¡Feliz Navidad!

Wishing you all a happy holiday, by sharing one of the quintessential dishes of the season: Arroz con gandules, ¡apastela’o!

Rice cooked with pigeon peas, sofrito, and pieces of ham, covered with a plantain leaf, like a pastel (hence, “apastela’o”).

More to come next year! Happy 2018 and thanks for reading!
