A side dish for 4p or a main dish for 2p with a long lasting fabulous smell while cooking, and probably a possible ‘after smell’ in the following hours😏.Healthy food is often combined with some extra flatulence. For certain people it’s embarrassing, for other people it’s a perfect natural function of our intestines. Even being in quarantine, my advice is : just let it go, although warning your environment in case it happens is accepted as being more ‘polite’.Anyway, start the evening before. Soak 150 grams of dried white beans in a large amount of water for at least 8h. Drain. Put them back in the pan with a large amount of salted water, a few bay leaves and a drizzle of olive oil. Boil them until al dente ( approximately 40-60 minutes). Drain.In the meanwhile, slice 2 large tomatoes, preferably ‘coeur de boeuf’, in quarters. Slice 1 large untreated lemon in quarters. Put in an oven dish. Spread salt and olive oil. Roast in the oven at 180° for approximately 40-60 minutes.During the same time, clean 2 baby artichokes. Slice thinly. Chop and fry 4 garlic cloves in a drizzle of olive oil. Add the artichokes and 1 tablespoon of dried basil. Bake for 5-10 minutes until crispy. Add pepper. Store on a plate.Use the same pan. Pour 1 small can of anchovies and the oil of the can in the pan. Add 2 quarters of the oven roasted tomato. Melt on a low fire. Add 2 table spoons of cider of sherry vinegar (or more), 1 teaspoon of sweet paprika powder and a lot of black pepper. Mix with the beans and some fresh chopped parsley.Spread the beans and artichokes in between tomatoes and lemons. Serve. Squeeze the lemon juice on the ingredients.Perfect meal after a stormy day😉.
