This Hungarian green beans cream has been a discovery that the Hungarians take forever. It's fun to discover how a recipe that suddenly arises because it is what is in the refrigerator, then it is that is very similar to a dish here or there. And that happened to me with this cream. I had a few green beans in the fridge. already we had taken them sautéed with ham (which I love as well), but remained a handful, so I decided to make a cream.

The first time I made it with cream. I usually prefer to use cream cheese because I like the acid and soft touch that gives the vegetables creams, but that single day had cream and the result was a little bland.

So I decided to read about cream of green beans to improve my result and was when I discovered that Hungarians are much like green beans cream, blow that they not crushed it and leave the whole beans. They used to do it with a roux, a mixture of flour with the bechamel-like butter but is made with the water from boiling the beans, and served it the same cold that hot, though I have not dared to take it cold never, admit.

Loleta is the siracha sauce, delicious and very spicy Thai sauce that is made with fermented chilli and which gives a unique flavor. To my I love using it in dishes of vegetables and chicken and is the basis of many other sauces. A touch of rock and roll in this cream that is ideal for these cold days.

You know that I love to give a different touch to the creams, as the pumpkin cream to which I add a little curry and coconut milk. Here the sitacha make magic in a cream which a priori may seem a little bland but which is very rich. Once again, party won the "I don't like".
