Chorizo and Butter Bean Soup

Chorizo and Butter Bean Soup Recipe

Recipe by Sparky - Peas & Figs Resident Chef

This gorgeous soup is based on the delicious 'Chorizo and Butter Bean Stew' recipe.  If you're on the Reset programme, it's a great timesaver to double the quantities when you cook the stew the previous evening.  Just add the additional water to the recipe to create this soup. 


1. Slice the chorizo and fry in a medium sized saucepan with the olive oil over a high heat until it starts to colour.

2. Chop and add the onions and reduce to a low heat.

3. Crush the garlic and add both the garlic and thyme when the onions start to soften.

4. Add the tomatoes, butter beans and 100ml water and increase the heat to high.

5. Cook for 5 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.

6. Remove from the heat, add the 300ml of water and parsely and stir through. 

7. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
