One of the yummiest dishes I had in Tobago was the ‘red beans’ at a little beach restaurant on Pigeon Point. I have no idea what was in that fab recipe but I made this as a side to complement my Stew Chicken. A very tasty dish that would work well as a side with any protein, simple, cheap and quick a good recipe to have on hand.
1 small deep base saucepan
1 hand blender chopper attachment
1 tin of kidney beans in water
1 lrg pre made roasted red pepper
1/2 tsp xylitol (optional)
1 stalk of fresh thyme
Good crack of black pepper
Method to the madness
Place the onion and pepper in the chopper and blitz until you get a fine dice, almost a pulp
Heat the saucepan to a medium heat and sauté the mixture for 1-2 mins
Add in the whole tin of beans, leaves from the thyme stalk and black pepper
Heat until the beans are warm in the middle and the liquid is thick and sticky, it should take about 10 mins
Taste for seasoning, serve along side your fav protein or as a delish snack. ENJOY!
