Fregola with vegetables: the vegetarian alternative to try today – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

Fregola with vegetables: the vegetarian alternative to try today

Today’s recipe, which as always starts from a classic, is the vegetable fregola.

Beloved for its versatility, Sardinian fregola, also known as “fregula”, is obtained by kneading semolina flour for a long time with water and salt with very rapid movements in order to obtain small crumbs which are then toasted in the oven.

Thanks to its round shape and compact structure, it is the perfect ingredient to enhance meat and fish sauces, the most common being those with mussels or clams or shellfish.

What few people know is that fregola has an ancient history, and spread in Sardinia thanks to commercial exchanges between the Phoenicians, Punics and Carthaginians, but as there is no certain evidence that can support this thesis, it cannot be ruled out that it is a product born on our wonderful island.

In this version, spring vegetables such as peas, courgettes, asparagus and onion accompany the fregola in a dish to be enjoyed hot, but also warm.

Chickpea cacciucco, the veg version of the Tuscan soup – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

Chickpea cacciucco, the veg version of the Tuscan soup

If we say chickpea cacciucco, to some it might seem like heresy. But is not so. The origins of the caciucco are lost among myths and legends: the typical Livorno fish soup was initially part of the poor cuisine, but over time the term “cacciucco” has taken on a meaning of “mixture” and for this reason there are several variations: of meat, game, fish and also legumes. The ingredients of the traditional cacciucco alla livornese originally included waste fish, but over time the recipe has evolved and today it is also possible to find shellfish and more valuable varieties of fish.

Then, there’s the chickpea cacciucco, the Tuscan soup based on chickpeas and chard that we offer you today. It is a version based on chickpeas where these super protein legumes are cooked in a broth of tomato and red wine, celery, carrot, onion, garlic and sage – as in the traditional recipe. We also added chard, but you can also use spinach or kale, if you prefer their flavor.

Certain that your friends and family will do an encore tasting, we let you get to work with this chickpea cacciucco.
