Fagioli - getting more taste
« on: February 13, 2012, 10:43:24 pm »
I would welcome suggestions re getting more taste from the basic Fagioli EDC recipe.  Cooking the basic recipe for only two (when one doesn't like pasta) leaves such a lot of left overs, if I could make it tastier it might help.

My DD's consultant made it for her Demo Delivery and it was delicious! I guess you could add salami and spinach to make it more interesting.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Are you including the chilli, garlic and parmesan?  They are all very tasty elements already.

A little spicy pancetta added along with the onion adds extra flavour (assuming you're not vegetarian!).

Mmm. Umami Paste instead of veggie stock. I made Umami today and can't wait to use it.

I was low on pasta earlier this week, but had already started this recipe. Instead of the pasta, I substituted 200grams of quinoa and cooked for 15 minutes instead of 10. The taste was vastly improved. I will never use pasta in this recipe again. I will use a brown bean rather than a white bean to add a bit more colour too.

I would bump up the amount of chilli and garlic used as they are the main flavourings.  I prefer capsicum instead of celery and use 500g of pasta as we don't like it soupy. We had it tonight for a quick meal and the kids gobbled it up.  :)

interesting you don't find the fagioli tasty - mine's plenty tasty. have to say i didn't really want to have it because i'm almost phobic about beans, but i think it's delicious - i actually prefer it to the risotto, well, i can eat more of it than the risotto. i follow the recipe to the T, but use my stock to flavour it well.
