There are various stories about how Ceviche came to be, but it’s definitely a delicious main dish or addition to any meal. Ceviche is Peru’s national dish and there are many varieties and methods of preparing this iconic dish.

Ceviche is typically made with raw seafood as the main ingredient. Citrus juices added to the dressing cook (break down) proteins in the fish or seafood. But in this case, as it’s a vegetarian meal, we’ve left out all animal proteins. Many vegetarian ceviche recipes use tofu but some people are allergic to soy. 

Ceviche is a light and visually appealing dish made with super fresh ingredients and, these days, is often served with nachos , chips, or pita bread. A vegetarian version is bursting with the flavor of fresh ingredients: onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and avocados, all with a lime juice dressing.
