Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil , plus extra for brushing
  • 100g cooking chorizo , skinned and diced
  • 1 tsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 red pepper , halved and deseeded
  • 100g fresh peas
  • 100g broad beans
  • 2 courgettes , sliced on the diagonal
  • 400g can butter beans , rinsed and drained
  • juice ½ lemon

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat grill to high. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chorizo and cook for 7-9 mins, until it is cooked through and has released its oil. Take chorizo out of the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Reduce heat, whisk in vinegar, then remove pan from heat.

  • STEP 2

    Put the pepper on a baking sheet, cut-side down then grill for 3-4 mins, or until the skin blisters and starts to turn black. Put the pepper in a bowl and cover with cling film. Once it is cool, peel off the skin, remove the seeds and then tear the pepper into strips.

  • STEP 3

    Cook peas and broad beans in boiling salted water for 1-2 mins, then tip into a big bowl of ice cold water to keep their bright green colour. Drain and set aside.

  • STEP 4

    Heat a griddle pan until hot. Brush the courgettes with a little bit of olive oil, then cook on both sides for 1-2 mins until just tender but not soft.

  • STEP 5

    Add the butter beans and rest of the ingredients to the pan with the dressing. Add the lemon juice and seasoning and gently toss everything together.
