Be creative in your table! Enrich your meals with cochayuyo. Wash cochayuyo (which will lose its hardness), or boil a few minutes first and then add the remaining ingredients together. The need cooking cochayuyo previously and time will depend on the rest of ingredients and also the "texture" we like the most, if softer and more body. In the preparation of most dishes is not necessary to cook previously. We must bear in mind that cooking is about 20 to 30 minutes.
