:: Chorizo and Butter Bean Stew ::

I know, I know I have been such a bad blogger. Three weeks with out a post is really bad, but the last few weeks have been a bit of a whirl. I finally got the courage to resign from my job, so the last weeks have been a flurry of interviews and job hunting. I feel so happy and excited and free at the moment. All the stress and unhappiness of the last months have just washed away. I am so excited for what the next few months have in line for me. Summer is on it's way and I just can't wait. 

The weather over the last weeks has been beeeautifullll.  Lovely spring days filled with blossom petal smiles, daylight until at least 7pm and not having to wear a coat. My morning coffee is starting to turn into an iced latte rather than the extra hot usual. 

To me, chorizo and tomatoes sing summer and sunshine and this dish is a quick and easy supper which is lovely and filling. Its great for an evening out on the terrace, with the sun going down filling the sky in a golden hue.

This one pot wonder is so super easy that I knocked it all together in 30 minutes.

You will need for 4 bowls of goodness:

:: 1 Chorizo ring or a pack of mini chorizo sausages

:: 3 garlic cloves finely sliced

:: 1 onion finely diced

:: 1 courgette roughly chopped

:: 1 yellow pepper finely 

:: 2 tins of chopped tomato

:: 2 cans butter beans (rinsed)

:: 1 Chicken stock pot

:: Splash of hot sauce

:: 1tbsp Worcester Sauce

:: Salt & pepper to taste

\\ Saute off the onion, garlic and chorizo over a gentle heat until the onion is soft and golden from the chorizo juices. 

\\ Add the pepper and courgette into the mix and gently soften. 

\\ Add the butter beans, chopped tomatoes, stock cube, hot sauce and worcester sauce, season and leave to simmer for about 20 minutes. 

\\ Serve in generous bowls with a hunk of crusty bead and enjoy.

\\ P.s this also makes excellent leftovers for lunch. That's if you have any left.

Happy sunny Sunday all xxx
