I'm staying at my friends Summer house in Campos, Mallorca and their house is just mind blowing beautiful! The house is surrounded by their very own lemon, fig, pomegranate, orange and grapefruit trees and the most important space, the kitchen is just... I can't even... It's seriously my dream kitchen! It almost felt like the kitchen was talking to me saying... "Hello Eva, come and cook here with me" delusional or not, I knew I had to create some fabulous cooking here!!
- 3 big tomatoes
- 2 red bell peppers
- 2 white onion
- 1 garlic glove
- 1 spring onion
- 1/2 red pepper (you can leave this out)
- a spoonful of Ghee (you can use any other oil)
- garnish the dish with some fresh basil leaves (optional)
- organic smoked red pepper powder
- salt and pepper
Chop the tomatoes, half a onion and paprika in medium sized chunks. Drizzle some ghee in a pan and grill the tomatoes and paprika with the seasoning for about 4 minutes. Now add the garlic and red pepper and after 1 minute put everything in a blender and blend it until smooth. Put the sauce back in the pan and put it on low heat and add the springonions. Check the flavor and see if it needs more smoked red pepper, salt or pepper.
Meanwhile grill the asparagus and season them with some salt and pepper. Get yourself another pan and drizzle some more ghee and slowly grill the onion rings, the strong sharp onion flavor will disappear this way and instead you'll get an amazing sweet taste in return. I'm a big sucker for onions prepared this way!
When you set up the plate leave it for 5 minutes before serving. This way the grilled flavors from the asparagus and onions will infuse with the sauce. This way your sauce get much more depth in flavor!
Have a beautiful great day!!
