Beans and octopus

Side dish



60 min

2 servings


2 boxes of  CIRIO Red Beans
500g white potatoes
1 piece of fresh octopus
50ml red vinegar
1 piece of lemon
1 red onion -optional

2 carrots
2 white onions
1 celery
2 bay leaves
10g peppercorns
200ml white wine
1 bunch of parsley

  1. Boil the potatoes before and cut them into rounds. Season with salt, pepper, fresh parsley and place them on a plate.
  2. Boil water in a pot. Add ginger, squeezed lemon, peppercorns, onion cut in half, garlic, white wine, fresh oregano, fresh parsley, thyme and wait for it to boil.
  3. Meanwhile, put the red beans into a bowl, add salt, pepper, lime peel, a drop of red vinegar, fresh parsley and basil.
  4. Mix the salad and add a little olive oil.
  5. Prepare the octopus. Put the octopus to boil in a pot with spice. The octopus boils for 30 minutes per kg of product, so you need to calculate the cooking time depending on the weight of the octopus you have.
  6. After the octopus has boiled, remove it and cut the tentacles into equal pieces.
  7. We clean the tentacles of the brown shell that the octopus gets when it boils.
  8. Pour olive oil into a pan and add the chopped tentacles.
  9. Over the sliced boiled potatoes add the red bean salad and the tentacles.
  10. Serve with a little fresh parsley on top.
