This dessert is a key component of Dominican Republic cuisine, and it’s most consumed during Lent. Being a neighboring country and having several Dominican friends, it just had to be one of my favorites to share with you. I always heard my friends talking about this dessert, but I had never tasted it.
I must admit I was a little scared because I couldn’t begin to imagine the final result of this combination of beans and sweet potatoes, coconut milk and spices, until I decided to prepare it a few days ago, and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I didn’t know what I was missing. So delicious!
