A Spoonful of Sofrito: Dominican Sweet Cream of beans dessert!

A Spoonful of Sofrito: A Pinch of advice that will add a lot of flavor to your life.

Dominican Sweet Cream of beans dessert!

Sofrito Lovers,

Have you ever tasted Dominican Habichuelas con Dulce or Dominican Sweet Cream of Beans?  If your answer is no, then drop everything you're doing and focus, because this dessert will change your life.

Being blessed with Dominican friends, family, and living in a Dominican community, I've had the honor/blessing/privilege of enjoying this amazing dessert a lot.  Habichuelas con Dulce is made by combining beans, Caribbean sweet potato, milk, cinnamon, and a few other spices and ingredients together in a pot and cooked for an hour or so. 

Some of you might be thinking that a bean based dessert sounds weird, but many cultures use beans for their desserts.  Go to Chinatown and you won't be able to count the different desserts made with red or black bean paste, which I highly recommend!

Over the holidays, a co-worker made some Habichuelas con Dulce and it was so good I decided to look up its recipe!  Posted on, this recipe is easy to follow and makes a nice serving size.  Check it out and please, please, please, go taste for yourself!  ¡Buen Provecho!
