Legume soup with the prawns
Updated: Jun 20
100 g of cooked white beans
100 g of pearl barley
2 tbsp of cooked lentils
12 prawn tails
2 tsp of coarse salt with herbs
6 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
1 dry red pepper (fresh)
2 tbsp of Cognac
salt and pepper
Finely chop the carrot and onion, fry them in a saucepan with the whole unpeeled garlic, oil, and chilli pepper. Once the vegetables are transparent, remove the garlic and add the beans and barley. Season with salt and pepper and let it brown for about 2 minutes. Add vegetable broth until it covers about 2 fingers and cook for 10 minutes on a very low heat.
Grind the mixture in a blender, adding the rest broth if necessary.
Shell the prawn tails. Heat a non-stick pan with a little oil and brown the shellfish over a high flame, sprinkling them with the herb salt and the Cognac. Place the prawns on the soft legume soup, adding the lentils.
