Are You From Puerto Rico And Vegetarian?

Posted Mar 10 2009 3:37pm

If you’re from Puerto Rico and a vegetarian or vegan, chime in as i want to get a resource page going on the various Caribbean foods available.


I was born in Chicago, IL but both my parents are from Puerto Rico. One thing i remember about my mom’s cooking is rice, beans, and a host of yummy root vegetables from PR.

Which root vegetables?

Yuca a/k/a Cassava, then there are green plantains, batata, yautia, llame and a host of others. All yummy healthy and 100% vegetarian.

I want to get a resource page going on the different vegetables and fruits from Puerto Rico, complete with nutrition details. I have to admit i will have to do research on this, as i have lost touch with my roots and don’t know. Yes, I deserve a wet noodle beating for this disregard.

Please chime in and contribute your ideas, tips, and ingredient list of foods and recipes native to the Isla.
