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.
