As Autumn kicks in, we think about changing our main meal menus at home. Eating well can be a real pleasure and also great for the budget. Everyone will love this grunty soup.
To make White Bean Chorizo Soup, you will need:
500g chorizo sausage (or smoked bacon)
2 tsp olive oil
1 large red onion, diced
4 ribs of celery, diced
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic, minced
8 cups chicken stock
3 cans of small white beans
flat-leaf parsley, for garnish
How to make White Bean Chorizo Soup:
Pull off the chorizo casings and crumble the meat. Render the fat from the chorizo in a little bit of olive oil in a large Dutch oven or stock pot set over medium-high heat. After about seven to ten minutes, remove chorizo from pot and drain on a paper towel.
While the chorizo cooks, dice onion and slice celery. After removing chorizo, add onion and celery to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the celery is tender and the onion is beginning to nicely caramelize. Add two cloves of chopped garlic and cook, stirring constantly to avoid burning, for one minute.
Add chicken stock and tomatoes to pot. Bring soup to a simmer and add beans and chorizo. Once beans are warmed through, season with salt and pepper to taste. Add chopped parsley before serving with a fresh, crusty bread.
