Bean pot, winter food

Here is some real winter food, sausages and beans to help you through the winter.


Bean pot

1 red onion

3 garlic cloves

½ Spanish pepper

Handful of black olives

1 teaspoon paprika

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 tablespoon tomato paste

1 can tomato cube (or fresh tomatoes)

250 gram pork sausages

1 capsicum

250 gram red kidney beans

150 gram fava beans

Your favorite cranberry sauce

The night before, put the kidney beans in double amount of water. Cook them until almost soft. Cook the garden beans until almost done.

Cut the onion in half rings. Cut the garlic, pepper and the capsicum.

Put some oil in a heavy cooking pot and bake the sausages brown. Take them out and cut them into pieces ( they are easier to cut when baked on the outside then when fresh)

In the same pot, bake the onion, add the garlic, capsicum for 5 to 8 minutes. Add the tomato paste and paprika and bake some more. The tomato paste will have to smell sweet; then add the tomato cubes and the beans. Season generously with pepper and salt and add the oregano.

Cook everything in the tomato sauce until the beans and capsicum are soft. Add the black olives and serve with some small dashes of cranberry sauce on it and with some garlic bread on the side.

You can make an easy and fast garlic bread by toasting some slices of bread in the oven with olive oil, pepper and salt. When they are crunchy, just rub a halved garlic clove over the surface and’ klaar is kees’ that’s it.
