KU Libraries Diversity Committee's Recipe of the Week Archive
This week's recipe hails from WARM AND COZY Peru! This time of year Peru is in its summer months so I thought a nice warm soup from a nice warm tropical area would help all of us who couldn't park this morning because of the huge snow drifts down by Campanile and then had to battle the nasty, icy stairs of death and....um....Oops, I'm starting to sound a little bitter, aren't I? Anyway, this recipe sounds super tasty and who doesn't like a recipe that calls for a little beer here and there? For those of you who don't eat meat, the lamb can easily be left out to make a hearty veggie soup (just add a few more veggies). By substituting the chicken broth for some vegetable broth, you can turn this into a vegan delight!
This is a low-fat, high-taste dish that would be perfect to make on those snowy weekend days!
Stay warm and full!
