Houlihan’s Launches Inspiralized Vegetable Menu


Houlihan’s is “elevating” vegetables to the” star of the show” with their Inspiralized menu featuring dishes made from spiralized veggies. To integrate this cooking approach to the casual dining industry, Houlihan’s has partnered with Ali Maffucci,the founder of Inspiralized.com. In collaboration with Houlihan’s Test Kitchen Chef, Nick Janner, they’ve crafted three dishes at all Houlihan’s locations for a limited time.

“In partnering with Ali Maffucci, we’ll introduce millions of people to this creative way of cooking and eating veggie-forward dishes that are surprisingly delicious. It’s unlike anything you’ll find in casual dining restaurants,” said Jen Gulvik, SVP Marketing and Creative Director for Houlihan’s Restaurants, Inc. “Consumers are looking for ways to reduce sugar and carbs in their diets, and the U.S. Government just announced dietary guidelines for reducing sugar intake. We’re hearing that sugar is the new fat. With Houlihan’s Inspiralized menu, pasta is replaced with vegetable ‘noodles’ for reduced carbs and sugar.”

The limited-time only Inspiralized menu at Houlihan’s will offer the following dishes:


· Thai Noodle Salad: Sriracha Thai peanut sauce tossed with spiralized fresh zucchini ‘noodles,’ mango, red peppers, snow peas, tri-colored quinoa, basil, mint and almonds with the option to add grilled chicken or grilled salmon.

· Sweet Potato, Corn & Bacon Mexicali Flatbread: Spiralized sweet potatoes and zucchini, sweet corn, bacon, Greek yogurt white sauce, pickled jalapeños, blend of cheeses and avocado salsa.

· Butternut Squash and Sausage Lasagna: Spiralized butternut squash ‘noodles,’ herbed ricotta, Italian sausage, sautéed organic kale-spinach-chard blend, marinara and mozzarella, served with a pesto zucchini ‘noodle’ side salad.

Houlihan’s has local locations in Hasbrouck Heights, Paramus, Ramsey, Secaucus and Weehawken. For more information on the restaurant and the new Inspiralized menu, visit the Houlihan’s website.
