Columbia Restaurant Good Rice image

This rice goes with everything and has much more flavor than plain white rice. The recipe comes from the famed Columbia Restaurant which started in Ybor City, FL and now has locations throughout Florida. Easy to make and very flavorful; I especially like the texture...not sticky, not greasy, just right.

  • In a wide saucepan, heat the coconut milk until simmering. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer, stirring often, until the coconut milk has reduced to the point where it becomes a thick paste and the solid coconut pieces begin to turn a deep golden brown, 50-60 minutes. (As it reduces, you will hit a point, once it is nearly reduced completely, where the coconut oil will come out of the milk and the mixture will start to separate into clear liquid (fat) and white parts (coconut solids). If, once your coconut milk has nearly completely reduced, you don’t see this separation; your coconut milk has too many stabilizers in it to let the fat separate out. Add 2 Tbsp vegetable oil-- or better yet, coconut oil-- to the reduced coconut milk and continue cooking until the coconut solids turn golden brown.)
  • Once you have a golden brown coconut paste, add the rice, sugar, and salt. Turn the heat to medium high and continue to cook until the rice grains begin to turn golden brown, 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the water carefully. (Oil has a boiling point MUCH higher than water. So when you add the water it will sputter and steam. BE CAREFUL!) Stir to combine.
  • Return the pan to the heat and bring the mixture to a simmer. Then, reduce the heat to low, cover and cook the rice for 15 minutes.

  • Once the liquid has evaporated, you'll see this pulp on the bottom. Continue to cook, stirring frequently. We need the water to evaporate completely out of this pulp, as this will what transforms into titoté.
  • You'll know you're there when you see the oil separate out of the pulp, and it starts to turn golden brown. Stir continuously to keep it from sticking and burning. Once it's dark golden, crumbly, and no longer sticking to the bottom, the titoté is done.

  • Ajiaco (Chicken and Potato Stew) A hearty chicken stew especially beloved in the city of Bogota, ajiaco contains chicken pieces, potatoes, and corn on the cob and traditionally appears on the table garnished with avocado, sour cream, and capers.
  • Sofrito (Tomato Sauce) Frequently appearing in Mediterranean, Caribbean, and Hispanic cuisines, sofrito is a thick, savory paste typically made from a blend of tomatoes, garlic, onions, and fresh herbs.
  • Pandebono (Cheese Bread) This simple, cheesy pandebono uses two kinds of starch: tapioca and cornmeal. You can use precooked cornmeal called masarepa that's often used to make arepas, regular cornmeal, or even a special mix for making these rolls called harina de pandebono.
  • Arepas (Corn Cakes) Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, mild corn arepas use a special cornmeal labeled masarepa, or masa al instante. Try them warm, smeared with butter and honey or jam, or as a side for soaking up the juices from just about any meat or bean dish.
  • Queso Fresco (Fresh Cow's Milk Cheese) With a dry, crumbly texture and a tangy flavor, queso fresco appears in all sorts of Hispanic cuisines. Much like feta, it crumbled rather than melting into goo, so cooks often add it right before serving it with dishes like arepas, empanadas, or over the top of casseroles, egg dishes, or really anywhere you'd use a mild cheese.
  • Hogao (Tomato and Onion Salsa) A savory mix of tomatoes, onions, garlic, cilantro, and other ingredients that ​get sautéed until the vegetables go soft and fragrant, hogao makes a versatile condiment for lots of dishes.
  • Carne Asada (Citrus-Marinaded Steak) Literally "grilled steak," carne asada turns flank or skirt steak into a tender, succulent dish with a simple citrus marinade.
  • Empanadas with Black Beans and Corn. With a mixture of black beans and corn folded into tender pastry, empanadas make a delicious handheld meal or hearty snack.
  • Empanadas with Beef and Potato Filling. The outer crust of these empanadas is made with cornmeal (the same one you'd use for arepas) has a uniquely Colombian flair, as does the stewed beef (or pork) and potatoes filling seasoned with hogao, a cooked tomato salsa.
  • Spinach and Ricotta Empanadas. Garlicky spinach and ricotta cheese create a savory filling for these simple vegetarian empanadas. They also freeze and reheat well, so make a big batch while you have all of the ingredients ready.

  • Colombian Fried Fish. This Colombian recipe uses a small tropical fish called mojarra. It’s typically found in South America and the Caribbean. So if you can’t get your hands on it, try tilapia or red snapper.
  • Colombian Coffee. Coffee lovers, here comes Colombia’s version of the classic hot drink. Colombians like it sweet and light, with a nutty finish. The recipe requires aguapanela for the brewing process, which brings a wonderfully sweet taste to the coffee.
