Quinoa - Unique and Healthy at Greens

We couldn't be accused of being 'ordinary' at Greens and our latest dish is certainly testament to that!  Currently on our menu, our 'Warm Roasted Vegetable and Quinoa Salad' is both unique and healthy.

Comprising quinoa, roasted vegetables, cranberries, apricots, toasted nuts and seeds with a tahini and yoghurt dressing, this unusual recipe is seriously tasty and super-healthy too!

For those not in the know, quinoa is usually considered to be a wholegrain, but is actually a seed, although it can be prepared like rice or barley.  A staple food in South America for thousands of years, quinoa has the highest protein content of all wholegrains, so it's perfect for vegetarians and vegans.  It also provides all 9 essential amino acids and is both gluten-free and cholesterol-free.

So, there you are.  Everything we know about quinoa.  Just don't ask us to pronounce it!


Green's is Grasmere's No. 1 cafe for vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes........we look forward to welcoming you!
