Whole Harvest Kitchen: A New Healthy Eatery in Leawood

Good news for all the health-conscious folks in Kansas City! A fresh and exciting plant-based eatery, Whole Harvest Kitchen, has recently opened in Leawood. This marks their first physical location after starting as a meal delivery service back in 2018. You can find them at 4853 W. 117th St., in the Town Center Plaza shopping center.

What’s on the Menu?

Whole Harvest Kitchen offers a variety of delicious and nutritious plant-based meals. Their menu includes tasty options like hummus bowls, Mediterranean salads, jackfruit pizzas, and vegetable dumplings. And for those with a sweet tooth, they’ve got chocolate fudge cake, dark chocolate truffles, and banana-based “nice cream.”

Everything on the menu is plant-based and oil-free, inspired by the Blue Zone diet. Plus, many ingredients are sourced locally from Kansas and Missouri. Executive Chef Will Harris has a personal connection to the plant-based lifestyle, as it helped him improve his own health. His favorite dishes at Whole Harvest Kitchen are the sourdough pizzas and mushroom dishes, like the K.C. Barbecue Plate with jackfruit and barbecue mushrooms.

More Than Just a Vegan Restaurant

Whole Harvest Kitchen has big plans for the future, with intentions to open more locations in Johnson County and across the country. But it’s important to note that their goal isn’t to be just another vegan restaurant. Instead, they want to be known for serving great food that just happens to be vegan.

As Chef Harris puts it, “We’re not trying to change the way anybody eats. But if you do this once or twice a week, maybe it’s a gateway for you to change or get better, to get healthier.” So, whether you’re a long-time vegan or just looking to try something new and healthy, Whole Harvest Kitchen is worth checking out.
