Recept: witte bonen in tomatensaus

Tijm1

Witte bonen in tomatensaus hoeven niet per se uit een potje te komen, je kan ze ook zelf maken. Hieronder volgen 2 manieren.

Ingrediënten (voor 4 personen)

- 2 koppen gedroogde witte bonen
- water
- 100 gram tomatenpuree
- olijfolie
- 4 tenen knoflook
- 2 rode uien, in kleine stukjes
- tijmtakjes, vers of gedroogd
- sap van 1 citroen
- zout en peper, naar smaak

Bereiding - Eerste manier

Breng water aan de kook, haal van het vuur en week hierin de bonen 12 uur, spoel ze daarna goed af en herhaal dit nog een keer 12 uur. Spoel ze weer af.

Meng in een ovenschaal de olie, de bonen, tomatenpuree, knoflook, zout en tijm. Zet dit 6 uur (!) in een oven op 150 graden. Af en toe alles mengen. Als het te droog lijkt te worden, voeg dan wat olie toe.

Haal het gerecht uit de oven, verwijder de tijmtakjes en voeg de uienstukjes en citroensap toe.

Het gerecht is klaar als de bonen zacht zijn. Ze zijn dan niet melig.

Bereiding - Tweede manier (deze gaat een stuk sneller.)

Week en kook de bonen volgens de aanwijzingen. Nog sneller is het als je gare bonen uit een pot of blik gebruikt.

Verhit in een koekenpan de olie. Bak hierin de bonen met de overige ingrediënten.

Design for Life

categorieën: films, Permacultuur

This 68 minute feature documentary by British videographer Sam Collins tells the story of two scientifically trained baby boomers who saw cracks emerging in the global ecosystem and started the adventure of their lives, to perfect an abundant, sustainable way of living.

Annemarie and Graham Brookman’s quest for the principles of sustainable living took them to 40 countries but ended when they encountered permaculture, a design system for sustainable living created by David Holmgren and Bill Mollison. It was everything they needed for a bold experiment, giving them a set of principles and techniques with which to plan their lives and a small farm to assess and perfect this new way of living.

The film traces the physical and economic challenges they overcame: lack of capital, smallness of scale, droughts, floods and the loneliness of the pathfinder, to become one of the World’s iconic permaculture properties and one of Australia’s most awarded organic farms, The Food Forest.

The movie explains the ethos and planning principles of permaculture through a range of interviews with David Holmgren, Graham and Annemarie Brookman and other designers. It also gives an insight into the thoughts of ‘permaculture children’ whose generation must fix the exploitative foundations of global economics.

Design for Life illustrates the spacial and energy planning of  The Food Forest as well as tracing the development of direct sales through farmers markets, the phenomenon of WWOOFing and the spin-off enterprises of eco-tourism and short courses.

There is a sting in the tail of the film when Holmgren and Brookman address the World’s urgent needs for educational, economic and environmental reform and illustrate a model for the planning of sustainable cities.

‘Design for Life’  moves on from the string of eco-disaster documentaries that have raised public awareness and provides a glimpse of the way forward, ‘prosperity without growth’, leaving viewers hungry for more. 

In addition to the 68 minute movie the ‘Design for Life’ DVD includes a detailed 25 minute virtual tour of The Food Forest which explains the workings of the sustainable strawbale home and each of the enterprises that are stacked into this certified-organic, hive of activity – vegetables, fruit and nuts, herbs, chickens, geese, agroforestry, biodiversity, value-adding, water, compost, waste cycling, wine, cider and vinegar.

Additional notes

The movie was made on a Mac laptop on the kitchen table at The Food Forest.
Pre-launch screenings at the National Permaculture Conference and for the Roseworthy Old Collegians have both been welcomed with standing ovations.
Radical ecosystem designs such as incorporating micro-kangaroos into their horticulture and extraordinary water harvesting, storage and irrigation systems show the application of permacuture technologies.

Rich action footage spanning almost 40 years and the information-rich soundtrack make for compelling viewing. Clever use of still shots and aerial views and lovely animations of water and nutrient recycling systems graphically explain the dynamics of sustainable design.

'Design for Life' is the culmination of an intensive partnership between the English film-maker Sam Collins, Australian permaculture designer Graham Brookman and graphic designer Kath Read. Sam and Graham have produced over 25 short educational films for the 'Food Forest TV' channel on YouTube.
