Puerto Rican food is amazingly flavorful. The culinary heritage of Spanish cuisine, indigenous and African; the combination of spices, and other seasonings is a feast for the taste buds. Apart from the fact that every time I make a dish from this lovely island, visions of tropical breezes and lovely people pop into my head.
One of my very favorites is arroz con gandules (rice with pigeon peas). There is also a recipe for pernil, which can pass for Cuban as well.
Cumin, oregano, lime juice, and mint all feature in Puerto Rican recipes. My friend who hails from that island has taught me many a delicious dishes that I am sharing with you in this section of my blog. A staple seasoning, sofrito, also appears on this section.
