This is what Ari had for dinner at Chez Bongoqueen tonight! He liked it so much we wired for the recipe! Here it is, courtesy of the adorable-yet-saucy Anita… Ari said it was DELICIOUS. Lulu said ‘It had butter beans!’.
:: Magic Beans sans GiantMay 5, 2010
3 tins of butter beans
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1/2 jar readymade pasta sauce or somesuch. I also added some left over salsa we had in the fridge
3 cloves garlic
decent shake of smokey paprika
2 curry leaves
couple of shakes of italianey herbs
squirt BBQ sauce
decent splosh of tabasco
a large squirtful of soy sauce
two pinches of sugar
two rashers of vegetarian bacon, chopped (but not pre-fried, I let it stew with the rest)
And normally I put in some onion too, but we were out.
Fry the garlic and herbs up, add the rest when they’re done. Stew for a while and let everything hang out and become used to the other bits. Slop onto some rice. Top with lots of shredded tasty cheese. (And jalapenos for the grown ups)
