AD— Serve this dish as a starter or as an accompaniment to a grilled fillet of beef or a fish such as tuna or swordfish.

PN— Like all grains, einkorn contains a lot of carbohydrates but it’s much richer than others in protein, fibre, mineral salts of all kinds, and B-group vitamins.

The day before

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
350g einkorn

Method

  1. Put 350 g of einkorn to soak in a bowl and keep in a cold place for 12 hours.

On the day

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 small yellow pepper
1 small red pepper
1 small green pepper
1 white onion
1 garlic clove
1 litres Chicken stock
2 tablespoons olive oil
A pinch salt
2 sprigs basil
a glass white wine
20g parmesan
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons pitted black olives

Method

  1. Skin 1 small yellow pepper, 1 small red pepper, 1 small green pepper and 1 white onion and cut into long thin strips (approximately 4 cm x 3 mm).
  2. Peel and mince 1 garlic clove.
  3. Heat 1 litre of chicken stock in a saucepan.
  4. Heat a flameproof casserole dish with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sweat the onion and peppers with a pinch of salt for 4 minutes. Stir frequently.
  5. Add the einkorn, garlic and a sprig of basil (2 sprigs required in total for recipe). Stir and cook for 1 minute then add a glass of white wine. Allow to reduce almost entirely then pour in chicken stock to cover. Simmer, adding more chicken stock in stages as it is absorbed.
  6. Taste and stop cooking when the einkorn is how you like it, slightly firm or softer. Adjust the seasoning.
  7. While the einkorn is cooking, pick the leaves from the reserved sprig of basil and chop finely.
  8. When the einkorn is cooked, remove the casserole dish from the heat, grate 20 g of parmesan directly into it and stir gently, adding 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of pitted black olives. The dish should be sufficiently moist and “creamy”.
  9. Add the chopped basil and serve straight from the casserole dish.
