Ecuadorian Food - A Collection of Ecuadorian Recipes

Traditional and Contemporary Ecuadorian Cuisine

Thanks to its geography, Ecuador is blessed with a diverse range of native ingredients. Because of its large coastal region, seafood is abundant. There's a mountainous strip in the middle of the country, where traditional Andean crops such as quinoa, corn, and different native varieties of potatoes are cultivated. The tropical region produces many kinds of fruit, such as pitaya and naranjilla.

Potatoes, yuca, rice, beans, plantains, seafood, chicken, beef, and pork are all staples of the Ecuadorian diet. Aji, a spicy chile pepper hot sauce, seasons everything. Ceviche is very traditional (shrimp is especially popular), as are soups and stews.
