Heart of Palm (Vegetarian) Ceviche Mariel Lewis February 7, 2015 Appetizers, For the Fit, Gluten Free, Latin American, Low Carb, Nut Free, On a Budget, Quick and Easy, Soy Free, Vegan, Vegetarian Okay you guys...today I have an oldie, but a goodie for you! It's a traditional Ecuadorian appetizer, which all Ecuadorians ADORE. We eat this while at the beach, highlands, jungle, Galapagos...you name it; just anywhere and everywhere. It is so delicious, so refreshing, so healthy, and so good for you. Ceviches are typically enjoyed at the begging of a meal (as an appetizer), served very cold in a small bowl, and accompanied by fresh homemade popcorn/corn nuts/patacones/plantain chips (these additions add crunchiness and goodness to the ceviche -- just toss them in and eat it all mixed up with a spoon.) In Latin America, each country has its own version of Ceviche. The Peruvian Ceviche, for example, is more of a dip -- a shrimp cocktail of sorts that one enjoys with chips. Ours (the Ecuadorian version) is more like a cold soup, that is enjoyed with your favorite additives (listed above.) It is so YUM, you guys. Words can't even express how much I love it. It's by far my favorite Latin American ceviche (I could be biased though.) 😉 If you can't visit our lovely Ecuador soon, I highly recommend taking a little piece of Ecuador to your home. Get to experience the country a bit (at least by taste), and expand your cultural horizons.
