Baked beans for a hot day

GOURMANDE in OSAKA

Classic baked beans are great to start the day, but not what you’d want when temperature is soaring.

Well, I’ve taken cooked Kintoki red beans, added lots of tomato paste, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper. And “baked” in the micro-wave oven, briefly.
Then I’ve mixed in the flesh os 1/4 of lemon, let cooled at room temperature. Decorated with negi leeks and a slice of lemon.

The sourness of the sauce is refreshing. Room temperature food is ideal. Too hot, that warms you even more. Cold then ? That makes you feel the contrast.

A side of grits-polenta.

Rings of chili are hidden in the grits.
