I made this for the first time tonight - I reckon the leftovers will taste even better!
Mole recipe makes around 4 servings, the mash was enough for two.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 chipotle chilli, finely chopped
2 tsp chilli powder
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp smoked paprika
1tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp allspice
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 cup vegetable broth
A couple of handfuls of raisins or sultanas
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp agave syrup
1 can black beans (approximate amount I used prepared dried beans)
Saute the onion for 5 minutes or so, then add the garlic and all the herbs/spices and fry for another minute. Add the broth and tomatoes and bring to the boil. Add the raisins or sultanas, cocoa powder and peanut butter and bring down to a simmer for 15-20 minutes until reduced a bit.
Stick it in a blender and puree until smooth. Put it back in the pan and stir in the agave and black beans. Leave to sit for a while so the flavours can develop.
For the ginger-sweet potato mash, chop up one peeled sweet potato and one white potato into chunks and boil/steam until soft. Mash up with a little bit of soya margarine and ½ tsp of very finely chopped root ginger. Season with black pepper and a bit of salt.
Stick it all in a bowl and enjoy!
That awkward moment when your partner walks into the kitchen to find you huddled in the corner with an open container of nooch and a spoon and your mouth encrusted with little flakes...
