Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad
This is a 90's potato salad - a new and improved, redone, much better potato salad. Not only does it have a sweet potato, in addition to a Russet potato, but it also contains corn, cucumber, and peanuts! Corn oil will do if you don't have canola.
Cuban Black Beans
Serve these flavorful black beans over rice, as a sauce for pasta, or with a good loaf of bread.
Cuban Beans and Rice
I originally got this from a Cuban friend, but made some changes to it. I have had it many times, the leftovers are very good wrapped in a tortilla, too. Very filling dish.
Cuban Black Beans II
A Cuban lady down the street made these every Wednesday...wonderful stuff! She served the beans over a bowl of hot rice, and garnished them with salsa, a little sour cream, and shredded cheese. It was also good without the dairy products. Can substitute canned, rinsed beans to cut cooking time.
Guyanese Cookup Rice
My grandmother's recipe. It's delicious and can be made with or without meat. It's also very versatile. Here I am using chicken, however you can use brisket, pigtail, oxtail, the list is endless.
Ginger Orange Brussels Sprouts
This is a great way to liven up Brussels sprouts. The orange and ginger zing pair perfectly with the sprouts' floral flavors. I have a blood orange infused olive oil that I like to use with this recipe. It helps with the zing. Other dried fruits or nuts might be interesting experiments.
Creamed Peas and Onions
In this classic accompaniment to a holiday meal, frozen peas and pearl onions are stirred into a basic white sauce.
