Sopa Serrana // Andean Soup

Sopa Serrana // Andean Soup

One thing my husband can do, that I cannot, is eat the same thing repeatedly. If he likes something, he really has no problem with partaking again and again. If we are talking about dessert, you might find me partial to a few of the same things over and over. But, in all reality, I […]

Cream of Anything Soup Mix

Cream of Anything Soup Mix

Do you know how frustrating it is to have a list of recipes that you cannot make for lack of ingredients. Or, to be more specific, the lack of a very particular ingredient.

Sopa de Quinua // Peruvian Quinoa Soup

Sopa de Quinua // Peruvian Quinoa Soup

Peruvian Quinoa Soup is a delicious blend of vegetables with a simple broth base. If you would prefer a vegetarian version, skip the step of simmering the meat and add an extra cup or so of vegetables.

Sopa de Frejoles // Peruvian Bean Soup

A favorite soup in our home! This is a delicious blend of flavors and textures. Be sure to prepare the yucca, plantain and sweet potato to serve along with the soup – you won’t regret it!


Menestron // Peruvian Minestrone Soup

Menestron is a hearty soup, filled with a variety of beans and vegetables. Although different from the Italian Minestrone soup many are accustomed to, this version is unforgettable. Don’t forget the canchita or aji sauce!

Crema de Espinaca // Cream of Spinach Soup

Popeye’s favorite when he visits Peru! Spinach is great to incorporate into your meals and this is a delicious way to do so!

Aguadito // Peruvian Cilantro Soup

Aguadito is a delicious, flavorful soup which is traditionally made with chicken giblets. This version is meatless, although turkey or chicken would be a wonderful addition!

Spicy Squash Ginger Soup

Spicy Ginger Squash Soup

Ginger is used in Peru mainly for the Peruvian Chinese food. This delicious – and I mean delicious! – soup allowed me to play with several types of ginger. 

Tomato Lentil Soup

Tomato Lentil Soup

Lentils are a large part of the vegetarian diet due to their high protein content. So I hear. They are commonly combined with a grain such as rice to form a complete protein (a protein containing all essential amino acids). Apart from protein, lentils are beneficial due to their dietary fiber, vitamin B1 and minerals […]
