When you are on diet and wish to lose some pounds, don't you want to still eat some sweets? Well, how about cakes made out of vegetables?
Patisserie Potager is a very popular vegetable confectionery that opened at Nakameguro in 2006; it is also the first specialty veggie bakery in Japan. Every day you would see many women in line waiting to try out these healthy sweets. There are a variety of cakes made out of different organic vegetables, which include tomato, pumpkin, avocado, carrot, asparagus, and beet. Some of their well-known cakes are "Green soybean cheesecake", "Green asparagus and vanilla mousse", "Gobo chocolat" and "Tomato short cakes".
Owner Aya Kakisawa focuses on using less sugar and makes full use of the vegetables' taste. She taught herself vegetarian and macrobiotic cooking before opening the bakery and not only cooking, but she also works in supporting farmers and providing nutrition education.
Many customers find the desserts very delicious and satisfying. The price is reasonable too! If you are looking for something healthy and sweet to eat, I would definitely recommend going to this cafe!
