Eventually, after a few missteps, we made it to Uvita. The bus station is not quite a bus station, it was more like a large parking lot outside a restaurant.There, we waited for a taxi to the jungle for quite some time, and made it to Selva Armonia just in time for sunset. s we were walking to the tent that would be our home for the upcoming weeks, it finally dawned on me that I was in the jungle. On top of that, I would be sleeping in a tent in the jungle. I am a city rat and this sudden realization made my heart skip a beat. As the last rays of light of the day faded away, we had just enough time to drop our things and get our flashlights out. As night fell, the jungle began to wake up. The toads came out, the spiders awoke, snakes surfaced, and I…. I… I freaked the fuck out! What had I done?!
Since my first glorious toston in Nicaragua, I made it my goal to learn how to make this amazing side dish. Tostones, also know as patacones, are thick, fried plantain cakes and are usually served as a side dish.
Beets are one of my favorite foods. Not only are they deliciously rich in vitamin C, vitamin B, fiber, and potassium, but they also add life to one’s plate with their bright colors.
There are a few reasons why we fell in love with this dish: It is easy to make, nutritious, inexpensive, and you can find the ingredients in this list almost anywhere.
