  2. Serves 3 adults as a main course, keeps well and can be eaten cold for lunch

  3. the next day in pitta or whatever.


  5. 1 large onion, chopped

  6. 1 or 2 cloves garlic

  7. 1tsp dried basil

  8. 1tsp dried oregano

  9. 4 ozs sweetcorn kernels

  10. 15 oz can tomatoes (undrained)

  11. 8 ozs any cooked beans (kidney beans look good in this dish)

  12. 1lb marrow, not too firm

  13. 2 tblsp tomato puree

  14. This is, apparently, a south american dish. I thought it tasted delicious and looked especially good.

  15. METHOD. --

  16. 1. In a large saucepan, saute the onions as you wish :-), until softened.

  17. 2. Meanwhile, dice the marrow into fairly large cubes (1' ?).

  18. 3. Add tomatoes, puree, garlic and herbs to the onions and simmer for ten

  19. minutes (uncovered to thicken the sauce).

  20. 4. Add the marrow and cook until tender, from 10-20 minutes depending on the

  21. size of the marrow cubes. 5. When the marrow is *almost* cooked, add the beans and the sweetcorn and cook

  22. until the marrow is ready and the mixture is piping hot. Eat sprinkled with

  23. loads of freshly milled black pepper. NOTE. This is really good when the sauce is nice and thick. If you do need to

  24. add water during cooking, keep it to a minimum.

  25. I eat this on it's own, but it would go well on brown rice.
