Acaraje – This Brazilian take on falafel uses black eyed peas which symbolize prosperity.
Arroz con Coco y Lentaje- Call some moolah to yourself with this dish from Colombia. The lentils symbolize coins so me thinks the more you use the more u get?!?!?!
This dish looks as good as it tastes but beware of the beets…they make a bloody mess! Peeling them can be tricky…I found that the best way was to take a paring knife and just cut off the skins.
