Vegetarian Ceviche
– magical –

Although it seems inconceivable to think of a ceviche that doesn’t have fish or shellfish of any kind. The reality is that the vegetarian ceviche also exists and the curious thing about this recipe, is that it gives the same sensation of being eating a fish ceviche .

The secret recipe or rather the magic ingredient is the “champignon". That is the ingredient that is used to
substitute the fish and it really does a very good job.

In this ceviche what is got is a type of fresh and light
salad ; excellent for the sunny days. In this recipe many ingredients are mixed therefore the ceviche’s flavor can be considered very diverse – and it can be served as appetizer with a guacamole or even as main course with a white rice.
