This was my attempt at recreating my favorite meal from a nearby Peruvian restaurant: Inka Mama's
My main tackle for completing this meal was the Peruvian Aji Sauce, a green sauce that is used on rice or as a dip for bread.
- 1 head of lettuce, torn into pieces (iceberg is fine, romaine is better)
- 3 jalapeno chiles, seeds and veins removed
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 green onions
- 1 fresh bunch of cilantro leaves (try to avoid the stems)
- 3 cloves of garlic, skin removed
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
Blend all ingredients in a Blender, when beginning you might want to add a tsp of water to help get the lettuce to start blending.
For the rest of the meal I sauteed red onions and broccoli in butter and sprinkled them with a no-salt seasoning I bought from Costco. I did the same with chicken and once it was cooked, I added the two together. Very tasty and low on sodium.
