Arroz con Judías y Nabos

Este delicioso arroz es uno de los más populares y posee un fuerte arraigo tradicional. Se suele consumir preferentemente en invierno, pues se caracteriza por ser muy contundente y con el que rápidamente entraremos en calor. Es un arroz meloso, de caldo espeso, pero que siempre queda suelto y entero.

La forma tradicional de cocinarlo es en calderos altos, sobre leña y con una cocción lenta y suave para que sus carnes y verduras queden muy tiernas, pero enteras.
