5-A-Day Butterbean & Chorizo Bake

Had a fridge full of various vegetables and a tin of butter beans so this is the result and I have to say that all plates were cleaned with vigour.

This dish is like a rainbow and is delicious with some wholemeal buttered crusty bread.  Just scoop on and enjoy!

Try this dish with your own combination of vegetables or herbs.  A great way to clear out the fridge from those odds and sods that get left over.

Recipe type: Main Meal
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 large red onion, sliced
  • 75g chorizo, finely diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 large carrot, sliced
  • 1 large leek, sliced
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 large courgette, sliced
  • 150g / 6oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 x 400g tin butterbeans
  • 1 x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2tbs olive oil
  • 1 heaped tsp rosemary, freshly chopped
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Topping:
  • 2 slices stale wholemeal bread
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 190°C.
  2. Gently fry the onion, garlic, chorizo, carrot and leek for 4 minutes in the oil.
  3. Add the celery, mushrooms and courgettes and fry for a further 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Add the beans, tomatoes, tomato puree, rosemary, salt and pepper.
  5. Transfer to an oven proof serving dish.
  6. Make topping by whizzing up bread with paprika, parmesan and olive oil.
  7. Spread over top and bake for 15 minutes until topping is crispy.
Notes
Serve with a warm crusty wholemeal baguette. To make this dish vegetarian, simply omit the chorizo. As an alternative you could use 3 thick slices of bacon (chopped), fry well first then spread over the bottom of the dish ready to be topped with the vegetables and beans.

    I like the idea of this dish. I love Chorizo and many of the vegetables in the dish, it also seems really healthy. My only problem would be finding something to replace the butter beans I think as they are one of my pet hates sadly.

      Chickpeas?
