tomato frito

Bean Stew

Hi!

Today I have one of my favorite stew- ish recipes for you. This dish is really nice for those rainy and colder days. It doesn’t take too long to make and stores well in the fridge for a few days, so I would certainly make more if I were you ;).

You will need:

  • 125 grams of chopped vegetables (I used an Italian mix with courgette, leek, bell pepper and onions)
  • 200 grams of brown beans
  • 1 pork sausage
  • 75 grams of chorizo sausage
  • 200mL of tomato frito/ tomato cubes/ passata
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • pepper

Let’s get started!

  1. Cut your chorizo and pork sausage in cubes of about 1 cm. I leave the skin on the pork sausage, it still can be quite a fuss to cut, since it’s soft, but a sharp knife should make the job easier.
  2. Heat a wok or skillet and put in the sausage and chorizo on a medium to low fire. Do not add oil, the chorizo will be releasing fat as it cooks.
  3. Drain and rinse the beans. Add the veggies to the meat and saute for about a minute.
  4. Then add the beans and the tomato frito. Add the herbs and pepper to taste. Let it simmer slightly and enjoy!

I tend to eat this with some bread, so dip in the leftover sauce. Today I had a pumpkin seed and cheese roll, which was a really good combination.

Leftover ideas:

  • Bake the chorizo and put it in your couscous salad, such a delicious addition
  • Use the tomato frito/ cubes/ passata the next day for some home made pasta sauce
  • In my grocery store the pork sausages are sold by the pair, so I used the other in a sausage and bacon carbonara.
  • The other chopped veggies can also be sauteed and added to couscous, or a pasta sauce or even a filling for enchiladas.

Lately I have been planning my food again and I absolutely love it. Maybe I’ll write a brief article about it.

Have a lovely weekend!
