This thread is for my favorite recipes. My boyfriend is from Ecuador, so I end up learning and cooking a lot of Ecuadorian recipes. However, I also love lots of other cuisines and make (or try to make ) dishes from all over the world (including my home country, 'Murica). We rarely eat out, but we're both busy so I end up doing a lot of batch cooking on the weekend. A lot of these recipes are primal, paleo, or easily modified to be so. My boyfriend isn't in to healthy eating, but he likes almost everything I cook and has a big appetite. To start things off, here's one of my favorite Ecuadorian dishes: ---Paleo, unless you go with some non-paleo toppings--- Encebollado de Pescado - a soup with tuna, yuca, and red onion. recipe - http://laylita.com/recipes/2008/03/01/encebollado-de-pescado-or-tuna-soup/ Laylita's recipes are usually pretty spot-on; I highly recommend her blog. Notes: - Since fresh albacore tuna is difficult to find and cost prohibitive where I live, I usually make this with canned tuna (I get the Wild Planet brand from Costco). - The way my boyfriend's parents make it, they cook the onion in the soup rather than pickling it. I love it both ways. - I like the soup as is, while my boyfriend likes adding a squeeze of lime juice, tostado, chifles (recipe here or you can buy them in a latin american grocery store), or popcorn. Another traditional accompaniement is toasted white bread, but we usually skip this.
