Costa Rica

  
I got the ingredients in to do a Costa Rican breakfast a few weeks ago but forgot that I haven’t had a weekend at home for a while so decided to cook it this evening instead. 

The dish I chose was Gallo Pinto  which means “spotted rooster” in Spanish. It’s a mix of black beans and rice with onion, garlic and pepper, flavoured with coriander and Worcestershire sauce. It’s served with scrambled egg and sour cream.

I wasn’t convinced I’d enjoy it as I’m not usually a fan of the texture of beans but this was delicious. I can imagine it would be great at breakfast time; in fact I have left overs for tomorrow morning.
