Causa Rellena Vegana with Mixed Leaf Salad

Causa Rellena Vegana with Mixed Leaf Salad

I have been on a fascinating journey through Peruvian cuisine and discovered Causa Rellena Vegana with Mixed Leaf Salad. This authentic Peruvian recipe was kindly given to me by our favorite Peruvian Restaurant, “Mi Peru” in Darmstadt. Causa is an authentic part of Peruvian cuisine that has its place in every household. Following the motto Veganuary, I’m trying to eat vegan as much as possible throughout the month, so I made Causa Rellena vegan with Mixed Leaf Salad. The vegan version is a cold layered starter made from spicy potatoes and a filling of avocado and quinoa. The filling can differ due to local and regional tastes. You can prepare it with tuna, chicken, seafood, or as vegetarian and vegan. Causa’s great secret is its adaptable flavor and flexibility to suit personal tastes.
