The Healthy Cuban: Carne con Sweet Papas and Brown Rice

Trying to balance health and The Project isn't easy. So I've taken to running, to help my Weight Watchers POINTS plan. And in order to keep running, I've got to put better fuel in the tank, so I dreamt of Carne con Papas, with a twist.

I know that the tried-and-true Carne con Papas is always a hit, so for The Healthy Cuban version, I switched out the potatoes for sweet potatoes and the Jasmine rice (ack!) for brown rice.

The Carne con Sweet Papas was a big success. The Killer Rice without Jasmine? Well, we'll need to work a little more on that. If anyone has any good brown rice recipes to share, please send them my way.

  1. Hi! I found your blog a while ago, I'm glad you are posting again :)
    I'm also Cuban and I love that Nitza Villapol book (the old one lol) Whenever I'm stumped with a recipe that my mom didn't show me how to do, I turn to this book and it has never failed me.
    For brown rice, I follow Alton Brown's recipe


  2. Thanks for the tip - I will definitely check out the recipe. These days, I've been working mostly on posting live through my Facebook page (http://facebook.com/lacocinadechristina) and only have a chance to come back to post the full recipe with a little free time. Hopefully I'll be able to carve out some time soon to catch up more. Thanks for following - much appreciated!
