CARROT
Like all colourful vegetables, carrots are a gold mine of antioxidants such as carotenoids, polyphenols and vitamins. Beta-carotene in carrots helps protect vision (yes your grandmother was right!). A high intake of carotenoids has been linked with a significant decrease in post-menopausal breast cancer, as well as prostate cancer.

South American Arepas

Have you ever tried arepas? Arepas are a classic South American dish which are gaining in popularity in North America. These beautiful little corn pockets are filled with adobo black bean, guacamole crema, roasted adobo plantain and topped with cilantro. Plantains are a staple of South American cuisine. These adobo roasted plantain are a delicious introduction to this exotic vegetable. Plantains look like bananas but eaten unripe they are starchy like a potato.¬† This easy and exotic dish provides a balance of creamy avocado creama, spicy adobo black bean, crunchy red cabbage and savoury adobo plantain. You will fall in love with this dish ūüôā

Tools

Preparation

1

Prepare the plantain: Preheat oven to 400 F. Peel and slice the plantain into ¬Ĺ-inch rounds. Place the plantain slices on a lined baking sheet. Coat with oil (1/2 tsp,¬†1¬†tsp) and sprinkle half the adobo spice on the plantain. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until the plantain are golden.

2

Prepare the Arepas and garnish: Preheat oven to 400 F. In a medium bowl, add warm water (1 1/2 cup, 3 cups), and salt(1/2 tsp, 1 tsp). Slowly add and combine maserepa. You’re looking for a dough that doesn’t easily stick to your hands, is moldable and moist, and can be rolled into a ball. At fist the dough may appear too liquid but the maserepa will absorb water and thicken. Once you have that consistency, cover with a towel for 5 minutes. 

Open the red cabbage under running cold water to reduce the cabbage smell.  Separate the cilantro leaves from the stem. Set the garnishes aside.

3

Pan fry the arepas: Separate the dough in balls (6, 12).  Carefully press the ball between the palms of your hands to form into a roughly 1/2-inch thick disc. If it cracks a lot on the sides, your dough may need 1 to 2 tsp more water. A little cracking is normal. You can close the cracks by patting the edge with your hands. 

Heat the oil (1 tbsp, 2 tbsp) to a large pan. Heat on medium heat. Depending on the size of the pan you may have room for 6 or 4 arepas at a time.  Cook for 2-3 minutes or until deep golden brown, flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes on the other side.  

4

Bake the Arepas: Lower the oven to 350F to finish baking the plantain and bake the arepas. Transfer the arepas to a lined baking sheet and¬† bake for 20 minutes or until slightly puffed up and a little more golden brown in color. Let the arepas cool about 5 minutes and slice the arepa in half to build ”sandwiches”.

Note: the middle of the arepas will be sticky, we recommend using a bread knife and wiping it with a moist towel as required.  

5

Make the filling:  While the arepas are baking, cut the onion in small 1/2 cm dice. In a large pan, add the oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp). Rinse the black beans in a strainer. Turn on the heat to medium and add the black beans and onion diced. Cook about 6 minutes.  Add the second half adobo spice and water (1/4 cup, 1/2 cup) combine and cook until the water reduces and a sauce forms Рabout 2 minutes. 

6

Fill, Garnish and Serve: Fill each aerepas with the black bean filling, the guacamole crema, red cabbage and roasted plantain. Garnish each aerepa with cilantro. Serve 3 arepas per person.

Note: These may appear small but they are very filling.

Preparation

1

Cook the rice: In the sink, place the brown rice in a strainer and rinse it well. In a pot, add the brown rice, water (1 1/3 cup, 2 2/3 cup, 4 cup), salt (1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp) and stir. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce the heat to medium/low, cover and cook for about 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.  Remove the pot from the heat and set aside. When the rice is cooked, add  the hawaiian pineapple marinade (3 tbsp, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup) and lightly fluff the rice with a fork to ensure the sauce is combined. 

Note: If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water at least 10 minutes. 

2

Prepare the vegetables: Wash and rinse all produce. While the rice is cooking, slice the zucchini in 1 cm slices, dice the red onion in half and then each halves into 6. Dice the bell pepper in 4 cm dices and cut the mushroom in quarters. Cut the tofu in 1 inch cubes.

3

Assemble the kabobs: Turn on the BBQ to 400F. Assemble the skewer, alternating the vegetables and the tofu. Lightly brush the kabobs with oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp).

Note: If you don’t have a BBQ, you can bake the kabobs in the oven at 400F for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked but still crunchy.

4

Cook the kabobs: Place the kabobs on the BBQ and cook about 5 minutes on each side. Brush the kabobs with the hawaiian pineapple marinade 3-4 times while they are cooking.  

5

Serve: On individual plates, serve the kabobs with the spiced rice.

Preparation

1

Marinate the beef and cook the rice: Cut the beef steak in 4 cm cubes. In a medium bowl, place the hawaiian pineapple marinade (1/4 cup, 1/2 cup) and the beef cubes. Let sit for at least 10 minutes. Keep the hawaiian pineapple marinade after the beef cubes are done marinating to brush on the kabobs and the pineapples.

In the sink, place the brown rice in a strainer and rinse it well.  In a pot, add the brown rice, water (1 1/3 cup, 2 1/3 cup), salt (1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp) and stir. Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce the heat to medium/low, cover and cook 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove the pot from the heat and set aside. When the rice is cooked, add the hawaiian pineapple marinade (2 tbsp, 1/4 cup) and lightly fluff the rice with a fork to ensure the sauce is combined. 

Note: If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water at least 10 minutes. 

2

Prepare the vegetables: Wash and rinse all produce. While the rice is cooking, slice the zucchini in 1 cm slices, dice the red onion in half and then each halves in 6. Dice the bell pepper in 4 cm dices and cut the mushroom in quarters.

3

Assemble the kabobs: Turn on the BBQ to 400F. Assemble the skewer, alternating the vegetables and the marinated beef cubes. Lightly brush the vegetables and the pineapple pieces with oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp).

Note: If you want, you can add your pineapple to the skewers. If so you may need 3 skewers per serving. This option is recommended if you are cooking the kabobs on the BBQ and do not have a vegetable tray.

Note: If you don’t have a BBQ, you can bake the kabobs in a 400F oven for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked but still crunchy.

4

Cook the kabobs: Place the kabobs on the BBQ and cook about 5 minutes to side. Brush the kabobs with the hawaiian pineapple marinade that was used to marinade the beef. Brush the kabobs 3-4 times while they are cooking.  

5

Cook the pineapples: Right after you place the kabobs on the BBQ, place the pineapple pieces in a vegetable tray for the BBQ and place it on the BBQ. Cook the pineapple about 4-5 minutes per side. Brush the pineapple with the hawaiian pineapple marinade 3-4 times while they are cooking. 

6

Serve: On individual plates, serve the kabobs with the spiced rice and the roasted pineapple.
