Špageti s bobom i rajčicama (Fava Beans and Tomato Spaghetti)

bob-rajcice-thumbnail(English version below)
Bob je jedna od onih namirnica koju je totalna gnjavaža čistiti, ali okus, mekoća i duljina kuhanja nadoknađuju muke :) Htjela sam ga pripremiti u umaku od svježih rajčica, kojima je počela sezona. Probala sam jednu rajčicu, bila je tako mirisna i puna okusa, pa sam probala još jednu. Za večeru sam narezala još, i na kraju su rajčice nestale prije nego su imale šansu postati dio ovog  finog jela. A poslužili su odlično i pelati :)

Špageti s bobom i rajčicama
(za 3 osobe)
Umak od rajčice
1 žlicamaslinovog ulja
2češnja češnjaka
400 gpelata
50 mlvina
prstohvatsuhog bosiljka, timijana
1 žličicasmeđeg šećera
sol, papar
Bob
500 gmahuna boba (ili 250 – 300 g očišćenog od mahuna)
posluživanjeribani sir Grana Padano ili slično
Špageti
voda, sol

Upute:
Na zagrijanom maslinovom ulju vrlo kratko popržite nasjeckani češnjak, potom dodajte grubo narezane pelate. Posolite i pirjajte na srednjoj vatri oko 45 minuta. Pred kraj dodajte timijan,  bosiljak, papar. Ako je umak pre kiseo, dodajte i šećer.

Dok se umak kuha, odvojite zrnje boba iz mahuna. Zrnje stavite u kipuću vodu i kuhajte 10 minuta. Potom ga stavite u hladnu vodu da se ohladi. Ohlađenom zrnju očistite opnu (ja to radim tako da dok držim zrno noktom napravim rez s jedne strane zrna, a drugom rukom istisnem zrno kroz taj rez). Pogledajte dolje video s uputama za guljenje (1:38).

Kad je umak gotov, umiješajte bob i prokuhajte još minutu.

Poslužite s kuhanim špagetama. Pospite ribanim sirom Grana Padano ili sličnim.

Ukoliko jelo spremate nekom velikom mesoljupcu, u umak na kraju možete dodati preprženu slaninu, kobasicu, pršut…

Bob u umaku od rajčica





















Fava beans are one of those ingredients that are pain in the neck to prepare for cooking! But once this is done, they give you so much pleasure enjoying soft, tasty beans after only several minutes of cooking. I wanted to prepare this dish with fresh tomatoes, the season has just begun! And then I tasted one, it was rich in smell and taste, so delicious. And then I tasted another one. And then I sliced even more in the evening. And then – they were all gone :) What the heck, pelati did the job with this dish just fine as well :)

Fava Beans and Tomato Spaghetti
(Serves 3)
Tomato Sauce

2garlic cloves
400 gpelati (canned peeled tomatoes)
50 mlwine
pinchdried basil, thyme
1 tspbrown sugar
salt, pepper
Fava Beans

Directions:
Heat olive oil in medium pot and then add finely chopped garlic. Fry stirring for about 15 seconds and then add roughly chopped tomatos. Add salt and simmer on medium heat for about 45 minutes. (Meanwhile prepare the beans.) Few minutes before the end add thyme, basil and pepper. If the sauce is too sour, add one tsp of brown sugar.

Remove the beans from the pods. Put the pods in boiling water and cook for 10 minutes. Put cooked beans in cold water to cool. Let the beans cool, then peel the outer skin from each of them. See below a video that shows how to peel the beans (starts at 1:38).

When the sauce is done, add peeled beans and bring to boil just to warm the beans.

Serve with cooked spaghetti. Sprinkle with grated Grana Padano cheese or similar.

If you want to make this dish more appealing to a person who is a great meat-lover, you can add to sauce fried pancetta, sausage or prosciutto.
