Almojábanas: Cheese and Timeless Green Lentils Rolls
Almojábana is a type of bread roll made with cheese and corn, and is found in countries like Colombia. This recipe originates from the medieval era of the Spanish Moors, and made its way to the New World where corn was added. For an update to this centuries-old dish, we added Timeless Green Lentils. The almojábans are Gluten Free!
