Asturian Bean Stew
Fabada AsturianaThe central component of Fabada, the famous Asturian stew, is the large white bean called fabes. A major Asturian crop, the fabe boasts a thin skin that gives way to rich, buttery flesh. When stewed, it soaks in the surrounding flavors while adding a comforting creaminess.

Save Time and Add Flavor with GOYA® Sofrito
Sofrito - a puree of tomatoes, onions, green peppers, cilantro and garlic - is used as a cooking base in many Spanish dishes; like rice, soups and stews. But washing, chopping and cooking down the vegetables can be time-consuming. Instead of hassling, simply open a jar of GOYA® Sofrito and add the fresh-tasting mixture to your favorite dishes. Then enjoy the authentic flavors you love, without the work.
