Delicious! I just threw this together last minute and it reminded me of a Cuban dish I had in Navarre, Florida while visiting a friend!
I used up ingredients I had on hand since I couldn't get out to the store because of the snow and for creating this dish from scratch, it was a huge hit with my DH and picky daughter.
Based on a Bon Appetit recipe from January 2004. Don't let the amount of garlic scare you - the low, slow cooking mellows it to a delicious, buttery flavor. Low fat and low sodium, so easy and so flavorful. Serve with sauteed spinach or asparagus and mashed red potatoes.Submitted by ZIGWEEGWEE
This recipe is for 5 arepas. This arepas can be filled with cheese slices, ham slices, scrambled eggs,meat (shredded), tuna etc. Ech arepa has only 110 calories, doesn't have any fat calories other than the corn oil that you need to greased the griddle where you are going to cook them. If you choose to fry them instead of cooking on the griddle, then Arepas will be a fatty meal.
Don't forget that to the calories of the Arepa , you will need to add the calories of the filling you choose to accompany with.
If you choose Tuna, you will find that is a really light meal!!
Arepas are delicious!! Can be eaten for breakfast or for dinner.
This is among my many spanish favorites for its' flavor, simplicity, and minimal ingredients. If you have a pressure cooker handy, it'll cook in less than 20 minutes, give or take depending on desired consistency. It goes perfectly with rice or simply vegetables, if you choose. Either way, it will be one of your favorites also.Submitted by BERTA441
