Hearts of Palm Mix Rice #SundaySupper

DSC_0002If I learned anything since I was little, is that on occasion the food budget was cut and the meat was not an option, so as good Costa Rican girl I ate what my grandmother prepared.
One of the favorite dishes at home was the Arroz con Palmito (Hearts Of Palm Mix Rice) is very inexpensive and easy to make, the big advantage is that you can use leftover rice from the previous day and believe me in my house rice was one of the things that always leftovers.

  9. This sounds fantastic! I do have to admit so that I have never cooked with Hearts of Palm. Sounds like a dish that I can adapt for our dietary needs and it may make soon an appearance on our dinner table in Portland 🙂 Thank you, Kathia. ~ Bea @ The Not So Cheesy Kitchen
