Here, as election fever grips the peninsula, the gazpachomOnk presents another radical red dish - popular amongst certain latin American and Caribbean countries, favoured for its colour, availability and of course its spiciness. The whole meal takes no more than about 10 mins to make, or the same time it takes to chant something accusatory outside your local Casta headquarters: Read on for the complete radical recipe:
And so, to the humble bean - that although loved and cherished by many cultures across the globe - should be cooked and prepared with a warning: beans can be pretty toxic, especially red kidney beans. So you may want to play it safe and instead of soaking and cooking them, buy the jars in which they come already cooked. Here in Spain, these can be found in most supermarkets at a reasonable price. Obviously its cheaper to cook your own, but do take care in boiling them for the mandatory time periods.
You'll also need for this radical recipe:
- Olive oil
- Dried chillis
- Fruit juice
- Optional red wine.
- Green salad leaves for colouring
- Rice or bread to accompany the beans. (start cooking rice now! As the bean dish only takes 10 mins).
There is nothing wrong with ingredients that revolt in a radical recipe...
Oh...and do make a lot, because despite appearances, its got a catchy taste and should there be any left tomorrow, it'll make a superb dip.
