My Haitian Plate: Lalo Legume Fey


My mom made Lalo  legume (fey) I was so happy I took a picture haha. That's one of my favorite food ever.     This stuff takes forever to make ... I almost never have the patience to make it but as a proud Artibonitienne it's essential that one knows how to make this dish properly or so I've heard lol
Artibonitienne: mostly means from the region above
( BTW All 5 of the A l'Haitienne crew are from Saint-Marc and Gonaives)

. It's an Artibonite staple (White Rice, Beans, and Lalo).
This dish is hearty and filling. It naturally contains a good amount of iron and protein as much as it is tasty.
 If you are interested to learn more about this dish (the recipe and better pictures) comment so that I can work on it. Otherwise, enjoy!

  1. Looks delish. Could you post a recipe, please? I've been craving some lalo badly! Unfortunately, I live in a place where I can't just go to a Haitian restaurant. So, if I'm having a craving, I've gotta brewing out the pots and pans. :-) Thanks!
