FASTING RECIPE: Chilli con calamari

Chilli con calamari fasting

Although seemingly inspired by Mexico's chilli con carne, this fasting dish is actually based on Calamari in umido from Sicily.

Materials for 2-3 servings:

Three 170g. cans of calamari
50ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
Two medium garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 tsp. of bukovo chilli
3-4 sprigs of fresh thyme, the leaves
100ml dry white wine
One can of 400g Whole Peeled Tomatoes.
salt, freshly ground pepper


Step 1

Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a saucepan and sauté the garlic until it releases its aroma but does not turn brown, stirring with a spatula.

Step 2

Add the bukovo and thyme, mix and turn up the heat. Add the calamari, stirring constantly. Deglaze with the wine and stir for 2 minutes. Once the alcohol has evaporated, add the tomatoes.

Step 3

When the food boils, lower the heat, add a little water if needed and let it simmer for 25 minutes until the sauce thickens.
