My good friend and fellow mom Gaby is from El Salvador. Although she came to the United States when she was young, she continues to make desayuno Salvadoreño on a regular basis. She invited Mazen and me over to breakfast last week to try it and share the menu with you.
Tortillas in the making
Gaby used a secret trick to get them perfectly round…a ball smushed by a plate between parchment paper.
The tomatoes were fried in a little oil to make a salsa
I absolutely loved the pureed black beans! Gaby uses dried beans from her family’s farm in El Salvador.
And finally…fried eggs.
I loved everything – especially the plantains! It was one of those meals where everything went with everything else. I did a lot of dipping this in that.
To drink Gaby prepared the horchata mix with milk. It tasted like a latte you’d buy at Starbucks minus the coffee – very sweet! A perfect “dessert” to breakfast
Thanks for the delicious meal Gaby!
