These are the vegetables more often eaten my Guatemalans. The green leaves next to the woman are a Guatemalan’s favorite: Macuy, quilete or yerba mora are the most commons names for it. Hierba mora is often prepared in a soup, but just as often it’s steamed or boiled and put inside hot tortillas along with requesón (ricotta cheese) or fresh Guatemalan cheese or queso fresco.
What other interesting vegetables you in the picture that you don’t recognize?
