FLAVOUR IS A FRONTIER
Natoora Oca di Peru Root
- A firm, juicy pink root native to Peru with a slightly peppery, nutty flavour.
- We source these roots from a specialist root grower in Brittany, northern France.
- Grown in open fields without the use of chemical sprays or fertilisers.
- Sourced during its natural growing season of November to January.
- When cooked, these potato-like tubers become starchy and lose some of their bright colour.
Take it further
- No need to peel - slice thinly raw and use like a radish.
- Roast whole, tossed with olive oil and parsley.

amazing in peanut stew
Used them to make vegan oca peanut stew. Fabulous flavour with a lemon tang. It is now a new staple in my Ocado order. I was lucky, never got a bad or rotten batch
Mine were very dirty and lumpy so hard to clean. Majority appeared to be rotting inside at first i thought colour variation as some pink and some of green however these were brown and peeling inside they looked wrong and inedible. Of the few i salvaged i knew i wouldn't enjoy raw so went straight for roasting. They were potatoes with a hint of radish (i think a peppery flavour but i did roast with pepper so can't be sure) comparable to roasted celeriac. Pleasant enough but probably not something i would buy again because of the hassle and definitely not because of the rotting issue. Would recommend for what they are if the quality if good and i just had a bad batch as they did look fine outside i can't blame packers.
new root veg tasty
bought these on offer. Tried raw bit like radishes. Popped them sliced in oven with some ciabatta bread..very tasty bit like new potatoes. Will buy again but not full price
tried them raw and didn't like them at all. tasted like sour crunchy lemon. went to try cooking them a day or so later and they'd gone mouldy.
Expensive but good
I got some half price, don't think I'd pay full price, but we had them roasted and they were tasty and very unusual. In a good way!
a good new vegetable to try
We tried this raw and cooked. It tastes different in both forms. Raw tastes like its cross between a radish and cucumber. Cooked in the oven for 8-10 min tastes like a vinegary potato. Some of my family liked it raw, some liked it cooked. I didnt really like it either way. Im glad we tried it in the flash sale. I will buy it again if anyone in my family ask for it.
