Sausage and Bean Stew

I've found the recipe I was looking for yesterday!

I saw a recipe for sausage and bean stew in a magazine a while back. I made it over a week ago and have been looking for that magazine ever since. It turns out I must have missed it while flicking though my magazine mountain.

The Autumn issue of the magazine Woman and Home 'Feel Good Food' called this 'Spanish-style sausage and bean stew'.

I altered a few things from the original recipe. Having made it, when I make this again I will crisp the chorizo but put it aside and add it at the end. I think it looses it's crispness in the cooking.
But that said, all in all the end result was an easy peasey very tasty stew indeedy!

Here's what you need to serve 4:

1 tbsp olive oil
3 rashers of bacon - chopped
8 chunky pork sausages
1 chorizo sausage - sliced
1 large onion - peeled and sliced
3 garlic cloves - peeled and crushed
3 tbsp tomato puree
1tbsp paprika
1 x 400g can of cannellini beans - drained and rinsed
1 x 400g can of chopped tomatoes
a small handful of fresh parsley - chopped
salt and pepper for seasoning

How to do it:

In a large flameproof casserole dish, cook the bacon for about 10 minutes until golden. Remove and set aside. Now add the oil to the same pan and cook the sausages until they too are nice a brown. Remove those and set aside with the cooked bacon.

Still using the same unwashed pan, cook the chorizo for a few minutes and then add the onions and garlic. Cook for a further 7 minutes or so. Don't let the onion brown too much.

Return the bacon and sausages to the pan along with the tomato puree, paprika and the tin of tomatoes. Leave to simmer uncovered for about 40 minutes. You want the mixture to reduce and thicken a little.

When it's all looking lovely, season with a little salt and pepper to your taste and stir in the beans. Cook for a further 5 minutes.

Sprinkle with the chopped parsley. I served mine with mashed potato with sliced, cooked greens stirred though them.
