      A dynamic but single love is formed by the sweet kumara, seasonal greens, and shallots of this world intertwining in amaranth/quinoa (for added nutrition) and rice flour batter in place of just the simple carbohydrate white rice flour. The flavour of an English cottage is evoked when lasses from the villages of Rosemary, Marjoram, Thyme and Sage join in the fun. For love to grow or to heal, the chefs may add a significant legume of choice when feeling young and foolish - we hope they always remain so! With the assistance of the peppery and beautiful watercress wench and her orange people, dressed in a NQ vinaigrette cloak of lemon, salt, pepper, and sumac, an atmosphere of a rustic French quarter is revolutionised. The situation becomes more interesting when a dollop of non-dairy sour creaminess joins proceedings. Multi cultures... but just One Love.

It came to NQ’s attention, who brought more loving care via its input of nutrient-dense ingredients such as the amaranth seeds.
