Greenz is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant right by Tulse Hill station, close to Streatham and Brixton in south London.
Our vegetarian and vegan restaurant serves delicious fare, inspired by our travels around the world and our Caribbean heritage, ranging from rice ‘n’ peas to vegan paella, lasagne, salad and burgers.
We have a small range of gluten-free dishes on our menu and all our meals are suitable for those who are lactose intolerant.
Our dairy-free desserts and gluten-free cakes are especially popular! We even have sugar-free cakes which are suitable for diabetics. A bespoke service is available for those on special diets. Our healthy take-away options are popular with those who are too busy to cook supper.
Our cookery classes and life-style workshops run on Sunday mornings.
For further information, please call the restaurant on (020) 8678 0569.
We’re having our first reading group meeting on Tuesday 15th January, at 7pm, when we will be choosing the book we’ll read for the next month. Do come along, ready to enjoy a relaxed discussion while munching on our vegetarian vegan cakes – the bakewell tart and carrot cake are particularly popular – and sipping on one of our mocktails or hot drinks. We look forward to seeing you then!
Our vegetarian/vegan cookery classes are themed, e.g. one pot easy suppers; soups; salads, etc.. and focus on dishes which are nutritionally balanced, using ingredients which are easily obtainable and affordable. Each class lasts for one and a half hours, during which time, participants will prepare three dishes and discuss the nutritional value of the main ingredients. Advice will be given on where to purchase the ingredients. At the end of the cookery class, participants will take away samples of the three dishes which have been prepared and recipes for the vegetarian/vegan dishes prepared will be emailed to the participants after the classes.
Each class costs £35.00

With it being the new year, I’m sure that many of you are making new years resolutions to lose weight in 2013. I thought I’d share with you, my own personal experience of losing weight, but, more importantly, how I have maintained a healthy weight for the last 20 years or so, since becoming a vegetarian.
In addition to eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and taking plenty of exercise, I try to stay away from processed foods and have as many wholefoods as possible. This governs my philosophy for what I cook at greenz. I use brown rice in the Trini-India Fusion, wholemeal pasta in the Lasagne and greenz own homemade wholemeal pastry for the Pumpkin and Black eye bean pie. This is because wholemeal foods keep you full for longer and so you’re less likely to crave unhealthy snacks. Vegetarian and vegan foods are also extremely tasty and so you don’t feel as if I’m missing out on anything at all by opting for this sort of diet.
Do you have any tips?
