Pastel de Milho
In Cape Verde, you'll find the Pastel de Milho on almost every street corner, along the road at a festival and even at the market. There are several variants and believe me they are all great! This version I learned from my mother and is my favorite. In this recipe we use spicy tuna for the filling and the orange sweet potato and banana for the dough, which are mixed with fine corn flour from Valle del Sole.
Canja or Canja de Galinha traditional chicken soup that is very popular from the Cape Verdean kitchen. This delicious soup is packed with delicious vegetables such as potato, carrot and lots of chicken.
Crunchy Avocado bites with ranch sauce! These delicious appetizers are super easy to prepare and incredibly tasty! The avocado contains lots of nutrients, high in healthy fats and makes your stomach feel full. Ideal snack for when guests come over because after serving these appetizers, your guests will see you as a top chef!
Chicken & sweet potato waffles it is!
Extra crispy chicken prepared with an airfryer. The savory sweet potato waffles are soft and full of flavor and the maple syrup that I pour over the chicken and waffles is just mouthwatering.
It is an easy and great starter to surprise your guests and yourself.
The grilled Coeur de boeuf tomato has a roast flavor, the mozzarella is so soft that its almost melts on your tongue and the avocado together with the pesto makes it so smooth.
This comforting tomato soup is made with ripe tomatoes in combination of canned San Marzano tomatoes, fresh herbs, carrot, garlic, onion, extra-virgin olive oil and a swirl of pesto and vegan cooking cream! As a side dish I had served warm foccacia and a panzanella salad.
