Sopa Serrana // Andean 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.

  1. I have never eaten soup for breakfast , but my father and my brother have sometimes especially when they travel to the Sierra and I know that people who works the land are used to eating it because they need to eat well.
    But for me it’s a little strange and I don´t like to eat fish in the morning either!

  2. Hey Gretchen, I’m so glad you posted this!! What can I use as a substitute for the Yerba Buena? I read that it’s similar to Spearmint. Can’t wait to make this one, I’m printing it out right now!

    • Yerba buena is the English name for Hierba Buena. The best substitute would be a mint of some sort. Honestly, I cannot remember if you can get both mint and spearmint or not. Also, the amount is minimal and if you cannot get it, just increase the cilantro.
