We all know that one Haitian woman who for some unknown reason was never taught to cook Haitian food by her mom, aunt, or grandmother. We’ll we’re here to help. Here are 5 Haitian recipes every Haitian woman should know. Let us know if you agree with our list.
Rice and Beans are pretty much at the core of every Haitian Meal. Don’t even invite a fellow Haitian to dinner if u aren’t serving some sort of rice dish. It ain’t natural to us. This should be the first of many Haitian recipes you master.
Stewed chicken is the most common source of protein in Haiti and the U.S. You can never go wrong with chicken. Stewed chicken is easy simple and can be paired with a variety of sides. Just make sure you clean the chicken using the Haitian meat cleaning process.
3. Boiled Plantain (Bannann Bouyi)
Boiled plantains are pretty much the easiest Haitian recipe with the biggest return, but even I have messed this up in the past. Timing is everything with this recipe. Let it boil to long and you end up with mush. Remove it too early and you’ll end up with a very dry tasteless meal.
It sounds weird, but spaghetti is typically a breakfast food in Haiti. In the U.S. it has transitioned to a lunch meal. If you can’t get this right, stick to boiled plantains and scrambled eggs for breakfast.
If you are cooking white rice, it better be with a side of black bean soup and we aren’t talking about cann beans. You better start off with dried beans and boil the hell out of those beans.
