Latin Twist: Paraguayan Cornbread (a.k.a. Sopa Paraguaya!)
Posted By Arlen Gargagliano On February 8, 2013 @ 12:30 pm In Latin Twist | No Comments
Don’t be fooled by its Spanish name; Sopa Paraguaya is not a soup! It is, however, a lovely and cheesy interpretation of cornbread.
Cornbread, as many of you know, is made in different ways throughout the Americas. This one, the Paraguayan cornbread, was recently re-brought to my attention by one of my ESL students. She had made it for the party at the end of the semester (mis amigos, one of the BEST parts about teaching English as a Second Language, aside from the fact that my students are all amazing, is that we have great food parties at the end of every semester!). Anyway, when I tried it, it reminded me of how much I love it! Here I’m sharing an adaptation of a version I first wrote and included in Mambo Mixers .
It goes really with with many different drinks, but a fav might be sangría . (I’m still on a kind of brunch kick…and so I’m thinking about how I would make this Paraguayan cornbread to serve with something amazing, like maybe fabulous fresh fruit, and a sweet sip for brunch!) Honestly this week I’m making it to go with stew in light of our impending snowstorm! But oh, if you’re thinking you might light to make it for your cornbread-loving valentine (!), I will be sharing a cocktail that is another perfect addition, on Wednesday morning between 6 and 7 a.m. on Buenos Días Nueva York, on Telemundo! (But if you are worried you can’t get up at the crack of dawn that day, I will be sharing the recipe right here next Friday!)
So, my friends, back to the Sopa Paraguaya! Recipe and steps to follow. I hope you like it, and do tell me, what’s your favorite cornbread?
First, I sautéed the vegetable mixture and wow, look at these colors! more->
Then I mixed them in with the masa, dough. Check out the steam!
I filled two pans: one, my favorite, for pie-shaped serving, and the other, well, you can see it here!
And after 25 minutes, and sweet kitchen smells, it was done!
