VEGETARIAN IN CHILE

VEGETARIAN IN CHILE

By CHANTAL COOKE

Being vegetarian during a trip to Chile meant eating a lot of pasta and scrambled eggs – so I was pleased to arrive at Hotel las Torres in the Paine National Park where stir fries and salads were available – provided you asked for them.

They also had a table laid out with an array of delicious, traditional Chilean food. So I thought I’d get a closer look at the non-meat offerings, which all seemed delicious…
