Green Spaghetti (Tallarin Verde)

Green Spaghetti (or Tallarin Verde) is very popular in Peru. It is very similar to pesto, with an addition of Peruvian pepper paste. This recipe was created for my cookbook, Peruvegan, and I promise it will be the best pesto you have ever tasted!

Potato Curry

I love ethnic food, and especially curries. This dish literally comes together in minutes, minus the cooking time.
