Ecuadorian Empanadas & Locro de Papa

Loading...
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 got baked empanadas with 2 different fillings - spiced sweet potato and a delicious cheese filling traditionally topped with salt and sugar and served with a refreshing tomato and onion salad and a fiery tomato hot sauce known as aji de tomate. To follow there’s a rustic, hearty potato stew from the Andes called locro de papa, flavoured and coloured with annatto oil and topped with avocado, cheese, coriander and more aji de tomate!
