Tomato and Kidney Bean Puree
Trying to come up with something to do with some stray tomatoes yielded this sudden flash of inspiration.
I've done various bean purees and some tomato purees too. Why not see what happens if they're combined.
It's a pretty tasty result.
1/2 can dark red kidney beans, rinsed
2 medium sized tomatoes, chunked
1 jalapeno, rough chopped
1 serrano, rough chopped
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 tbl prepared horseradish
1 tbl olive oil
1 tbl salt
1 tsp black pepper
Cook down the tomatoes, jalapeno, serrano, garlic, oil and salt over medium heat in a medium sauce pot with a lid on it. Let it go for 10 minutes to tenderize the veg.
You can use a food processor or a stick blender. A food processor will give you a smoother puree than a stick blender will. A stick blender is less equipment to clean up, but it does tend to spatter some. Dealer's choice.
Add the remaining ingredients to the cooked mixture and puree with your tool of choice.
It's a somewhat different take on your traditional puree.
