Day 38: Oscar's Peruvian Dish

    Tonight my boyfriend made me a Peruvian inspired vegan dish with a side of rice and beans for dinner, which was amazing. He took the idea from a dish he had in Peru and changed it up a bit to make it vegan for me. I must say I am super lucky to have such a supportive boyfriend.

Oscar's Peruvian Dish

Cubed potatoes
Sliced carrots
Diced tomatoes
Green and red bell peppers
Olive oil
Minced garlic
White Onion

Green onions
Minced white onions
Green chili pepper
1 cup water

   Step 1: Chop up the cilantro, green onions, white onion, green chili pepper and toss in the blender. Add some water to make it smooth and blend well.

    Step 2: Lightly oil a frying pan and add some garlic and salt along with the potatoes. Cook until the potatoes are golden brown. Once the potatoes are close to done add the onion, carrots, bell peppers, and tomatoes.

    Step 3: When the vegetables are thoroughly cooked add the sauce and cook until warm. Serve immediately


  1. Awesome! Does this Peruvian dish have a name?

  2. he based it off of the dish "secco de cordero" but he improvised a lot. Thats why I didn't include the name of the "cordero" mean goat and we didn't put any meat in it. Hope that helps.
