food recipes - Huevos al modo de soller (Mallorcan eggs)
You will need
2 carrots, finely chopped
2 leeks finely chopped
200g shelled peas
8 slices of sobrasada (soft red mallorcan sausage)
Put a little oil in a saucepan and saute the
carrots and leeks. Add the peas and enough water to cover, then
simmer the vegetables until soft. Drain and purée the vegetables
in a blender with the milk. Return the purée to the saucepan
and cook for approximately 15 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
Fry (or grill) the sobrasada and put on a plate. Top each with a
fried (or poached egg) and a generous spoonfull of the vegetable
purée - serves 4.
This is wonderful at any time of day, we have it
for breakfast at about 10, or as a snack or starter.
You will need:
- A day old barra (french stick)
- A peeled clove of garlic
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Fresh tomato
Slice the barra lengthwise and toast until golden,
then rub the toasted side with the garlic clove
all over. Take the tomato and slice in half and
rub vigourously over the toast. Drizzle lots and
lots of olive oil onto the toast let it soak in
and enjoy! Some people like to sprinkle a little
salt on too.
