Garbanzo Bean Soup as we referred
to as PO-TA-HEH was made with garbanzo beans ( I use white beans
4 cans northern beans or
garbanzo beans (chick
1/2 head cabbage
chorizo (sliced in 1/2 inch rounds)
1 large diced onion
1 large bay leaf
1 cups cut up calabaza (firm squash)
1 cup cut up potatoe
salt/pepper to taste
2 tbs. minced garlic
2-3 tsp. Bijol
(If chorizo isn't available, use ham)
Brown chorizo and add onions bay leaf, garlic. Add a little
olive oil if needed for the saute-ing.
Add potatoes, calabaza, water to reach about 2 inches above
ingredients in pot. Add bijol, salt/pepper. Bring to a boil, Cover
and reduce to low heat and cook until potatoes are done. Add cabbage
and continue cooking until cabbage is done.
I like mine served over rice and I would add a couple of dashes of
vinegar on my po-ta-heh with plantains on the side.
