As we bring in the new year many of us like to celebrate with family and friends. Figuring out what food to have for guests is always a challenge because sometimes (always lol) finger foods is just not enough to balance out the number of celebratory drinks being consumed on New Year’s Eve. If this sounds familiar, arroz con pollo vegano can be your solution.
Born and raised in South Florida, Cuban food tastes like home to me. It’s funny because whether you are Hispanic, American, Asian, European, etc., if you are a South Florida local you know every Cuban dish in the book! Cuban cuisine was another very difficult thing for me to even think about giving up to go vegan. Luckily, most of the traditional sides are vegan or can easily be made vegan. With this specific meal it is actually extremely easy to include the pan-fried chicken because products like Gardien’s Chick’n Scallopini are a damn blessing!
