Chorizo and Butter Bean Stew

Chorizo and Butter Bean Stew Recipe

Recipe by Sparky - Peas & Figs Resident Chef

A deliciously warming and moreish stew that is, quite unbelievably, low in calories per serving!

If you're following the Reset programme, it's best to double the quantities to make enough for the Chorizo and Butter Bean Soup for lunch the next day.


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 water and increase the heat to high.

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

6. Add salt and pepper to taste. 

7. Serve up.
