During the Tourism Fair FITUR 2019, the winning recipe for the 4th competition of #RetoMoringa2018 was announced, at the Paraguay stand, which was dedicated to The Soul and Flavour of the Guarani.
The winning recipe is MORINGA DEL MAR, (MORINGA FROM THE SEA) presented by MARINELLY MARLENY, from the Dominican Republic, who won the prize of 1.000€.
We are talking about a recipe in which the Moringa permeates the whole dish in an elaborate and creative way: it is in the wrap, the dough, the topping and the sauce.
This year has seen a further step taken in the high level of the recipes submitted. The everyday use of the Moringa is present in the various ways it is used in each recipe, showing its versatility and the beneficial nourishment of its mild flavour, which allows it to be combined with many other ingredients.”

Congratulations, Marinelly, you have given us a gastronomical work of art.”
If we look at the evolution since previous years, the winning recipes have gone from risotto to pizza, from energy bars and now to the Moringa of the Sea, an enticing name where the plant meets the maritime and integrates in a dish full of creativity and technique and where the spotlight is on the Moringa in each part of its composition, not only for its delicious flavour but its aesthetic.
The Yguá family is grateful for your dedication that has allowed us to know the Moringa used in such a delicious way and to such a high level of gastronomy. The jury did not have an easy choice when considering the diversity and wealth of the dishes and drinks submitted, but coincided by awarding the highest points to this recipe.
The jury, composed of Alejandra Feldman, Food Journalist; María Marte, 2-starred Michelin Chef and Elisa Escorihuela, Nutritionist and Founder of Nutt – Nutritional Counselling, represent three different points of view on each dish. Three types of knowledge that give us a cultural richness by satisfying our intellect and motivating us to learn more on how we eat.
The winner of this year´s Moringa Challenge was announced by Mrs Sofía Montiel, Minister of the National Tourism Board of Paraguay.
The Minister was accompanied by Alejandra Feldman, representing the jury.”
María del Carmen Figueras, the Director of Moringa Guaraní, sponsoring company of the Moringa Challenge, congratulated each person´s dedication as shown in the diversity of the dishes coming from so many different cultures, ranging from Paraguay to New Zealand, that have been able to give us so many versions on how to include the Moringa in our lives.
We wish to thank everyone for the motivation you give us to continue our research on the Moringa and to continue working the earth with love and appreciation.
The winning recipe was MORINGA DEL MAR, presented by MARINELLY MARLENY, from the Dominican Republic, which has been awarded € 1,000.”
A little Moringa each and every day gives a lot to our body. Important changes are the fruit of small steps and constancy. Moringa consumed daily makes a difference to our well-being. Why? Because it brings to the body many of the substances that it needs in order to regenerate. And that makes us feel good.
