Farinata gialla con le leghe

Fry lightly some bacon, chopped leeks, a garlic clove, salt and pepper. Add water, then add the boiled "borlotti" beans and some leaves of black cabbage. Once this course was cooked in a copper pot, where it was possible to prepare the maize flour porridge; today a normal pot is suitable.
Add some maize flour and after its cooking dish it out: it can be served both hot and cold course. It can be roasted on embers or fried in a pan.

This was a typical winter course of Mugello.
