Simplicity wins again, kids! In this case Colombian-style cheese arepas, fortified with a full can of cannellini beans and a big handful of cheeeeese! Everybody loves these guys. You've gotta check them out if you don't have them in your line-up. Too easy. Plus a little spiralized salad saute on the side? This is a veggie-only hot zucchini 'salad' with serious style.

White Bean Arepas With Spiral Veggie Sauté [Vegan]


  • 2 1/2 cups of masarepa
  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 15-ounce can white beans of your choice
  • Spiralized veggies of your choice



  1. Mix the masarepa with water, salt, and liquid smoke and let it  sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Then add the remaining ingredients and shape into 4-inch diameter pucks.
  3. Grill them on medium (around 350°F.) for about 5 minutes per side.
  4. Serve warm with hot sauce over sautéed spiralized veggies.





Fresh, original, delicious vegan food that can be made while balancing the demands of a busy lifestyle. I'm a full-time teacher, father, and ultra-runner obsessed with vegan food, recipe development, and photography. I write my blog to share food-related experiences while living as an expatriate in Nicaragua. I work really hard to produce the most original, delicious vegan food that I can while balancing the demands of a busy lifestyle. Veganism is a way of life that demands exposure!
