Ecuadorian Empanadas --- Locro de Papa
The Andean highlands of Ecuador are home to some fabulous big flavours…
The food of Ecuador is incredibly diverse as a result of the huge variety of produce grown around the country, from the coastal region to the Andean highlands. Here we’re making the most of a really important crop from the highlands, the humble potato.
To start we’ve baked pastry empanadas with 2 different fillings - spiced sweet potato and a delicious traditional cheese filling served with a refreshing tomato and onion salad and a fiery tomato hot sauce known as aji de tomate. To follow we’ve a rustic, hearty potato stew called locro de papa, served topped with avocado, cheese, coriander and more aji de tomate!
