RECIPE PREPARATION Couscous with red beans and pickles:
We put the couscous in a bowl. Boil the water together with the dried vegetables. Let it boil for 2-3 boils, then turn off the heat. Add the coconut oil, stir until it melts and pour everything over the couscous in the bowl. Mix the couscous well, so that it is still moistened with water and let it hydrate, covering the bowl with a lid. Stir occasionally in the bowl to hydrate the couscous evenly. Drain the red beans from the liquid they were in and pass them through a stream of cold water. Drain the pickles and carrots and slice them thinly, and cut the donuts into small strips. Mix the beans with the pickles and then add the hydrated couscous, which has cooled in the meantime. No need to add salt or other spices, because we have pickles that are salty and possibly slightly spicy. We can add a little greenery, parsley, dill, basil leaves, for extra freshness, but we have among the dried vegetables and a little dried greenery. Dried vegetables and coconut oil give good taste to the couscous and pleasant aromas. We can serve the simple dish, because it is full and can take the place of any meal. We can even take it as a package, constituting the meal at work.

Goodies from Oana
The dwarf always has a craving for something sweet. Really always! If it were after him, all the meals would consist of chocolate :)
Today I prepared a delicious snack, similar to rice pudding but much tastier: couscous with milk and vanilla. I had on the fire a big pot of fresh milk, delivered this morning by a lady who does not shy away from hard work in the country: she has two cows with an extraordinarily tasty milk.
For 2-3 servings I used:
- half a cup of couscous
- a cup of sweet milk
- a teaspoon of vanilla sugar
- a little butter, about half a teaspoon
I was glad that the milk was hot, the snack would be ready in a maximum of 5 minutes.
I melted the butter in a small saucepan and hardened the couscous in it. Of course you can skip this stage, I did so because Stefan seems to like it more in this version. After browning, pour a cup of hot milk, cover and allow to swell. of envy, until it softens completely. The couscous is a bit drunk, so he drank a lot of milk, I think I could add a little more. Extinguish envy with a teaspoon of vanilla sugar and serve with pleasure.
After putting his belly in order, my Stefan has only one more question: why did mommy receive the portion of couscous with milk with candy.
- 200 gr smoked ribs
- an onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- or preserves red beans
- chopped green parsley
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 3-4 tablespoons fat cream
- In a hot pan put the ribs cut into thin strips. Or & # 8230as you want, what if you cut them thicker? :))). Let them cook until nicely browned, as only they can
- With a spatula, take them out of something, whatever you want :)), and cover them to stay warm.
- Put the onion and garlic, finely chopped, in the remaining fat and lightly brown them.
- Add the drained and passed beans under a stream of water. Stir and leave for 2-3 minutes, then add that rib that you put in something :)), lemon juice and salt to taste. Let them make friends somewhere in 5-10 minutes, not too long as they are enough :)). Towards the end add the sour cream and parsley.
- Prepare a corner of fresh bread and spread tactfully in the sauce formed. When you lick your fingers look around a bit, so that not many people see you. :))
ps. no & # 8230acu & # 8217 Caesar ate pickles, which seemed to me an unfortunate combination :))), but if he wanted so, what's my job? :)))
In Bucatarie La Sidy
The habit of consuming this food National Day has its origins about 15 years ago, when a Romanian television - PRO TV - organized a kind of COMPETITION of ciolan beans, as part of a campaign that began just days before December 1st.
Then, he launched a contest in which he invited to the headquarters in them, all the chefs skilled with "the tastiest and most handsome bean with ciolan to the wearer".
As the promotion started a few days before the National Day, the idea caught hundreds of pots and pans full of delicious bean sticks, queuing in front of the PRO TV headquarters.
Recipe original of ciolan beans was created by army cooks and is considered by soldiers to be the tastiest food in the world. It is prepared in large quantities and served with pickles.
If you ever have the opportunity to taste this goodness, prepared in car kitchens, rest assured that you will not regret it. I have eaten many times and now I will give you the recipe that my chefs made, this delicious dish and much appreciated by all the world.
We need :
500 g dried beans
1 kg smoked ciolan
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 green bell pepper
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 blueberry leaf
1-2 tablespoons red pasta (I put donut pasta)
Method of preparation :
The beans are kept in salted water from evening to morning. Then wash in more water and put to boil, over low heat, in salted water, in a pressure cooker, for about 50 minutes or about 2-3 hours in a regular pot (it depends on the beans).
Boil the ciolan over low heat, frothing from time to time, until the meat comes off the bone. After the meat has boiled, we take it out of the juice in which it boiled and let it cool. We kept the juice in which he boiled the meat for a delicious soup.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take another picture of the ciolan. just now when I downloaded the pictures, I noticed. the ciolan is in beans.
While the beans are boiling, finely chop the onion, tomato and pepper, and put the garlic in the press.
In a little oil, fry the chopped onion and peppers and when they have softened add the finely chopped tomato. Stir and leave on the fire for 5 minutes, then add the boiled and drained beans.
Add a little water in which the beans were boiled (how thick we want them to be), donut paste, ground pepper, a little thyme and salt if necessary.
Let it boil for a few more minutes, then we can put out the fire.
Sprinkle freshly chopped parsley on top.
Ciolanul, after it has cooled down a bit and we can handle it, we cut it into portions and serve it with the pre-prepared beans.
Smoked beans are served with a traditional pickle salad.
