OK, I did the cooking. What is important is that I bought the ingredients within walking distance of my house.
If I was in Seattle, I would expect to find the ingredients nearby. Maybe not walking distance but close. But, I am in Panajachel and this is a vegan dish with some ingredients not common in the third world. First, the easy ones:
- Fresh tomatoes from the public market
- Basil from my garden
- Onion, garlic, … from the public market
- Potatoes from the public market
Nothing special about that stuff except much was grown locally and all was available within walking distance. Now, on to the more interesting stuff:
- Tempeh — apparently made by someone in the area and available at Sandra’s.
- Shitake mushrooms — Available at Sandra’s or Chalo’s.
- Tamari — Available at Sandra’s or Chalo’s
I even bought the oven-proof baking dish locally. Clearly not locally made but, again, a short walk for something clearly not typical here.
BTW, it was pretty tasty.
