Venezuelan Plantain Sandwich Launching
Enzo came up with this sandwich last year to utilize a huge black bean harvest, one of the first of its size in the state. Enzo’s dad is Venezuelan and taught him to make black beans with lots of lime and cilantro. We’ve been selling this spread at Whole Foods and it’s been really popular.
The sandwich also has fried plantains, a local cabbage slaw (dressing made with cilantro and lime), and crispy rice on top.
We’ll have this at all locations starting today. If you try it let us know what you think by commenting below. If you want to learn more about the farmer who grew these beans, just google Andrea Stanley. She’s one of the heros of local food in Western Mass.
