We still have the final few remaining weeks of winter and we felt it would be a nice time to share with you one of our most loved new additions to the Yeotown winter menu!
This dish is packed with Vitamin A which is important for eye and overall bone health and a strong immune system, perfect for the winter months! It’s packed with plant based proteins and complimentary flavours throughout, a real dish to enjoy during the winter.
We use quinoa as the grain in this dish which is a natural plant-based protein, has properties that help you maintain a healthy weight, it improves digestion and is a perfect GF alternative! Lemon is the undertone of this warming winter dish as we use both the zest and the juice throughout. Another immunity-boosting ingredient that is fundamental to the overall flavour of this dish! To garnish we have created a fig and coconut “bacon” flavoured with paprika and tamari to add a slightly salty element and crunchy texture. Figs are rich in calcium, they are known to reduce cholesterol and the risk of certain cancers. They are sweet, delicious and perfect for winter.
Our new Yeotown bowl is so tasty and the feedback we have received from the guests in Devon about the dish was so good it has persuaded us to offer our Yeotown winter bowl not only at our heaven in Devon site but also will be a feature on our Sussex Gardens menu and popping up during the colder weeks on our new Madeira retreat!
So here it is! Our nutritious and delicious YEOTOWN BOWL…
