In this episode, I will be talking about stretching your meals to feed more people using inexpensive ingredients and some protein to make healthy tasty meals. We practice this often at the Snow house especially this summer when we have an extra kid staying with us.
My calculations show it’s possible to feed 6-8 people a very nice meal for under $5 per person, try that at a restaurant!
Today’s dish comes from the Cuban culture, Cuban rice n Beans, it’s served at every Cuban restaurant and is a staple of many Latin diets. It’s simple to prepare with humble ingredients and can be on the table in 30 minutes flat. It will also feed a small army!
In many Latin homes the veg component is fortified with soffrito; a mixture of onions, garlic, oregano, tomato, and Sazon a seasoning by Goya you can find in just about every market. This soffrito mixture is as varied as Latin culture itself, no two cooks use the same soffrito.
