Steamed carrots and zucchini are the base for this creamy cheese dish. Panela cheese, which is a Mexican cow's milk cheese, is marinated in a poblano pepper sauce before being briefly fried in a skillet. This causes the cheese to not only absorb the flavors of the pepper sauce but also become molten and super creamy. A sprinkling of spinach and a drizzle of olive oil add the perfect finishing touch to this simple dish.

Ingredients

  • 4 pieces cheese (panela, about 1 cm thick)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper sauce (poblano)
  • olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove (. crushed)
  • 2 carrots (peeled and cut into small slices)
  • 2 zucchinis (cut into slices)
  • spinach (washed and chopped)

Directions

  1. Place the cheese in a bowl and cover it with the poblano pepper sauce, garlic, and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Let it sit for 1 hour
  2. Steam the carrots above a pot of boiling water. Once they become soft, add the zucchini. Cover the pot and cook for for 2 minutes.
  3. Heat up a frying pan on high heat and cook the panela cheese for 1 minute on each side.
  4. Serve the cheese on the carrots and zucchini, then add the spinach on top of the cheese, and pour olive oil on everything and serve.
