Is it the Soup time yet?

Is it the soup time yet?

Here is a round-up of some delicious soups that I have made here in the blog.

Hope you will enjoy them!

Locro de Papa or Traditional Potato Soup

In the northern Ecuador, that was my home when I first came here, the foods of preference are potatoes, papa, and kuy, the guinea-pig, both indigenous to Andes.

Potato can be found in almost every traditional dish in the area.

And the dozens of different kinds of potatoes make the food extremely varied with other natural and local ingredients.

One of the dishes I especially fell in love during the years I lived in Ibarra is locro de papa, a potato soup with fresh cheese.

I hope you will enjoy this delicious soup as much as I have.

You can find the recipe HERE.

Fanesca is a very traditional soup or chowder from Ecuador.

It is typically prepared and served only in the week before Easter (Holy Week) and eaten by households and communities during the Holy Week.

The making and eating of fanesca is considered a social or family activity where everyone from the extended family participate in some form.

The components of fanesca and its method of preparation vary regionally, or even from one family to another.

Although traditionalists serve this dish only on the Easter time, when the local Andean products needed for it, are fresh, it can be made on other times also.

Whenever you decide to try fanesca, I can assure you it will be an experience worth to repeat.

Ecuadorian Pumpkin Soup - sopa de zapallo ecuatoriana

This is a recipe for a traditional Ecuadorian pumpkin soup.

It is often made for the Lenten and Passover time without the meat.

In this version I used pork meat that gives it an even more delicious taste.

In my opinion it goes perfectly also for the fall and is an excellent opportunity to use all those pumpkins you have around.

Pumpkin Vegetable Soup

Another perfect soup for the season is the Pumpkin Vegetable Soup.

This easy and tasty soup is very simple to make.

Its great taste gets even better in the freezer.

And it is guaranteed to make even the children smile and eat happily.

If not for another reason than for the popcorn that is sprinkled on the top.

The recipe can be found HERE.
