Usually, when putting these posts together, I find recipe, then I find the photo. In this case, it was the other way around.
Check out the details for this traditional Dominican Easter dish below….
Habichuelas con Dulce
- 2 cups cooked kidney beans
- 2 cups water reserved from the beans
- 1/4 cup of raisins
- 3 cups of evaporated milk
- 1 cup of coconut milk
- 1 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 lb of sweet potatoes cooked and mashed
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 8 to 10 cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- toasted or milk cookies (Recipe for Cassava Bread coming next week…)
- Cut the sweet potatoes into small cubes. Boil with a teaspoon of salt until tender.
- While the sweet potatoes boil, put the beans and the water through the blender. Strain the beans to get rid of the skin.
- Put the beans, the coconut milk and half the milk in a pot and bring to a boil. Add the rest of the milk, sugar, raisins and sweet potatoes and let boil medium heat for 10 minutes. Stir regularly to avoid sticking. Add the rest of the ingredients and boil to the desired consistency (thinner than drinking yogurt, the beans will get thicken when chilled).
- Spread butter on the cassava bread, sprinkle with salt and put in the oven until it turns golden brown.
- Serve the beans chilled with the cassava on the side. Put cookies on top of the beans.
