Hi my name is David
I am going to do a new recipe.
Chickpea stew with squid
How to make chickpea stew with squid
A recipe for those who really want to eat in the winter. It has an intense taste and helps fight the cold thanks to its strength. Recipes for legumes usually have these characteristics and are therefore more suitable for the cold seasons, although in recent years there have been cold alternatives in the form of salad. Chickpea, bean and lentil salads are common on the day’s menus.
These chickpeas with squid are ideal for everyday meals, although this is not their only purpose. They are also perfect as a recipe for tupperware, for all those part-time people who have to eat out, but don’t want to / can do it in restaurants. They can even be made with chickpeas from a pot, although, of course, will not be close to the same. I say this in the sense of not having to use the pot and the time, which is significantly reduced.
Ingredients for 8 people
1 – Cook chickpeas in a saucepan
First of all, we need to soak the chickpeas the night before. The next morning we will start by putting water for heating in the pot. When it boils, add the bay leaves, one of the peeled onions, the drained chickpeas and a handful of salt. It will take them approximately 15 minutes to cook, although everyone knows their pot and the time may vary.
2 – Fry the garlic and onion
In the meantime, we will make the American sauce. Cut the remaining onion and garlic into slices (after peeling them). Then put them to fry in a pan to a certain depth, with olive oil covering the bottom and a little salt.
3 – Add red pepper and fried tomato
When the onion starts to become translucent, we will add the chopped red pepper. In which it is made, we will add hot red pepper and fried tomato.
4 – Add water and mix the sauce
Stir a little and add a stream of water. We stir again and pour everything into a vessel where we can dare without putting everything like Christ. Crush the sauce well and return it to the casserole.
5 – Add the squid
Then we will cut the squid into pieces. They do not have to be small, because later in the stew they will shrink a lot. Then add them to the sauce and soak them well with it.
6 – Combine chickpeas with the sauce
After 5 minutes of cooking the squid, add the chickpeas with some of the cooking broth. If it is too much, we will have to cook them for too long with the sauce, risking them to fall apart. We will cook chickpeas with sauce for 15-20 minutes.
7 – Top up the chickpea stew
In case the sauce is still very liquid after this time, dissolve a teaspoon of cornstarch in a little water and add it to the sauce. Stir and you will soon see how the sauce has thickened.
8 – Introduce a dish
Once the stew is done, we will let it rest for a few more minutes with the casserole covered. Then serve chickpeas with squid in a plate to bring it to the table and enjoy a suitable spoon.
