Of the dairy free ingredients, one of the hardest to replicate is cooked cheese because of how it transforms when heated. Most vegan cheeses on the market are highly processed to pull off the desired texture. Qspice melting cheese offers decent flavour, melt and stretch using recognizable ingredients!
An empanada is effectively a savoury or sweet stuffed bread pocket. When baked, they come out like calzones and when fried they come out like samosas. Eaten as a snack or meal, this South American inspired beef recipe is the most popular in the Western hemisphere of the world. Having said that our scrummy little pies are a bit of work from scratch, they’re healthful and worth it!
Bottom line, pico de gallo has the same ingredients as salsa only it is always raw. In Mexico it might also be called salsa fresca (fresh salsa), salsa cruda (raw salsa), and salsa huevona (lazy salsa). The tomatoes make or break this recipe… only fragrant, ripe tomatoes will do!
Jump back on the avocado toast train! If you think the brunch trend is passe, give this version a whirl. Sweet savoury tomato jam and mildly nutty sprouts dial it all in. And the polarizing contrast of crunchy toast, buttery avocado and tender alfalfa sprouts takes you there again.
The name is a combination of chicharron (fried pork skins) and frijoles (beans); it’s two main ingredients. The dish is lined with rice, topped with salad add-ons and drizzled chimichurri. Like most Costa Rican fare, chifrijo is nutritionally well rounded and cooked from scratch from fresh ingredients. Chimichurri is a raw herb sauce that’s rich in antioxidants and a superfood of dressings. This translation is a mild, tasty dose of Central America!
