MARROW WITH BEANS AND CORN
Serves 3 adults as a main course, keeps well and can be eaten cold for lunch
the next day in pitta or whatever.
1 large onion, chopped 1 or 2 cloves garlic
1tsp dried basil 1tsp dried oregano
4 ozs sweetcorn kernels 15 oz can tomatoes(undrained)
8 ozs any cooked beans (kidney beans look good in this dish)
1lb marrow, not too firm 2 tblsp tomato puree
This is, apparently, a south american dish. I thought it tasted delicious and
looked especially good.
1. In a large saucepan, saute the onions as you wish :-), until softened.
2. Meanwhile, dice the marrow into fairly large cubes (1' ?).
3. Add tomatoes, puree, garlic and herbs to the onions and simmer for ten
minutes (uncovered to thicken the sauce).
4. Add the marrow and cook until tender, from 10-20 minutes depending on the
size of the marrow cubes.
5. When the marrow is *almost* cooked, add the beans and the sweetcorn and cook
until the marrow is ready and the mixture is piping hot. Eat sprinkled with
loads of freshly milled black pepper.
NOTE. This is really good when the sauce is nice and thick. If you do need to
add water during cooking, keep it to a minimum.
I eat this on it's own, but it would go well on brown rice.
