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.

  1. 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?)
