Loosely adapted from the well-known Peruvian dish, Arroz con Pato, which is very similar to the ubiquitous Spanish Arroz con Pollo, but without the tomatoes. It's also a little spicier, and has thePeruvian addition of a dark beer as part of the liquid(you can sub veg. broth). Peruvian food is unique and delicious-- a cultural mix of native Indian, Spanish, African, Italian, Chinese and, more recently, Japanese cooking. From Bryanna's book "20 Minutes to Dinner", and posted on VeganFeastKitchen.
