To survive this seemingly endless marathon of bleary wintry days, I need bowls of food that taste like summer. They must be full of bright flavors and colors to make up for all the grey that seems to abound. And, well, if they could also be warm and hearty that would be great. Because, well. I’m cold. Constantly.
This Peruvian bean bowl fits the bill perfectly. It’s a stick-to-your-bones stew that features the coconut-lime flavor combo in full force, so you can imagine that you’re lying on a beach somewhere sipping a pina colada while huddling under a blanket in your apartment with the heat on high.
