  • 3 garlic clove, sliced
  • 100ml dry sherry (we used Fino)
  • 2 x 400g cans butter beans, drained
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 85g bread, torn into pieces

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Heat the oil, fry the chorizo for a few mins until slightly crisp, then scoop out, leaving the oil behind. Add the leeks and half the garlic; cook for 5 mins until soft. Pour in the sherry, beans and stock. Season, then bubble for 5 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, blitz the bread to coarse crumbs with the remaining garlic. Tip the leek mixture into an ovenproof dish, stir in the chorizo and scatter over the crumbs. Bake for 10 mins until golden, then serve with crusty bread.

WE'RE OFF TO BARCELONA NEXT WEEK SO WANTED SOMETHING TO GET US IN TO THE MOOD....THIS HIT THE MARK, DELICIOUS, WILL DEFINATELY BE LOOKING OUT FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS ON THE MENUS OUT THERE.
DID PUT TWICE AS MUCH CHORIZO IN THOUGH AS I DIDN'T THINK 75G WAS ENOUGH. :)

A great midweek supper - I used masala as I didn't have any sherry. Also blitzed some fresh parsley in with the breadcrumbs to use it up.

Very tasty. I used Blandys madeira as I didn't have any sherry. and I also added grated cheddar to the breadcrumb topping.

Absolutely yummy - making this for the second time but as greedy folk I put in extra chorizo too!

Well worth doing, the only addition I made was to add some Parmesan chesse in with the breadcrumb topping. Delicious!

We thought this was delicious - I used wholemeal bread for the crumb topping and a Knorr ham stock cube as I'd run out of the vegetable ones. Because my family love chorizo so much I added a little more than the recipe suggested (200g) and I am glad I did as I think the amount stated might not have been quite enough for the meat-loving men!

I added some Peppadew peppers for some extra spice and colour.
