  4. Add the 1/2 onion, green pepper and and paprika and cook for another hour, until the beans are tender.
  5. Drain the beans reserving the cooking liquid.

 

FOR THE SAUCE

  1. Heat the butter in a wide pan, add the whole sliced onion, leeks and carrot and cook gently until soft but not coloured.
  2. Add the Cognac or Brandy and flame.
  3. Stir in the wine and sofrito and allow the sauce to bubble for a few minutes, then turn down heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until reduced by half.
  4. Liquidise with a hand blender until smooth.
  5. Taste for seasoning.
  6. When the sauce is ready add the beans (whether cooked from dried or pre-cooked from a jar) and mix with the tomato sauce and crabmeat, adding a little of the cooking liquid if necessary; serve.
