For some food options in Peru, let’s start with dessert! The first is “Mazamorra Morada” with the main ingredient of which is purple corn. It also contains various fruits like peaches, plums, and quinces. The other dessert is vegan by default! This is called “Picarones” and looks like a doughnut. It is made from sweet potatoes & squash, topped with a sweet syrup known as “Miel de Chancaca”. Even though meil means “honey” in Spanish, there is no bee honey in the syrup, just unrefined whole cane sugar.
For lunch and dinner, you can make some adjustments to dishes to make them vegan. Starting with Palta a la Jardinera (stuffed avocado) without mayonnaise, Ceviche with mushrooms or mango instead of fish, & Lomo Saltado (stir-fry beef) with mushrooms or other vegetables to replace the beef. Needless to say, Peru has some options that will suit your vegan lifestyle, and Alpaca Expeditions can help you with every meal!
