Pupusa con Loroco

Pupusas are a masa-based dish that has its origins in El Salvador.  The exterior is a soft water-masa mix before cooking.  During preparation, they are spherically shaped with a quantity of cheese in the center before being flattened into their final shape.

Loroco is a flower bud bunch eaten as a vegetable.  When used in pupusas, they are chopped and added with the cheese.  Outside El Salvador, loroco is likely sold frozen only.

Pupusas are commonly eaten with salsa and a mix of cabbage [and maybe carrots] tossed with lime juice called simply repollo.
