The Holiday’s Spirit always calls us for baking together, spending time in the kitchen as a family. This desert can be saved in the fridge properly covered for…… as long as it last… ( usually not much ) :) . Its perfect to enjoy with a local organic Costa Rican coffee, a hot cocoa, or a Te Namaste but most important of all, enjoy with your family and friends. #CostaRica #Holidays #Deserts #ApplePie Ingredients Apples / 12 tico apples Honey / ½ cup Cinnamon powder / 3 tablespo

In Costa Rica is part of the culinary tradition to make “rice pies”, one of the most popular ones is the heart of palm in bechamel sauce. If you haven't had the blessing yet to try one of these delicious baked goods then this is your opportunity to make one yourself. The recipe is gluten-free and you can choose if you want cow or goat cheese in it (of which ones we have Amaaaazing artisan providers in our platform) or the Vegan option which I like very very much as well.
Fresh, unadulterated seasonal fruit will always be the best choice for a healthy, simple breakfast. Full of fruits, nuts, and with gluten free oats, this is not only nourishing but also delicious. Sprinkle your favorite nut butter over this Breakfast Bowl and be energized for the day. #tropical #vegan #glutenfree #breakfast #costarica Ingredients

Refreshing and a tropical appetizer that everyone will enjoy. For this recipe you will have the opportunity to practice the art of breaking the coconut and take the meat out of the shell or wood :). Plantain chips are our favorite ones to go with this recipe but you can have it with yuca ones of any other kind if you prefer. Serve cold with the chips. Enjoy! #vegan #raw #costarica #healthyfood #coconut Ingredients

The absolute best Alfredo Sauce that tastes like the guilty version. Lots of onion is the secret to this easy, low ingredient and rich dairy-free and oil-free alfredo sauce. It goes perfectly with the gluten free breadfruit pasta from Chef Maria Santiago.

Most of days we have savory breakfasts but some other days we give ourselves the pleasure to have a sweet treat like this heavenly toasty treats. For a GF option change for a GF bread option and for Vegan use a commercial substitute/replacement of egg or cooked linseeds and fry only with coconut oil. Enjoy with a cup of unsweetened local coffee or herbal tea! #farmtotable #costarica #recipe #buylocal #glutenfree Ingredients:

One of the typical salads of my mother and father's native country, the Fatush is the combination of fresh vegetables, wrapped by the citrus of the lemon mesino so that it gives the touch of acid accompanied by salt, olive oil and a special seasoning Sumac, comes from the berries of a tree that grows in all areas of the Mediterranean and part of the Middle East.

This week I am happy to share the best banana bread that we have ever tried and make in our kitchen. Its an original recipe from my sweet friend and neighbor Pam, and we added some tropical flavor with the ginger, coconut sugar and cacao vibes. We also have a gluten free option with bread fruit flour, there is not more tropical than that!
You have to give it a try!

#farmtotable #costarica #recipe #buylocal This recipe is an authentic Costa Rican Recipe. I certainly love all kind of bread but when it comes to corn I choose any of it versions without a doubt. Corn is actually a seasonal vegetable in our country, so there are only about two times during the year that we have the pleasure to enjoy it as a fresh local “farm to table” delight. The typical ones are made with cow milk, butter and white sugar, and tic@s eat them with sour cream…
#vegan #plantbased #caribbean #tropicalstyle #costarica #costaballena #tradition #culture A refreshing option for the hot mornings. This ceviche served for lunch with an extra salad aside and chips is so fulfilling and delicious. Easy steps for making it and the result is amazing. So many of us love the tico green plantains so lets give them a different use! Ingredients

A salad that is fresh but an intense flavor in the dressing, one of my family and clients favorite one without a doubt. You can change some of the vegetable ingredients if needed but the dressing recipe I would recommend to follow directions for a good result. Plant based recipe for vegans and gluten free preferences as well.
I love to serve this salad with fresh made patacones. Enjoy! #costarica #costaballena #plantbased #natural #fresh #healthy #vegan #buylocal #delivered #
