Aji Verde is a Peruvian hot sauce that I LOVE SO MUCH! If you’ve ever gone to a place that serve pollo a la brasa, it will look familiar to you. It’s usually kept in squeeze bottles on every table. You dip your yucca fries it, you douse the chicken with it…and then you start sweating because it’s so spicy. And yet, you can’t stop eating it.
It’s addicting! This sauce is SO good. It does require two ingredients that used to be harder to find. But now, thanks to ol’ Amazon, it’s much easier.
The past few weeks I’ve been cooking like crazy in the kitchen. There are weeks that go by where I feel like all of my ideas are awful. Other weeks, I feel like I hit a groove and everything makes sense, falls into place and feels great. Last week was that week. So, this means that I have a bunch of recipes coming at you real fast. I can’t wait.
The first one that’s up is this not super creative one haha. Instant Pot Vegan Quinoa Chili.
I love a quick pasta, don’t you? It’s the perfect thing to have in your back pocket when it’s cold and chilly outside. I’m not gonna lie, I sometimes struggle with making these quick pastas interesting. A lot of times it’s just boring red marinara sauce and cheese. But Josh is great at this, grabbing ingredients out of our produce drawers and combining foods together that I wouldn’t normally think of.
This pasta is a play off of a pasta he threw together a few months ago. It has cauliflower, lots of lemon, sautéed kale and best of all…bacon.
