Octopus with Beans

Although it may look a little foreboding, don’t be intimidated by cooking octopus; it’s mostly a hands-off process. With a little time and patience, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning octopus antipasto—perfect as a starter or light lunch.


While delicious as a salad, this recipe can also become a wonderful sauce to serve over pasta. Warm 1 Tbsp (15 mL) grapeseed oil in large frying pan over medium-high heat and add tomatoes, zucchini instead of cucumber, beans, and a splash of water or white wine. Sauté until warmed through and tomatoes start to pop and release their juices. Stir in octopus and some of its marinade before spooning over spaghetti.
