies.
