This dish is often served for breakfast or as a late nite snack.
1/4 cup Purple Corn Flour (Harina de Atol Shuco)
1/2 cup of Cooked Red or Black Beans
1 tablespoon of Roasted Ground Pumpkin Seeds (Alguashte)
Salt to taste (optional)
Sift the corn flour. This will keep it from clumping when you start to cook it.
Prepare the Alguashte paste. Take the ground pumpkin seeds and mix it in a bowl with 1-2 tablespoons of water depending on how thick you like it.
Heat up 2 cups of water on high. As it starts to get hot, lower the temperature to medium before it starts boiling. Start adding the flour and whisking it into the water. Whisk it til there are no clumps and the mixture has thickened. Add salt to taste.
Serve in a bowl. Add the beans on top and pour the pumpkin seed paste all around the bowl.
You can add more or less of the beans and paste, this just happens to be my preference.
This is often served with a red chili hot sauce but that's optional.
That's it. Hope you try it out. I'll be back soon with a Latino comfort food recipe that is Vegan, Gluten-Free, weight loss and diabetic friendly. Hasta Luego! Buen Provecho!
