Squid in their own ink

Ingredients: 500 g of txipirones (baby squid)
2 envelopes of squid ink
1 ripe tomato
2 large onions
1 clove garlic
1 glass of white wine
1 piece of stale bread
Olive oil


Stir-fry in a saucepan bathed in olive oil, chopped onion, sliced garlic and finely chopped tomatoes. Allow the onion to soften. Then add the diced stale bread and leave for a few minutes until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. Add the squid ink mixed with the white wine. Cook for half an hour. Meanwhile, take the opportunity to clean the squid. You may like to stuff them with their own tentacles. If so, chop them up and insert into the body. When the sauce is ready, strain through a purée sieve to obtain a creamy liquid. Add the txipirones and cook for 20 minutes. Now it only remains to lick your lips.
