A beautiful winter soup with a lovely twist. This recipe comes from my favourite Czech book writer Halina Pawlowska and it is really delicious. More information about Halina’s Bean Soup here.
Total Time: 45 minutes
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 chorizo hot sausages, sliced
4 cloves of garlic, crushed, peeled and finely chopped
2 medium tomatoes, washed and diced
1 tin of good quality white beans in a tomato sauce
1 tin of red beans in a salted sauce, rinsed (liquid removed)
1 litre of a good meat stock
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika, ground coriander, chili, cayenne pepper
A handful of Fresh parsley, washed and hardly chopped
Sea salt and ground black pepper
Crème fraîche and fresh bread to serve with
Add onion, chorizo and garlic. Sauté all on medium heat until nicely golden, for about 5 minutes.
Next, stir in the tomatoes and all the beans (remove the liquid from the red beans, white ones leave with a delicious tomato sauce).
Pour one litre of a good quality meat stock. Flavour it up with all the spices (paprika, coriander, chili and cayenne pepper). Taste and taste. Season accordingly.
Finish with the fresh parsley.
The Bean Soup with Chorizo is delicious with a tablespoon of crème fraîche, some extra parsley and fresh bread. Dobrou chuť!
