Georgian Recipes

The Georgian word ‘lobio’ (Georgian: ლობიო) means ‘beans’ and there are a number of varieties of lobio dishes. In this recipe we show how to make lobio with sweetcorn.

Ingredients: 400 grams of kidney beans.

150 grams of sweetcorn, 60 grams of butter, 1 clove of garlic, half a tsp of blue fenugreek, half a tsp of dried coriander, 1 white onion, 1 tbs of dried, coarse red pepper, 20 grams of fresh parsley, and salt (dependent upon personal preference),

Preparation: Soak the beans in a deep cooking pot of cold water for two hours prior to cooking, then drain water and add the bay leaves, salt and 1.5 liters of fresh water.

Cook on a medium heat until the beans are tender.

Add the butter and mash together with the beans.

Crush the garlic and add, together with the spices, to the beans and mash/stir thoroughly. Continue to cook on a medium heat for a further 5 minutes.

Turn off the heat. Chop the onions and add, together with the sweetcorn (save a few of the sweetcorn for garnish) and 10 grams of parsley, to the beans and stir carefully (don’t mash).

The lobio should look like the picture below.

Serving: Serve hot, garnished with raw onion, sweetcorn and parsley.

Enjoy your lobio with sweetcorn!

Crunchy Cajun chicken

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Deseed and finely chop one of the chillies, then peel the garlic. Pound the chopped chilli, garlic and a pinch of sea salt together in a pestle and mortar until you have a paste, then add to a bowl. Add the butter and a pinch of pepper, finely grate in the lime zest and mix well, then place in the fridge to firm up.

2. Cook the chicken according to packet instructions. Meanwhile, pick and reserve half the coriander leaves and finely chop the remaining half, then finely slice the remaining chilli.

3. Trim and peel the carrots, trim the zucchini and coarsely grate both along with the apple and cabbage. Tip into a large bowl, add the yoghurt and 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, then squeeze in the lime juice. Mix well, season to taste with salt and pepper, add the chopped coriander and a little more lime juice, if needed.

4. Preheat the grill, griddle pan or barbecue. Remove the husks from the corn, parboil for 8 minutes, then
allow to steam dry. Drizzle with olive oil and cook on the preheated grill for around 10 minutes, or until lightly charred, turning regularly. Remove the corn from the grill and melt a small knob of the chilli butter onto each.

5. Serve with the cooked chicken and a dollop of slaw, then scatter with the reserved sliced chilli and coriander leaves.

Jamie's Tip: The zesty chilli butter is delicious melted over all kinds of veggie and meat dishes. Dollop the remaining butter onto a sheet of greaseproof paper, roll up into a log shape, twisting the ends like a Christmas cracker. Pop into the freezer, and use as and when you need it.

Welsh Rarebit by Fergus Henderson

To serve at least 4, depending on the dimensions of your toast

Welsh Rarebit is a noble version of cheesy toast. Everyone loves cheesy toast! Our Rarebit is a proud thing and, if we might say so, extremely popular. So it is odd that Fergus gleaned this recipe from a chef who had previously worked at Buck’s Club, which was well known at the time for selling the worst rarebit in London.*

A knob of butter
1 tablespoon plain flour
1 teaspoon English mustard powder
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
A very long splash of Worcestershire sauce, and a bottle to serve

450g mature strong Cheddar cheese, grated
4 pieces of toast

Melt the butter in a pan, stir in the flour, and let this cook together until it smells biscuity but is not browning. Add the mustard powder and cayenne pepper, stir in the Worcestershire sauce and the Guinness, then gently melt in the cheese. When it’s all of one consistency, remove from the heat, pour out into a shallow container, and allow to set.

Take a piece of good white bread and toast on both sides. Allow to cool just a little, then cover one side with the rarebit mixture to about 1cm thick – if you find that it doesn’t spread with ease, press it on with your fingers. Put on a baking sheet and place under the grill until golden and bubbling – grilling to just beyond your comfort threshold, to allow the flour to cook out.

When it comes to eating, irrigation channels are essential: make a gentle criss-cross pattern on your hot rarebit with a knife, creating the perfect flood plain for the Worcestershire sauce.

* There is another thing that we might add, if you are amused by a little mathematics. At St. JOHN Smithfield we sell an average of forty-five Welsh Rarebits per day. Taking into account annual closures, in this, our twenty-fifth year, we will have sold somewhere in the region of 405,000 rarebits. By the time we are thirty we will have surpassed the half-million mark. Onward!

BBQ Chicken Spaghetti Squash

The idea first popped into my head a few months ago and I haven’t been able to shake my desire to try a barbecue spiked spaghetti squash ever since.

I’m super happy to report that I finally made my recipe daydream a reality and it was AWESOME!

I had mine straight out of the squash boat (as per usual!) and I served Paul’s baked casserole style with extra cheese and veggies and a dollop of sour cream on top of the BBQ drizzle. I may or may not have stolen some of his as well. Thumbs up all around, yo!

The smoky sweet sauce was delightful with the spaghetti squash and I’m already dreaming up what other veggies I can stuff into the mix next round. Mushrooms? Pineapple? Sweet Potato? Cauliflower? Tomatoes? Jalapeños?!

Whether you rescue leftover or rotisserie chicken for this recipe, or cook it up with these sassy stuffed squash in mind, your plate is sure to be rocked!

As written, this recipe makes enough for two large portions (1 squash boat each) or 4 servings. Round out your plate with a healthy salad, fresh veggies and dip, or homemade coleslaw. Sweet potato fries would also be an awesome addition!
