Had lentejas for lunch today. Remember when I fussed at Otto for cooking lentejas on his day off? Well, I’ve been meaning to say this for a while now: “I was wrong!”
I had eaten lentejas before and they were “OK no mas” but what I didn’t know is that lentejas done right, are great. We have a girl who cooks for us and she is an excellent cook, especially when it comes to any of the typical “comida criolla” of Peru.
I agree, Lentejas done right are good.
My wife cooks lentejas simlar to this and they are great too. I always tell he i could eat peruvian food every day of the week. She’s been here in america for 3 years now and honestly I could go live in peru at anytime just for the food! Everything is so much better and easier to cook. Sure I find some ingredients here but unless they are dry things like lentejas, they arent fresh. Oh well. Glad to see you like lentejas. The plate looks amazing!
Gosh, I must be an embarrassement to all Peruvian women, I thought lentejas, was only served with white rice and that was about it. It never ocurred to me that I could add Pork chops? (is that what it is?)
We usually add meat, chuleta de res. I’m not sure if it’s a Cusquenian thing or we just do it in our family.
