The spoon dishes, the most typical
There are two spoon dishes that every visitor to the Vega Baja has to try. One is cooked with balls and another is a rice specialty, the crust.
The stew with balls is eaten all year round, but it is also a dish to enjoy with the family. The balls are meatballs made with blood and meat of turkey, egg, parsley, garlic and pine nuts; This well-stirred dough is cooked slowly with potatoes, chickpeas, vegetables, seasoned with saffron and salt. It is a delicacy for the good palates that at Hotel La Laguna Spa & Golf we include, of course, in the menu.
Crusted rice is a typical rice dish from the Vega Baja. The rice is usually added white sausage, red sausage, white and botifarrón. Once cooked and before finishing cooking in the oven, cover with beaten egg. It is usually cooked with rabbit and in some areas it has chickpeas.
And for dessert … almojábanas!
