It has been three months since I left Nicaragua, and I am starting to crave beans, rice and eggs with cheese on the side.
It is not the fanciest dish I can think of, but it carries many memories.
In Nicaragua this meal was served as breakfast, lunch and dinner, therefore eating it is a big part of living in the country.
I had to change the ingredients a bit, because they cannot be found in Denmark, and furthermore I had to count on the internet since none has passed the recipes on to me. However, the result was satisfying.
1½ dl kidney beans (soaked in water overnight)
1½ clove of garlic
½ tablespoon salt
boil the ingredients for about 1 hour
remove the water
fry the beans in some oil, add more garlic or onion if you like
add boiled rice for two
add 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
adjust with salt and pepper
2 cloves of garlic
scample the ingreedients
cheese: I used feta
I served it with iceberg, cherry tomatoes and bell pepper, but in Nicaragua the salad would typically be made of finely chopped white cabbage or tomatoes
