Vegan Pupusas recipe

How much do you know about El Salvador? This small Central American country does not receive the attention it deserves. Salvadorans are extremely friendly, warm and welcoming. Your heart will feel like exploding once you experience the kindness of Salvadoreans. I was born in New York and my family roots are from El Salvador and we're filled with hearts of Gold. Pupusas is a famous salvadorean dish. I decided to mix my veganism to an authentic dish. This recipe is very healthy and will only serve 2 pupusas. Enjoy <3

1/2 cup of quinoa flour

1/2 cup of maseca

Quarter of a cup of cooked red beans

Vegan cheese

Non stick pan


Pour 1/2 cup of quinoa Flour in bowl

Add 1/2 cup of maseca in bowl

*the idea is to get the consistency of play dough

Once you have reached the desired consistency, you grabbed a piece of dough and you roll into a tennis ball size.

Place it in between two pieces of seran wrap.

Flatten it with your hand until you get the shape of a tortilla.

Remove it from the seran wrap, place it in your hand.

Place beans and cut up cheese in a separate bowl

Smash beans and cheese until you reach a paste consistency

Place ingredients in the center of the dough.

Fold the edges onto the center until it’s closed and then flatten it with your hand until you have obtain a quarter inch of height.

Continue this process till it’s golden.
