Sopa de Frejoles // Peruvian Bean Soup

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    What beans and squash would you substitute with in America?

    • Good question! I have been playing with butternut squash and it is a bit sweet. Pumpkin would probably be a better substitute. The beans you can actually find in the US. Frejol Canario, Frejol Peruano or Peruvian Yellow beans – something along that line. You will find them at most Latin markets or at grocery stores that have a higher Latin customer base. Great soup, perfect for a cold day. Was just thinking about making this soon!!
