How to make Chocolate-Calamari soup


In a little pot swear the onions in the melted butter; add then the chili flakes, the coriander ant the lovage seeds, stirring and letting infuse for roughly 5 minutes; add then the garlic and the calamari. Let the calamari cook thoroughly and toast a bit without letting the garlic burn though! Now add the carrot and the diced tomato, seeds and all (if you wish, you can skin the tomato as explained here http://recipetaster.blogspot.com/2010/04/bluefin-tuna-alla-siciliana-with.html).

Stir the base until the tomato starts to break down, add then the water and cook at a simmer till the mixture will be reduced to 1/2.

Out of the fire add 5g of chocolate, roughly chopped and whisk will nicely melt. Regulate of salt and add a little bit extra chocolate if needed.
