Food Glossary: Sancocho

Sancocho is a columbian traditional soup which I sampled in Cartagena.  It was really tasty!  The soup can be made using meat or fish and recipes vary from region to region.  The soup I tried had fish and an egg and was quite creamy.  Other core ingredients in the soup include plantain, yuka, potato and corn.  The soup is usually served alongside other ingredients - from rice or salad, to meat and arepa.  This hearty soup is very satisfying and delicious and certainly worth a try.
