A bit ago, I stumbled across a fun substitute for bread. Colombia has a corn bread culture that includes a very simple water and corn flour treat called the Arepa.
1 cup corn flour
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon oil or butter (I use olive oil)
Butter for the pan.
Mix the first three ingredients in a bowl with your hands.
Divide the dough into four parts. Pat each part into a flat “pancake” about ¼ of an inch thick.
Arepas are traditionally cooked on a grill, but they can be pan fried, cooked in the oven, or cooked on a sandwich maker. I pan fry.
Preheat the pan and melt the butter. Put the arepas in the pan and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
They can be eaten immediately as sandwich bread or alone as a snack, or they can be stored for later.
Yum!!!! (Arepa peanut butter and jelly sandwich.)
