Beef Empanadas

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!

tortillas / roti

Tortillas / Wraps / Rotis

Thin unleavened flatbreads have changed how we think of sandwiches. Bring it to breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack time with our wraps that handle anything you throw at them!

Pico de Gallo

Pico de Gallo

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!

Tostada & Elote

Tostadas and Elote

Tostada is a Mexican staple food similar to pizza and elote is grilled street corn. You don’t have to be Mexican to commemorate Cinco de Mayo; you just need to partake in this authentic meal.

chifrijo

Chifrijo

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!

Chocolate Pudding / Fudge Sickles

A rich, dark and delicious dessert or a snack full of healthy fats?!  This raw chocolate pudding tastes better than it’s conventional counterpart and you now have a clever use for those fickle, ripe avocados.

Ceviche

Ceviche is raw seafood or fish “cooked” by lemon or lime juice. The acid in the citrus juice denatures the proteins in the fish, causing it to become opaque and producing a firm texture.  Now don’t wrinkle your nose… it’s invigoratingly delicious as long as you use the freshest of ingredients!  Ceviche is equally appreciated as a finger food,  appetizer or salad. One made with fresh white sea bass is a favourite.

This easy one-dish meal is your answer for chock-full flavour and goodness.  It’s also proof that tofu can be filling and scrumptious!

Mole Stew

Mole Stew

Mole is the generic rich sauce in Mexican cooking and makes this stew exceptional.  This chocolate-tinged poblano, tomato sauce is much thinner but thick on flavour.
