In these cold days we feel like eating stews and hot dishes, don’t we?
This is a comfort stew dish with a thick and delicious sauce, like those ones our grandmas used to cook, but we will prepare it without fat 😉
So we can eat a good plate of it, getting good protein (squid), vitamins, minerals, fibre… and if we serve it with brown rice we will have a perfectly balanced meal.
For 2-3 persons:
4 big squid -cut in rings (like calamari about 500 gr.)
2 ripe tomatoes
½ red bell pepper
1 small zucchini
1 tablespoon ground almonds
a touch of milk (it can also be vegetable milk: oat, soya, rice…)
salt, spices: black pepper, oregano, basil, garlic powder…
Wash and mince the vegetables. I use a blender to get the texture of a “gazpacho”.
Put the veggies in a pan and add salt and the spices (to taste).
Add the rings of squid (calamari).
Add the ground almonds and a touch of milk.
Mix it from time to time to avoid it sticking at the bottom of the pan.
Let it cook at low heat for 30-40 min. until the squid is tender and the sauce is thick.
Ready to eat!
I always serve this with brown rice. I find it’s a perfect combination for the sauce.
Or you can serve it with a good slice of bread if you like to dip bread into the sauce…
Attention! I mean 1 slice of bread (60-80 gr.) not the whole baguette! 😉
