Growing up, a celebration wasn’t a celebration without a plate of arroz con gandule (rice and pigeon peas)! It’s a classic carribean dish that my mom made on every single holiday (my kids call it holiday rice)! We had it on Christmas with a pernil (pork), on Thanksgiving with the turkey, for family gatherings we serve it with potato salad and lasagna (weird combo I know), and occasionally we would just have it for dinner with some type of salad or meat. Now, Franklyn and I carried down the tradition and make it for our family, only now we use LouAna Liquid Coconut Oil that I buy at Publix (I also use it in many health and beauty routines) in place of the butter and/or canola oil that was used before. LouAna is always the start of something good, and if you’re craving a fresh taste on your favorite dish, or homemade vinaigrette, LouAna Liquid Coconut Oil makes it easy to pour or measure. ~ Scroll down too see our Quick & Easy To Make Arroz Con Gandule Using Liquid Coconut Oil!
Coconut Oil is the freshest take on cooking! That’s because coconut oil is one of the most versatile cooking oils, perfect for sautéeing vegetables, drizzling on salads and even pan frying fish or chicken. Our arroz con gandule tastes just as great, if not better, and we not only serve it for holidays, but for lots of dinners too. This quick & easy to make arroz con gandule using liquid coconut oil can easily be made into an arroz con habichuela by simply switching out the piegeon peas for black beans, red beans or even pink beans! It takes less than 30 minutes to make, it’s especially quick if you pick a premade rotisserie chicken and serve it with a side of green salad and avocados (we don’t eat a meal without it). This way, you can have an easy-to-make meal for any busy night!
Top your green salad with tomatoes and you have a complete meal!
