    That’s interesting, because here in Colombia there is a soup called “Sancocho” and it has all kinds of things as well, mainly starchy vegetables like potato, yam, yuca (tapioca), plantain, corncob-pieces and lots of meat + tomato, peppers…well really anything you want to put.
    (I of course have only eaten the vegetarian version :P)
    There is even a tradition here in which the children go from house to house asking for vegetables and everybody gives them a potato, a carrot etc and in the end the kids cook a big pot of Sancocho.

    You’re right Foehre. The name comes from the Spanish influence in the country. And it is just the same: a soup with all kind of ingredients basically anything you can get your hands on :-)

    Thanks for this great recipe! As a Trini who left the country at 9 for America, I have been struggling to re-connect with the foods I loved so much as a child. My Mom has an American husband so it was mainly American “food” since then. I’m a Mom now and am introducing my kids to my real culture as I remember it. Thanks for the help! Blessings.
