While some of the ingredients may be a bit hard to find, others are readily available and awaiting the superstar touch provided in this book. Despite the fact that not every one of the recipes is vegan, with options like Drunken Cacao Truffles, Pichuberry Marmalade, Triple Berry Camu Shake, Purple Corn Pudding, Zesty Sacha Inchi Cilantro Dressing, Veggie Causa, and Orange Lucama Smoothie, you can make vegan dishes that are packed with nutritional value. Peruvian Style Canary Beans, Fava Pesto, White Bean Stuffed Portobellos, Tri-Colored Scalloped Potatoes, Tropical Smoothie, and Pico de Quinoa round out a dazzling selection of healthy recipes.
While not every ingredient is readily available in my local market, I love the exotic nature of the recipes and am enticed to locate them in co-ops a little further out. Not only is this book visually stunning and tantalizing in its offerings, but it finally affords me an opportunity to use up the maca powder I impulsively purchased at the health foods store - Maca smoothies anyone?
This book is very well organized. It opens each chapter with a "power" ingredient, whether it be a fruit, veggie, etc. It gives a brief but thorough description of item and its subsequent health benefits, and then continues on to give many recipes using the particular food ingredient from Peru.
My wife is Peruvian, and although I really love the Peruvian cuisine, I am a vegetarian, and also very much interested in natural foods and welness in general, and this book is exactly what I have been looking for.
My wife who loves to cook the traditional Peruvian dishes, said she will make as many of these wonderful recipes to try and enjoy the benefits of Peruvian power goods.
Gracias Señor Villacorta for created a wonderful, very well presented compilation of healthy recipes.
Viva El Peru!!
Left overs the next day; I created a great salad and warmed up two small corn tortillas-FANTASTIC!
Did I mention that I have lost 10 pounds since I started with MV Nutrtion? I have, down two sizes on waist, feeling energized, confident and clean.
