Maimones with fennel recipe


This recipe for maimones with fennels that I present to you today, is a typical dish from the Almanzora basin and the Alpujarra of Almeria. It is a winter food, cold climates, a food that comforts and warms the body.

The maimones are made, depending on the season, with broad beans, artichokes, asparagus or fennel, as I have done today. Of course, the maimones are great for a touch of spice.

Ingredients for 4 people.

Of flour, extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley and salt.


In a casserole, if possible made of clay, with a trickle of EVOO, fry the chopped pepper, add the chopped onion, the sliced ​​chorizo ​​and, finally, the grated tomato, make everything dizzy.

Add the chopped fennels and paprika, water with water (until it covers it) and let it start to boil, at which point we add the chopped potatoes and salt, let it cook for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with the flour while continuing to stir, until you get a sauce texture, let it cook, stirring often to avoid sticking, 5 minutes, sprinkle with the chopped parsley and eat.
