Chorizo with White Beans
You might be amazed to see ketchup but it adds a lovely hit of sweetness that’s hard to beat. Although if you prefer a option that is sugar-free, see the variations below.
2. Add chorizo and cook for another 5 minutes or until the chorizo is browned.
3. Add ketchup and beans and cook, stirring until everything is hot.
Wine Match: A spicy Tempranillo.
Sugar-free — substitute ketchup with 2-3 tablespoons tomato paste and 2 tablespoons butter.
Vegan — substitute the chorizo with 1-2 tsp smoked paprika and increase the amount of beans and ketchup.
More veg — include grilled red peppers, eggplant, zucchini or cherry tomatoes.
This is a classic Spanish combo that I’m equally joyful eating for breakfast with a poached egg as I am having it for dinner by itself.
4. Taste. Season with salt. Serve with baby spinach on the side.
Different legumes — I like butter beans or cannellini but you could use chickpeas, black beans, red kidney beans, or any lentil. Home cooked beans are even better, you will want about 250G (9oz) drained cooked legumes.
