Recipe Preparation

This, too, is a Portuguese recipe++from the Algarve.

It can be made with octopuses of any size. Baby ones won't need so
much precooking.

Precook 600 to 800 g octopus in 200 mL red wine with a little water.

The octopus will exude liquid so that you are likely to end up with
more cooking liquid at the end.

Retain this and add water to make it up to 600 ea mL. Cut the drained
octopus into small pieces.

Heat 150 mL olive oil in a large saucepan, add a chopped onion and
cook gently, stirring, for 2 or 3 minutes. Add 2 garlic cloves finely
chopped, 3 tomatoes, skinned and chopped, and a large green pepper
cut into snips. Season with salt, pepper and chilli powder to taste.
Cook for a few minutes longer.

Add the cooking liquid from the octopus and bring it to the boil. Add
350 g rice (preferable a short-grain risotto rice like arborio) and
bring back to the boil, then turn the heat very low and put the lid
on the saucepan. After 15 minutes, stir to ensure the rice is not
catching on the bottom of the saucepan. In 5 minutes more, taste a
grain or two to make sure it is soft. The rice should still be quite

Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Elevated consumption of animal-based products could lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the chance of heart conditions.
The majority of the unpleasant side-effects stated, such as general tiredness, stomach upsets, or bad headaches are only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, turnip greens and winter squash)
These natural foods are rich in carotenes (alpha and beta) believed to play a major part in minimizing the risk of cancer, spefically cancer of the stomach. Many are low in calories, so should be a part of every weight loss program.
