Delicious healthy organic food. I came in only looking for a juiced drink and they whipped up one of their specials- beets, carrots, apples, broccoli (I think, or it was celery, well it was some green veggie anyways) and it was very tasty.

Decided to go with a kale salad in a lemon vinegarette to keep things simple. It was delicious too! The Menu has lots of options so you can definitely find something to fill your belly.

The only thing disappointing was the slow and sporadic service. Otherwise, this is a great find for healthy El Paso dining!

I initially ate at the Green Ingredient last week and went back today. The food is superb and the service is as good as it gets. Our servers, Hector and Will, were wonderful on both visits. There is an extensive menu full of healthy, vegetarian, and vegan options. I have been eating a plant-based diet lately, but my parents enjoyed it as much as I did. I had the raw tacos and quinoa avocado salad the first time and the kale salad and black bean and nopal salad today. All were delicious and very healthy. The avocado chocolate mousse is outstanding. Don't worry, you can't taste the avocado. It just gives it a rich and creamy texture. Go try this place and support a new local option!

One does not expect a gourmet vegan and healthy restaurant in a bank building in the middle of downtown El Paso. This one is definitely worth the drive downtown and the hassle parking.
All the presentation was fabulous. The "Causa Limena" is a must try. Special dish from Peru, vegan, and so good that all my friends who are not vegan ordered it the second time we went.
The owner is Peruvian so this is his vegan interpretation of his native dish. Ask him for the history of the dish and he will gladly sit down and give you the history. (involves war between Peru and another country). The raw food tacos with walnuts was another amazing dish.
Besides raw and vegan food, meat options are available. Did I mention the deserts? Wow. Avocado Chocolate Mousse is a must try. A little pricey for regular lunch but so worth it.

I am not a vegan or a vegetarian, but I was completely surprised how good and tastey the food was. I went with two other people and we all split our plates and not one of the disappointed. The green water was also very refreshing. I will be going back!
