A Canarian Delight: Mojo rojo
Neither the Spanish nor the Canarian cuisine is known for their many vegan or vegetarian options. Thus, I was particularly pleased to encounter Mojo rojo and Mojo verde when on La Gomera a few weeks ago. Both are vegan sauces that are typically served alongside papas arrugadas (“wrinkly potatoes”, i.e., jacket potatoes) but also work well with bread, breadsticks or vegetarian patties.
Let me share with you first the recipe for Mojo rojo, kindly provided by the chef of Noah’s Ark on La Gomera. The one for Mojo verde will follow shortly! Preparation time is about 20 minutes; you can grill the potatoes in parallel.
