Chorizo with beans & greens

This all-in-one dish is even better the next day, so make double and have it for lunch. If you’re cooking for more people, serve it with big pasta shells parmesan.

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 190g Cooks’ Ingredients Cooking Chorizo
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 sticks celery, sliced
  • 4 clove/s garlic, chopped
  • 100ml dry white wine
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 x 400g cans Essential Butter Beans, drained
  • 400g can Essential Haricot Beans, drained
  • 400g Swiss chard


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan and cook the chorizo over a high heat to brown on both sides. Turn down the heat and add the onion, celery and garlic. Cook for 5-7 minutes until softened but not browned.

  2. Add the white wine, turn up the heat and simmer fast until reduced by ½. Add the tomatoes and beans, season, and return to a gentle heat for 15 minutes until thickened.

  3. Tear the leaves from the chard and shred. Finely chop the stalks. Add the stalks to the pan and cook for a few minutes then stir in the shredded leaves and simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chard is tender. Check the seasoning and serve with crusty bread to mop up any juices.

Cook’s tip

This is a great dish to increase your veg intake. Use any mix of green leafy vegetables you have available – spinach, kale, cabbage all work well here. Swap in different beans – cannellini or borlotti are particularly good. And of course, you can use pancetta or bacon lardons instead of chorizo, or go meat free and leave out altogether.
