White beans with Chorizo - Easy dinner idea

White beans with chorizo

White beans with Chorizo

This recipe is adapted from a pressure cooker Alubia bean recipe from the blog

Despite growing up with a mother who loved her pressure cooker, a near accident in my teens has left me a little nervous to use them. I do most of my cooking in a vintage enameled cast iron pot I’ve been using for the past 16 years, it's not pretty but it works very well !


-          500g white beans (Alubia are a good choice)
-          1 large onion
-          4 cloves garlic
-          Paprika powder /Smoked Spanish paprika powder
-          Sea salt ( Maldon)
-          Olive oil
-          Black pepper
-          1/2 teaspoon sugar
-          1 or 2 crushed dry chili
-          1 Chorizo

- If you are using dried beans, soak over night and cook until halfway done.

- Leave only enough water to just cover the beans

- Slice and fry Chorizo with a little olive oil, add to beans.

- Use the oil dripping in the pan to fry the onion and garlic. When soft, sprinkle with paprika powder fry a minute longer then add to the beans.

- Add a little salt and crushed black pepper, sugar and chili. Leave to simmer on low heat until done.

- Serve with homemade bread or rolls.
