#CookingTravelTalks: How to Make Arepas with Black Beans and Mango Salsa

#CookingTravelTalks is back again and today I relive the moment where Eulanda @dipyourtoesin transported us to Latin America with Arepas, Black Beans and Mango Salsa! It tasted divine!

What are Arepas?

Arepas is a type of food made of ground maize dough. It is known to originate from Northern regions of South America and is a notable cuisine of Colombia and Venezuela. The arepa is a flat, round dough that is patted to make into a sandwich-style food. It is completed with various types fillings including meat, chicken, cheese, salad etc. You can try it with anything! I learnt that you can also add beetroot into the arepas!

In this particular live show, we enjoyed arepas which were vegan/vegetarian and gluten-friendly with plantain, black beans and mango salsa!
