Trying new soups

I’d say for the most part we LOVE Ecuadorian food. Fried pork, potato cakes with cheese, shrimp ceviche, creamy potato soup, fresh salads bursting with delicious tomatoes and avocados, and an almost endless variety of delicious fruits. We aren’t suffering.

However, every once in a while there is a little clash of tastebuds.

I love avocados and so I thought I would try “Cream of Avocado Soup”. Unfortunately, it was like eating warm guacamole and my mouth just couldn’t get into it.

A traditional and famous Easter time tradition around these parts is the soup called “Fanesca”. It’s made with 12 different grains, symbolizing the 12 disciples of Jesus. Many Mamas have their own version, and it seems like every one believes that their Mama’s is the best. I decided I needed to try it. But, like the avocado soup, the thick creamy grains mixed with strongly flavored pieces of fish just didn’t jive with my taste buds.



You win some, you loose some, and in the process you get to know the culture on a deeper level, it’s always worth trying something new!
