Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Cod Kedgeree

Kedgeree is the anglicized version of an Indian lentil & rice dish known as khichari. This dish came to England and Ireland during the British Raj. Colonials posted in India, returned to the Isles with envelopes of spices and mixes, and tried their best to recreate dishes they had enjoyed in India with home grown local ingredients. Traditional Anglo Kedgeree makes good use of left over rice and smoked haddock, but this versatile dish can be eaten hot or cold, for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and other fish can be used such as tuna or salmon. Since this is a comfort dish of ingenuity and availability, I decided to use leftover cod fillets and South Indian Curry Powder. Here's the recipe for my version of Kedgeree:
