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!
My family loves marinara. I think I have a love-hate relationship with tomatoes.. Pesto is my answer to all the tomatoes that I get subjected to.. I love pistachios and zucchini. This is a comfort food I can dig into anytime ... too bad if my waist line groans.. Oh, I have sneaked in some tomatoes into this one .. just for color.He is not invited to be part of the official recipe 😊 There is no garlic in the recipe too, as sometimes I restrict the use of garlic in my cooking. Feel free to add in some chopped garlic, if you love your pastas garlicky..
Being a military kid mean't that my early years were spent moving around to different places. When my family moved to Rome, Italy from 2005-2007, our experience there definitely changed the way we eat and enjoy food as a family today. My Dad's Pasta Primavera is a dish that he would throw together when we had a few zucchini in the fridge and some parmesan cheese left over. It is a dish I also make for myself all the time due to it's simplicity and nostalgia which helps me in my busy college life right now. I hope those who make this dish think of good times cooking with their family like I do when making this.
