sesame oil (i didn’t have any today, so i used virgin olive oil)

garlic / onions / carrots / eggplant / tomatoes / potatoes (anything you want!) i would add snowpeas next time

pho noodles

2-3 bouillion cubes

Prep: soak pho noodles (half pack for about 3 servings) in water for an hour

1st: oil, then add garlic, then add onions, then add eggplant, then carrots, then potatoes, then tomatoes, etc

(boil water in another pot and throw soaked noodles in for about 30 secs – 1 min)

2nd: Add 2-3 cups of water to the veggie pot, add the bouillion cubes, and after draining the noodles, add them to the water and veggies. Stir a bit and then it’s pretty much ready!

I had one day in Lima on the front-end of my Peru trip and decided to use it to walk around the bohemian artists’ district searching for graffiti (not a lot of it, so I assume there are strict fines for grafiteros in Lima) and always looking for a cool vegetarian place to eat. I happened to be across the street facing this gorgeous wooden train car and a big sign on the front that said “Vegetarian Buffet.” It was destiny. For 18 PEN (about $7) you can gorge on an all-u-can-eat buffet for about three hours, if you like. Highly recommend: Cafe Restaurant Expreso Virgen de Guadalupe. Located: Ave. Prolongation St. Martin 15-A.
