I had the

French beans with tomatoes

French beans with tomatoes (1)

already in mind, when the monthly featured ingredient was tomato at I♥CC. At that time I filled my lunchbox with tomoatoes and Joyce from Kitchen Flavours made this dish. I had some unused rainbow tomatoes and purple beans called „Blauhilde“B003DJC1RA*, they look dark green cooked, and prepared half the recipe below.

With some bread it was a wonderful lunch for two.

This dish is dedicated in honor of Kim Kim, one of the I♥CC hosts and her mother, who passed away. My deepest sympathy with Kim and her family. I wish much strength and courage in this difficult period.

French beans with tomatoes

Yield: 4 servings

French beans with tomatoes (2)

Tender green beans and garlicky tomatoes can be served as part of an al fresco spread, or with the meats at a barbecue, but even on its own with a good hunk of bread it’s a lovely supper or lunch dish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon rapeseed or olive oil; I used rapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 400 gram tin of chopped tomatoes, or 1 kg fresh tomatoes, blanched, skinned, deseeded and roughly chopped; I was lazy and skipped the deseeding step
  • 500 grams French beans, topped, tailed and cut into 4 – 5 cm lengths
  • sea salt
  • black pepper, freshly ground

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or frying pan, add the onion and sweat for at least 10 minutes, until soft but not coloured. Add the garlic and cook gently for another minute or two, then add the tomatoes and stir well. Stir in the beans, bring the mixture to a gentle simmer and season well. Turn down the heat, partly cover the pan and cook very gently, stirring frequently, for about 30 minutes until the beans are fully tender. If the mixture seems to be in danger of sticking, add a splash of water or stock. Serve warm or cold.

VARIATION: This could also made with runner beans. String and slice them lengthways through one of those clever little ‚zip‘ cutters, or string and slice diagonally before proceeding as above.

Geröstete Pariser Karotten mit Senf, Rosmarin und Honig

Es ist schon eine Weile her, dass ich die Pariser Karotten von Genuss aus Kronshagen bei den Marktschwärmern erstand.

Die kleine runde Pariser Karotte ist eine seltene Karotten-Art, die man heute nur noch in der Konservenindustrie kennt, denn das sind die kleinen Runden Möhrchen in der Dose. Prima, dass ich in den Genuss dieser schönen Karotten kam. Das Rezept lässt sich auch mit anderem Wurzelgemüse wie Pastinake, Sellerie, Schwarzwurzeln oder Steckrübe zubereiten. Die Zeit des Wintergemüses ist ja nicht mehr fern.

Chard and new potato curry

You know autumn is not far, when pumpkins, winter squashes and chard appear next to new potatoes at the weekly market or Food Assembly. I bought some multicoloured chard

bunter Mangold

and new potatoes to cook

Chard and new potato curry

Chard and new potato curry (1)

I have to admit, I’ll never be a huge fan of chard, but every now and then I’ll serve it, especially if it looks so beautiful. The sauce is spicy and delicous and convinced our son.

Chard and new potato curry

Yield: 4 servings

Chard and new potato curry (2)

This hearty curry is fantastic in late summer or early autumn. It can be made ahead, leave out the yoghurt and at it at the last minute just before serving.

Ingredients:

  • 500 grams Swiss chard; about
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil; I used rapeseed oil
  • 1 onion, halved and finely sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 3 cm piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3 cardamom pods, bashed
  • 350 grams new potatoes, quartered
  • 250 grams plain (full-fat) yoghurt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • a small bunch of coriander, roughly chopped; as always I used parsley
  • a small handful of almonds, cashews or pistachios, toasted and chopped; about 30 grams
  • sea salt
  • black pepper, freshly ground

ISBN: 978-1408812129

Instructions

  1. Separate the chard leaves from the stalks. Cut the stalks into 2-3cm pieces and roughly chop the leaves.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat, add the onion and fry until just golden. Meanwhile, pound the garlic, chilli and ginger together with a pinch of salt to a paste. Add to the onion and cook, stirring, for a couple of minutes. Tip in the rest of the spices and stir for a minute or two.
  3. Add the potatoes and chopped chard stalks and fry, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes, so that they are well coated with the spice mixture. Pour in about 400 ml water – enough to just cover the veg. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for lo-12 minutes until the potatoes are just tender. Add the chard leaves, stir and cook until just wilted.
  4. In a bowl, whisk together the yoghurt, tomato puree and some of the hot liquid from the curry. Remove the curry from the heat, stir in the yoghurt mixture,return to the heat and warm through very gently (if it gets too hot, the yoghurt will curdle). Stir in most of the coriander.
  5. Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. Scatter over the toasted nuts and remaining coriander, then serve with rice and naan or chapattis.

VARIATIONS
Spinach and new potato curry: Use 600 -700 grams spinach in place of the chard. Remove by tough stalks and add the leaves to the curry once the potatoes are done. Cook for a minute or two before adding the yoghurt mixture.
Winter kale and potato curry: Use maincrop potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized chunks, rather than new potatoes, and replace the chard with kale. Discard the kale stalks, roughly shred the leaves, and add them when the potatoes are nearly done. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until tender.
