As the weather gets colder the last thing I want for lunch is a salad, I just crave warm home cooked food. It’s so much easier to make the wrong food choices in the winter! So for lunch today I found a lovely recipie for a winter warmer Butter Bean and Chorizo Stew, and it only took 20 minutes. Bounus!
200g cooking chorizo
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
2 x 400g cans drained butter beans
1 tub fresh pesto
Firstly, slice the chorizo and tip into a large saucepan over a medium heat. Fry gently for 5 minutes or until starting to turn dark brown.
Add the tomatoes and butter beans, then bring to boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
Swirl through the pesto and season lightly. Spoon the stew into bowls and serve.
This stew is great eaten as it is, or with quinoa.
