About this recipe

Arepas are a tasty Columbian every-day food made of a simple dough of maize. They are so versatile as they can be made into sandwich pouches and stuffed with your favourite fillings. They are naturally vegan and gluten-free and, when baked or cooked in a little oil, they can make a healthy yet satisfying meal.

COOL STUFF

Himalayan Salt

Pink salt is not only richer in minerals than regular salt but also less processed and therefore more natural. And it's actually mined from Himalayan's mountain caves! Cool stuff.
