Historically, this night has a habit of being gloomy or humid enough to extinguish your Roman candles. No matter what the weather is tonight, we all need to have something substantive on our plates. Taking into account everyone’s determination to miss a fireworks dinner is most likely to stand up from a deep bowl of fork to eat. Sausage, fennel seed paste and chili paste stick together, this year will be on the table. I like a rough spicy sausage, cooking with lentils. Specifically, pork, fennel seeds and black pepper-flavored sausages hanging in an Italian grocery store are tied together with a rope to show full briquettes. Of course, as long as they fill so generously, they look just as if their skin is about to burst, and anything can fit the bill.
At the same time I will bake the whole beetroot, the notes of their earth softened with ricotta and crisp pumpkin and hemp seeds. I can add a little yogurt or cream to the cheese to make it softer and more saucy accompaniment. Baked potatoes (my money, which they hardly negotiate), fresh, crispy, and fluffy meat also appear in the oven. Of course, a lot of butter and harsh farmhouse cheddar will be on hand.
Grilled sausages with harissa and tomatoes
Recipes can easily be enlarged to cater to large quantities, but adding harissa sauce to taste instead of simply multiplying by the number.
2 tablespoons olive oil
Six large sausages
2 tsp harissa sauce
4 medium tomatoes
Lentils or Cannellini beans 2 400g cans
200 ml chicken broth
Using a little oil, place the sausage in a light, heat-resistant pan, heat at low to moderate temperatures and turn it regularly to make it as uniform as possible. Set oven temperature to 200C / gas mark 6.
Peel the onion, roughly chopped. Remove the sausage and set aside, then add the remaining pan, then onion, let it soften and light in color. This should be the most precious gold. Remove two leaves from the branches of rosemary, chop them, and add them to the onion with a pinch of salt.
Stir the harissa sauce into the onion. Probably cut tomatoes. Add chopped tomatoes and cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes begin to soften. Drain beans, rinse with water, stir into the onion, and then poured into the pot to boil. Reduce the heat and put the sausages back into the pot. Check the seasoning and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
Roasted beetroot with seeds ricotta
I occasionally gave birth to beetroot instead of boiling them first and never felt happy about the result and found that prolonged cooking made them dry. Pre-boiling them and wrapping them with foil is a good way to keep them moist during baking because it encourages them to cook with their own steam. Cream accompaniment, add a few tablespoons of cream or thick yogurt to the ricotta cheese.
Garnish 4 as a side dish
Beetroot 4, medium
Thyme 12 twigs
Rosemary 4 twigs
Bay leaves 4
3 tablespoons olive oil
200 grams of ricotta cheese
Orange 1 small
1 tablespoon of hemp seed
Pumpkin seeds 2 tablespoons
3 tablespoons coriander, chopped
Boil the water in a large, deep pan and generously salt. Scrub and trim the beetroot, taking care not to puncture the skin. Boil them all 40-45 minutes until they are completely softened. You should be able to pierce them with a fork effortlessly. Set oven temperature to 200C / gas mark 6.
Place the ricotta in the mixing bowl. Finely ground the orange flavor, adding hemp, pumpkin seeds and chopped parsley to add the ricotta cheese. Season with a little salt and black pepper.
Put a large piece of kitchen foil in the baking tray. When the beetroots are tender, remove them from the water and peel off the skin – they should easily leave – and place the beetroots on the foil. Place thyme and rosemary and bay twigs in a mixing bowl. Add a little salt and black pepper and pour in olive oil. Pour the sauce and oil together and scoop the beetroot. Roll loose the edges of the foil loosely and wrap around the beetroots and bake for about 45 minutes.
Remove the baking tray from the oven, open the foil, and place the beetroot on the tray. Cut them and place a generous one spoonful of seed whey mixture in each.
