Bean terrine lunch

Open the fridge, sit down and eat… And it’s good. Sure, I had things in stock.

This vegan terrine that should have lasted… more than 2 days. It didn’t. Too good to stock. (recipe here : azuki terrine).

With hot rice from the rice-cooker. It’s hatsuga genmai, germinated brown rice as usual.

Tarragon vinegar pickles. I mixed red onion, cucumbers, yellow paprika, red chili. Just a few days in the brine (vinegar, dry tarragon, salt, water).

Dessert : the season fruit basket.

Baking an azuki bean terrine

A good earthy terrine perfect for the season. That’s very easy to make, so there will be others. I like meat terrines and pâtés and this is not a fake one at all. Bean terrines are a different animal and you have to try.

Batter : About 1/2 azuki beans, 1/3 veggies, 1/3 sesame and starches.
I’ve boiled a batch of azuki beans. I’ve mashed them roughly with a fork.
The veggies are chopped red onions and these red sweet chilis. I’ve toasted sesame and ground it, then added some more whole seed, white and black.
The starch is rye flour, plus a little potato starch added for texture.

To be sure it wouldn’t stick, I’ve completely covered the bottom of the mold with black and white sesame seeds. That worked perfectly.
I’ve spiced with garlic, Chinese miso, black pepper, coriander seeds and cumin. In the middle, I’ve hidden a few handful of small favas (broad beans).

After baking one hour.

The icing is Thai sweet chili sauce.

It absorbs it as it cools down. Later, out of the mold :
