GROCERY LIST FOR A CUBAN DINNER
These are all necessities in a Cuban meal - as told by my grandmother. Wanna get real? Buy some sugar cane, cut it up, and chew on it to get at that pure sweetness. 🙌
- •PlatanosMaduros (over-ripe, sweet) or tostones (unripe, starchy, fried, salty). Trader Joe's holds a special place in my heart but unfortunately, they rarely have plaintains. Whole Foods wins here.
- •ChickenOr pork if you have time and a slow cooker.
- •More garlicNeed a lil mojo? Sauté garlic in olive oil until it's a light light golden brown, then add orange juice, lime juice, salt, pepper, and cumin - bring it to a rolling boil then let it cool and voilà! Mojo.
- •Canned black beansIf possible, make it Goya.
