yesterday i did some recipes and forgot the sauce for the pineapple.it's a bit strange because it has some red curry paste in it but it works well with the braised pineapple.

you'll need about 3 heaped teaspoons of good peanut butter, whole earth is the best one. also about 15ml of lime juice, 75g of palm sugar or agave nectar, one tin of coconut milk and two teaspoons of red curry paste. you may also need some water.

put all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. it is cooked when the palm sugar has dissolved. if it sticks add some water. blitz with a hand blender and pass through a sieve.

if you want it hotter, add more paste etc etc.

tonight i'm making quick black beans. i fancied some fajitas (fried onion, pepper, mushrooms and tomatoes, seasoned with lime juice and tobasco) and wanted the taste of chilaqulies. this is the recipe that i cooked at the cowbridge food festival.

soften an onion and some garlic in oil. add one teaspoon of good instant coffee, one teaspoon of chipotle paste and some 100ml orange juice. cook down for 3 minutes and then add 1 tin of organic black beans and some veg stock. cook down until thick then blend or eat as is. add to your fajitas with mature cheddar and sour cream.
