Macco di fave fried. The m dried broad beans è una ricetta siciliana di antica tradizione a base di fave secche che, from street food and food fairs, became a refined delicacy. If you have already tried the recipe BROAD BEANS (take a look also at the VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube Channel) and did you like, next time do a little’ di più e godetevi queste sfiziosissime frittelle dal sapore intenso e dal profumo avvolgente (If you think they are vegetarians and even vegans, I don't know cos & #8217; else you could ask for more).

Potete servire il macco di fave fritto come aperitif con un calice di bollicine, What Starter conviviale o come single dish insieme a una fresca insalata. We heat we taste, with a squeeze of lemon and plenty of ground black pepper. So, macco bean really expresses all the strength and intensity of my Sicily, found that in all my SICILIAN RECIPES.

The format of pasta that I recommend for macco fried beans is a wide and flat format, as the sagne, the beauty queens or the lasagnette di semola. But are fine even broken spaghetti or linguine. Cook the pasta al dente, Why then should cool down and will be cooked again with frying. Remember that you can prepare in the same way also MACCO PEAS DRIED. Now hurry up and put the dried beans to soak, good day and almost happy new year!

Guardate innanzitutto la VIDEO RECIPE del macco siciliano di fave secche. To prepare macco bean, then cold can fry, you have to rinse the dried beans and soak them in cold water for at least 2 hours. Finely chop the carrot and celery and dice small onion. Saute vegetables and garlic for a few minutes over low heat in a little extra virgin olive oil, remove the garlic and add the well-drained dry beans. Brown and cover with water. When the liquid begins to boil, skim any impurities that rise to the surface.

Cover and cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the beans will not begin to unravel. If you see that stick to the bottom or are too dry, add some hot water.

When you've got a thick cream with bits of bean curd, season with salt, Add the finely chopped Rosemary and fennel. If the cream is too thick, add some more hot water and pour the spaghetti or broken queens into it. Bring to al dente and straighten out the macco bean to a thickness of about 3 cm in an oven plate slightly oiled. Allow to cool completely.

When the macco bean will be cold and thus solid, cut it into rectangles or diamond shapes and dip in the flour.

Fry the pancakes of macco di fave in plenty of peanut oil and serve hot, accompanied by lemon wedges and freshly ground black pepper. Bon appétit!
