We asked some of our friends what their favorite homestyle dishes were, and they gave us some choices that got us hungry just by reading the descriptions! One thing is true—it pays to have friends who come from different parts of the world. Variety really is the spice of life. This month we’re presenting two of these international comfort foods, with a promise that we will be featuring more in the future. Meanwhile, enjoy these!
From Greece, this savory pie is made from crispy layers of phyllo dough and filled with spinach and feta cheese—a wonderful appetizer that’s easier to make than you think!
From El Salvador, pupusas are a fried flatbread made from corn or flour meal and stuffed with cheese and beans or meat. It’s the national dish of El Salvador!
Phyllo (or filo) dough is thinly spread and layered, giving this savory pastry a crisp and flaky texture. Roll into a decorative spiral, slice and serve.
Greek Spanakopita makes an excellent appetizer. Make these in tiny, bite-sized triangle shapes that are guaranteed to be irresistible and tempting.
Pupusa + Chicharrón
The Spanish influence is strong with these pupusas stuffed with pork chicharrón. The rich pork taste makes a great mouthwatering filling.
Pupusa + Roast Chicken
For a milder, but no less tasty pupusa, this roast chicken filling is a nice change. Pupusas come in so many flavors, no wonder they’re so popular!
Why do we call it comfort food? Because there are certain kinds of foods that remind us of our connections to family and friends that make us feel happy. And we can’t think of a better excuse to cook, if it’s going to make us happy! Zojirushi has several recipes you can try that qualify as comfort foods, and they’re pretty worldly at the same time. See if you can connect with these dishes and imagine visiting the places where they came from—food is the universal language, right?
