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.
