Naturally gluten free arepas bun with the possibility to taste the whole world in it. Fill it with vegetables, meat or salad and have a bite on the go!
As I recently have a little time, I was surfing on the web yesterday. In need of fresh, interesting tips, inspirational recipes that We have never tested before, to delight my family with. Searching for quite some time but could not come across too many interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I ran across this delightful and easy dessert by chance. It seemed so fabulous on its photo, it called for quick action.
It was not so difficult to imagine how it is created, its taste and just how much boyfriend will probably love it. Mind you, it is very easy to keep happy him in terms of treats. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyhow, I went to the site: Suncakemom and simply followed the detailed instuctions which were coupled with wonderful pictures of the task. It just makes life much easier. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a inconvenience to shoot photos down the middle of baking in the kitchen because you will often have sticky hands and so i seriously appreciate the effort and time she put in for making this post and recipe conveniently followed.
That being said I’m encouraged presenting my personal recipe in the same way. Many thanks the concept.
I had been tweaking the initial mixture create it for the taste of my family. I can tell you it turned out an awesome success. They loved the flavour, the structure and enjoyed having a treat like this in the midst of a lively workweek. They quite simply asked for more, a lot more. Hence next time I’m not going to make the same mistake. I’m going to multiply the volume to get them happy.
Original Arepas Recipe is from suncakemom.
Mix the ingredients in a bowl by hand until the dough comes together into a ball. If it sticks to the hand or the side of the bowl, add more flour to it. If it seems dry and falling apart, add more water to it.
Add oil to the dough ball and knead it further.
Flatten the dough into a circle shape.
Divide the dough into eight equal parts.
Make balls from the eight dough parts.
Flatten the dough balls into ½ ” / 1.5cm tall circles. This would yield about 4″/10cm wide circles.
With an oily hand rub together the cracks on the side of the dough if present.
Pour oil into a pan and fry one side of the circle shaped dough on medium heat. It takes about 5 minutes to achieve a golden brown color and hard outer layer.
Flip over the dough and fry the other side as well.
When both sides are done place them into the oven for 10 – 15 minutes on 350°F / 180°C.
Fill with any filling of choice.
