If it ain’t served with black beans and rice, it ain’t Cuban.
I’ll admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of rice. I do love brown rice, but white rice doesn’t usually do it for me. This recipe, however, changed my mind.
It’s perfectly seasoned, and so full of flavor. I think one of the reasons I’m not typically into rice is that it tends to be bland and boring, and that’s definitely not the case here. This dish gets some TLC, for sure, and yes – dried beans take more time, but they also add more flavor, and it’s totally worth the time it takes to get you there in the end.
