Love this soup! I’ve got a bit of a thing for butterbeans lately – after making some stuffed mushrooms with a cheesy butterbean filling for Simply Stacie about a month ago. I’ve been looking for things to do with them ever since - and this has turned out to be one of my favourites.
The delicately creamy butterbeans soak up the flavours from the chorizo and tomato to make it a hearty and delicious soup. I’ve added some watercress and feta to lighten it up and make it feel more like a spring dish, and I think it works perfectly.
If you LOVE that chorizo taste like me then why not give one of these recipes a try:
Sausage Pasta Bake with Chorizo and Brie
One Pot Creamy Tomato and Chorizo Rigatoni
Chicken Chorizo Puff Pastry Rolls
20 minutes from start to finish, you could easily serve this with some salad and maybe some crusty bread for a quick, after-work dinner.
Quick meals are something I’m all for at the moment. I’m trying to keep up with my regular 3 posts a week, but I’ve also taken on some more freelance work and I’m finding myself running around non-stop. A constant cycle of cooking, photographing, writing, social media and of course kitchen cleaning.
Not that I'm complaining! I love my job soooo much, and I’m so grateful to you guys for reading my blog and making it possible for me to call this work.
