Rinse the squid and let drain in a colander. Gently cook the onion, carrot, and garlic in the olive oil in a pot large enough to hold the squid. When the onion turns translucent, after about 10 minutes, add the squid and stir over high heat.


Continue stirring until the liquid released by the squid completely evaporates. Add the red wine and the bouquet garni and simmer gently, partially covered, for 45 minutes.


Remove the lid and simmer until the sauce cooks down and thickens slightly but still remains soup like.


Season with salt and pepper and serve in heated soup plates. Pass the aioli and bread at the table.

Butter is very good with lentils, so use some to finish them before serving. Or use walnut oil, which is not only delicious but makes the dish vegan. Serve with a medium-bodied red wine with balanced fruit, acidity, and earthiness. A Barbera from the Piedmont or a ..
