Ingredients

FOR COOKING THE BEANS

TO RE-FRY THE BEANS

  • 2 tbsp high quality plant oil
  • 1 medium brown onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp Chilli vary to desired heat
  • 1 tsp cumin ground
  • 1 tsp oregano dried
  • 1/2 Fresh squeezed lime juice or lemon
  • pinch salt
  • pinch black pepper cracked

THE GARNISHES

  • 1 tbsp corriander leaf chopped
  • 1 tbsp preserved jalapeno whole or diced
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 bell pepper diced

Instructions

COOK THE BEANS (or use 500g pre-cooked or canned beans). I cook the beans in large 500g batches then use half and put half in freezer in the original bag to use later.

  • Add the beans to a pot with 1 litre of stock. Add half the Cumin, Oregano and Chilli. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to simmer for 1 ot 1½ hours or until soft.

RE-FRY THE BEANS

  • Heat 1 tablespoonof the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté 5 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and sauté another minutes or two.
  • Add in the borlotti beans, veggie stock, chili, cumin and oregano, and mix well. Continue cooking until the mixture reaches a simmer.
  • Remove from the heat and use a potato masher or a wooden spoon to mash the beans. Keep mashing to your preferred texture. You can puree in a food processor to make them really smooth but I prefer to do this manually.
  • Stir in the remaining tablespoon of oil. Taste and season the beans with lime juice, salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve warm, topped with any garnishes you might like.
