Paradores: Ahead of Their Time
Not only did Paradores kick-start the health food movement in their daily menus, but they also cater to any dietary restriction under the Spanish sun, from coeliacs to vegetarians. Paradores has been recognized for their innovations by both the International Health Foundation as well as the Gastronomy Academy for re-establishing home-cooked healthy dishes in their restaurants.
Their gastronomic creations are another reason that they were granted this reward. The head chefs have the ability to create a menu that attracts everyone. The care that is put into creating the menus only shows just how important the dining experience is to Paradores. They want to give you the meal of your dreams.
Just for Starters
Chef Gistau at Parador Bielsa loves creating new recipes for all taste buds and food preferences. His Aragonese fried vegetables are paired with a zesty alioli sauce that shouldn't be missed! He mixes traditional veggies like tomato, pepper, onion and courgette with unexpected flavours like coconut. It's a surprising twist on the classic alioli recipe that will leave your palate wanting more.
A Hearty Soup
Another example of a vegetarian dish is this Herreño Cheese Soup. Parador El Hierro takes the traditional papas arrugadas from the Canary Islands and gives them a bit of a twist. With the excellent blend of chopped vegetables, this is the chunkiest, heartiest soup you will ever come across. Topped with a special cheese, you will get your serving of protein to keep you energized for the rest of the day.
Don't Forget Dessert!
This pastry from La Mancha is a wonderful blend of basic ingredients like milk, flour and honey. Not overly sweet or gooey, the fried treat is the perfect end to a delicious meal.
With so many options to choose from, Paradores only has one question: Can we take your order?
