Coming to the Azores is all about connecting with nature. And enjoying some of the unique experiences that these islands have to offer. One of the most unique and exciting things to enjoy is the Cozido das Furnas – a meal cooked in a volcano. This famous rustic dish is traditionally made with meat and vegetables. Solar Branco’s signature version is a modern plant-based interpretation of the dish, using fresh local seasonal ingredients and a special blend of herbs and spices delivering a delicious and refined twist on the traditional dish.
Our vegan cozido and all accompaniments are plant-based and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. With the exception of the fresh local bread we serve, all dishes are naturally free of gluten.
Your meal starts with a gin and tonic. Red and white wine, beer and water are served throughout. We end with a delicious dessert. The dinner takes place at our gin library and terrace, where you can enjoy your meal as you watch the sun go down over the hills and ocean beyond. We love to host friends and family for lunches and dinners, and are known for our rustic meals, served family style. We delight in using fresh, seasonal local ingredients and surprising our guests with something unexpected. We are passionate about sustainability and eat a plant-based diet most days.
We developed our vegan version of cozido after frequently hearing from vegan and vegetarian friends and visitors that they have been struggling to find dishes suitable for them on the island. We wanted to offer something beyond salads and French fries. No-one should miss out on trying the delicious flavours of the island and having their dinner cooked in a volcano!
