Honduras Food - Honduras Recipes
Honduras food is similar to the food in many
other Central American nations. I have included some of my own Honduras recipes to give you a 'taste' of Honduras food.
What foods will you find in Honduras?
▪ First, tortillas.
And then, more tortillas.
Tortillas are an every
day staple, just as bread is in North America.
Second, beans. Beans come in all colors but in Honduras, the food usually
included red or black ("turtle" for those familiar with Caribbean cooking).
Beans and tortillas. The country of Honduras runs on these foods.
▪ Rice. Many "blue plate specials" will have rice on them.
▪ A salad of some sort is often served with your
food in Honduras. Frequently, it will be a shredded cabbage, a
few slices of carrots, and moistened with a light oil/vinegar (hint of sugar)
Meat (inland), fish (North Coast or Bay Islands), or salty white cheese (salt
has preservative qualities in a country with less than perfect refrigeration).
The average Honduran can not afford these type of food luxuries. Salsas grace every good table and
often spice up the food.
So, on with the Honduran recipes. I will add to the recipes as time
permits, adding typical Honduras food offerings.
[Note to the purists: I mess around with recipes and I am far from a
purist. Authentic Honduran food can be found in two places in the world:
Honduras and New Orleans. I am suggesting recipes that I enjoy.]
