Seco de Res // Cilantro Beef Stew

When asked my favorite dish in Peru, without hesitation, I explain that there are favorites in each region, but that Seco is indeed my favorite Criolla dish.

Lentil Bell Pepper Salad

For me, the Lentil Bell Pepper Salad was certainly the star of the Mediterranean meal this past month. It was not only flavorful but also incredibly nutrient rich!
