Who said that for a comforting autumn kitchen you need long cooking? Here is the smart solution thanks to the recipes of La Cucina Italiana for Edison
The cuisine of autumn is that of soups, warm and comforting, in which to sink the spoon on a rainy day. Too bad that many consider them too long to prepare: wrong! Slow cooking is not so slow if you use the right tools. Instead of falling back on canned vegetables, use this pressure cooker and cheap dried legumes for this recipe: you will discover a result with a decidedly superior taste, for a really low-cost dish. To make it elegant and complete, just play with two legumes, grated lime and the touch of a few eggs. Even slow cooking can become fast, practical and clever thanks to the recipes of La Cucina Italiana for Edison – which has been creating energy for over 135 years and teaches us to use it to the fullest, without wasting or saving. One tablespoon at a time, as with this recipe.
Ingredients for 4 people
60 g of dried borlotti beans
60 g of dried cannellini beans
60 g of dried lentils
60 g of dried red lentils
60 g of dried chickpeas
60 g of dried peas
60 g of dried beans
60 g of dried soy beans
White wine vinegar
4 slices of pillow
Preparation of legume soup
Soak dried pulses overnight.
Put the legumes in a pressure cooker with water just to cover their volume. The pot must not be full and it is necessary to remain abundantly below the maximum level indicated since the legumes being cooked produce a foam capable of clogging the valve of the pressure cooker.
Close the pot and when it whistles count 25 minutes.
After the necessary time, first open the valve, then the pot and separate the legumes. Blend half of it with the juice of ½ lime. Season with salt.
Preparation of the dish
Prepare a sauce with the shallot and a drop of oil. Let it brown slowly and, in order not to burn it, finish cooking with a tablespoon of broth or water. Then put aside.
Take a pot and put a piece of parchment paper on it, then the pillow and then another sheet of parchment paper with a weight on it. Put the pan on medium heat for about 2 minutes. Turn off and let it rest.
For the little egg
Put a saucepan of water on the heat with ½ cup of white wine vinegar and a pinch of salt.
Boil, then with a whisk create a reel, apart break the egg in a glass, whole, and let it slide in the water in the center of the reel. Cook over low heat for 3 minutes.
Drain with a slotted spoon and clean it in the case of excess albumen.
To finish the dish
Pour a ladle of cream of legumes and then a ladle of soup, place the egg on it a little and then over the crispy bacon. Finish the dish with a grating of lime zest.
