One of our members- Judith- shared this dish with us at our Cultural Cook Ups at Loughborough Children’s Centre.
Originating from Ecuador, Ceviche is a tropical dish for hot weather, great to prepare to take on a camping trip. It’s a vibrant, colourful dish and was perfect to cook at our Cultural Cookup yesterday as it was lovely and sunny.
brown rice -about 400g
800g can of chopped tomatoes
1. Slice the onions thinly; chop the peppers into small cubes; chop the avocado inside the shell into small cubes and remember to keep the stones; chop the coriander finely and mix all together to make the Ceviche.
2. Strain the chopped tomatoes and blend or liquidise to make a puree- add to the Ceviche.
3. Juice the lemons and the orange and add to the Cevice and mix well. Add salt & pepper to taste
4. Cook the rice for 30 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, peel and chop the plantain into diagonal slices. Our Food Ambassador- Khadijay- suggested adding flour where the plantain is overly ripe to keep it together.
6. Heat the oil (enough to cover the plantain) in a frying pan on a medium heat. Take care with frying hot food and keep children away from hot oil.
7. Fry the plantain and put onto a plate with some kitchen paper to absorb the extra oil.
Serve the Ceviche in one bowl with the rice in another on the side with the plantain on top.
