Are you hungry? The Easy Puerto Rican Cookbook 100 Classic Recipes Made Simple

Callisto publishing has been issuing many wonderful cookbooks that are filled with recipes that seem very doable.  In my opinion nothing could be better for the current moment.  Since we are all eating at home more, it is nice to add a bit of variety.  This time,  the 100 recipes are for foods from Puerto Rico.  As can be seen from the cover, the dishes look delicious.  Just a few of the things that can be made are Puerto Rican style crab cakes, meat stuffed sweet plantains, tres leches cake (my favorite) and garlic rice with shrimp. Two things that I especially liked in this book are the section for recipes that take 30 minutes or less and the section of recipes that use five ingredients or less.

Many thanks to Callisto and NetGalley for this book in exchange for an honest review.

Pollo Frito (Fried Chicken)

Puerto Ricans use chicken in a lot of our recipes, so we’ll start with something that is pretty familiar but with a Puerto Rican twist. Simple fried chicken, packed with the flavor of our little island. Served with Arroz con Gandules (Puerto Rican rice with pigeon peas), you have a plate of Puerto Rican soul food.

Churrasco (Skirt Steak)

Churrasco is just as easily served as a main course at a high-end restaurant as it is put on a toasted roll and served at a food truck. It is a versatile meat that is a great representation of Puerto Rican cuisine. It uses a few simple ingredients, most of which you probably already have.

Bizcochos de Ron (Rum Cake)

Rum cake is a popular dessert no matter where you go. In Puerto Rico it’s usually enjoyed as a holiday treat. The Puerto Rican version, Bizcochos de Ron, not only has rum in the batter but it’s also typically soaked in rum glaze as well.
