Executive Chef John McConnell of Clif Family Winery’s Bruschetteria Food Truck shows us a unique take on Cuban-style “Arroz con Frijoles.” In this version he braises whole toasted almonds as the “beans” until they are soft, a process that takes 5-6 hours. He serves the almond beans with crispy plantains and mojo sauce. Find the recipe at: E2%80%9Carroz-con-frijoles%E2%80%9D-mojo-and-crispy-plantains
