Have you ever heard of an arepa? No? Well either had I until a few years ago and let me say this is an easy recipe and one you can make in no time and serve a bunch of people. Arepas are basically a type of corn flour mixed with water and salt, and you can add in different seasonings if you’d like. I like to add in garlic powder and depending on what protein I’m using I may add in a little Italian seasoning, some smoke paprika, or even some truffle salt if I’m feeling fancy.
Arepas can take the place of bread any day in my book. They are very versatile and can be used for breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, burgers, chicken salad, BBQ sandwiches, used as a dipper instead of bread. You can even get your arepa extra crispy and add some ghee and coconut sugar and cinnamon for a sweet treat and top with bananas, blueberries, or strawberries.
