Hello, arepa lovers! We are super excited for this recipe, it is a gluten free version of one of our favorite Venezuelan dishes.
Tequeños are always part of any Venezuelan celebration and this recipe is a mix between tequeños and the gluten free arepas that you know and love. Let’s start!
- 1 cup of maize flour
- beaten egg
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 tbsp of brown sugar
- A pinch of salt
- Fresh cheese, cut in little sticks
- Oil, to fry them
*add to tbsp of oil to the dough if you prefer to cook them in the air fryer
- Mix flour, egg, water, sugar and salt (this is where you would add the oil). Use your hands to get the perfect consistency, a flexible dough that does not stick to your hands.
- Take a small amount and form a little ball. Press it until it’s thin, put the stick of cheese in the middle and wrap the dough around it.
- Fry it for about 4 minutes in hot oil, medium heat.
