Soraya’s Squash and Gandules Veggie Diva Delite
Soraya's Squash and Gandules Veggie Diva Delite
Holas all! I have been enjoying more vegetarian products after not doing so for a while. I’m a flexitarian and sometimes, all of a sudden, I just want mock meats! Thank goodness my boyfriend is real. He is meaty and he’s real. Tasty real meat. My papi is far from mock! I’m packing for my move to California. My fridge and kitchen have gone bare bones in the process. This recipe was created on the “Super Fly” since I have just a few ingredients handy. Its lunch time and I’m starved. I didn’t want to eat processed “mock” meat for lunch. Since my boyfriend is out at work I had to come up with something else to eat! So we are going super pure and super, super, super, super clean and super easy! Sometimes I like it rough, but today we are going suavecito! Tools you will need: A non-stick skillet with its lid, cooking spray and a spoon to stir this up as she cooks!

- ½ cup frozen peas
- 1 cup of pigeon peas/gandules frozen
- 8 oz. of raw cubed acorn squash skin and seeds removed of course. Though some skin can be cool for added fiber.
- 2 tsp. of olive oil
- 2 tbsp. of sofrito, fresh if possible. Preferably with no added MSG, food colorings, starch or oil.
- ½ diced large onion
- 2 cloves fresh minced or pressed garlic cloves
- 1 tsp. of adobo (more or less to your preference)
- 1/8 tsp. of annatto powder
- 1/8 tsp of cumin
- 1/4 diced fresh tomato
- Cooking spray as needed
- Dole coleslaw mix 6-8 oz., (optional)
- Start with your oils, sofrito, garlic and onions and saute a bit, the add spices and frozen peas, gandules.
- Then add squash!
- The peas, gandules and squash need to cook to your desired tenderness, firmness, 4-5 minutes covered over medium to a touch of high heat.
- Stir, check the squash and if it needs more time, then place the lid back on and give the dish 3 additional minutes in needed.
- The onions, garlic, spices and diced tomato will cook along with the rest.
- Check again after 2 minutes.
- This recipe is so easy!
- Once you have the mixture cooked to your liking you can add the fresh shredded dry coleslaw mix,
- (fresh cabbage and carrot) to bulk up the quantity and give you more veggies. Add that to the mix and cook that too to your desired tenderness. Or don’t cook it! Just let the heat of the main mixture soften it if you desire.
- The crunchy and firmer are your veggies, the more fiber and nutritional benefit you will experience.
- Again, all of this is to your desired tenderness and texture, my darling.
