So I am a recipe tester for Terry Hope Romero’s upcoming Vegan Latina cookbook. This is my first time being a tester and I feel very fortunate to try out new recipes and especially because they are Latin recipes. I am Cuban and am accustomed to eating lots of Latin food so veganized old favorites is just well, fantastic. So far everything I have tried has been great – I can’t wait for the book to come out! Here are some teaser photos, enjoy!
Yeah, that’s right, homemade pupusas! Aren’t they pretty and oh sooo tasty!
Yellow Rice with Garlic
This yellow rice gets its color from annatto infused oil.
Arroz con Gandules
Arroz con Gandules is a traditional Puerto Rican dish and this veganized version rivals any I’ve ever had.
Pickled Red Onions
Very addictive condiment that has a beautiful color.
Pine Nut Crema
I can’t stop eating this stuff – its like a Latin hummous when served cold and sets up up like cheese when baked!
Chile Relleno with Pine Nut Crema
Hopefully the pics speak for themselves! Stay tuned for more yummy Latin food!
