Finally I’ve got round to trying out some recipes! I chose colombian style red beans, yellow garlic rice and the classic cabbage salad with cilantro citrus vinaigrette.

The beans… Not the prettiest, but really tasty. Nice and sweet from the plantain, would def make again.

Rice… So simple yet so good. I had to use turmeric for the yellow since can’t get my hands on annatto seeds (agh!), so not totally authentic.

Together with the salad on a tortilla. Nom.

There’s so many recipes I’d love to try from this book but sadly really limited by what ingredients I can get my hands on. Annatto, masa, many of the beans and chiles… nowhere except expensive specialist websites it seems! I’ve noticed a big Caribbean grocery on my bus journey to work so that might be worth a shot. Until then I’ll be trawling VV for doable recipes.
