The Mexican milpa is an incredible agricultural feat invented by Native communities ... It is a plot that grows mixed crops which combined together both nourish the soil and our bodies. The plants complement each other nutritionally and are more environmentally friendly than industrial agriculture. Although in decline, the milpa is still used throughout Mexico.
The name 3 sisters refers to the 3 main sister crops: maize, beans & squash. Everything about this meal makes me happy ... Mexican traditions, Native knowledge, ecology, sustainable agriculture I could go on forever about the milpa ... I hope y’all enjoy!
Hola a los Mexas que andan por acá ... Aquí hice una receta con las tres hermanas de la milpa. Es un taquito de calabacitas pero tambien le agrego frijoles para darle un reconocimiento a la increíble milpa. Espero que disfruten!
These beans are revolutionary. A crunchy, verdant, salty triad of singing sensory cues. Essentially, the pistachios, lemon, parm get chopped up and mixed together to make a nice pistachio pesto. To that, add a healthy glurg of olive oil and some blanched green beans. Serve with a baguette to sop up the heaven puddle at the bottom of the bowl. And voila!
Huevos rancheros (or rancher’s eggs) is a classic breakfast meal served in Mexican farms. With this simple vegetarian dish you will definitely have a great start in the day with healthy amount of proteins from the beans & eggs and the warm & spicy salsa to warm your heart.
