An welcoming Peter’s arrival to Bogotá my dad and I set out to make a typical Colombian dish: A Sancocho.
The stew is one of the most popular dishes and as most other Colombian plates it is fresh, healthy, and hearty. The soup is generally consumed at lunchtime accompanied with slices of avocado, a side of rice, and a fresh fruit juice.
The most common ingredients in a Sancocho are meat, corn, carrots, green bananas, plantains , potatoes, pepper, salt, lentils, peas, onions, garlic, cilantro, and yucca. This delicious typical plate is a must-try if you’re in the country!
