Leek, butter bean & crispy chorizo soup


Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 30 mins
Easy Serves 6


30g unsalted butter
olive oil, for frying
2 large leeks, sliced
1 large garlic clove, crushed
2 x 400g cans butter beans, drained and rinsed
800ml hot chicken or vegetable stock
4 tbsp crème fraîche, plus extra to serve
225g chorizo, finely cubed
4 rosemary sprigs, leaves picked and finely
bread, to serve


Step 1

Heat the butter and a glug of olive oil in a casserole over a
medium heat. Add the leeks and fry for 15 mins until softened
and beginning to turn golden brown. Stir through the garlic and
cook for a further 1 min.

Step 2

Tip the butter beans into the pan, pour over the hot stock and
simmer, uncovered, for 10 mins. Blitz to a smooth consistency
with a hand-held blender, then stir in the crème fraîche and
season to taste. Keep warm over a low heat.

Step 3

Meanwhile, fry the chorizo in a small glug of olive oil in a frying
pan over a medium heat for 5 mins or until oily and crispy. Stir in
the rosemary, cooking for a further minute. Ladle the soup into
bowls and top with the rosemary and chorizo mixture, as well as
any oil left in the pan. Serve with some crusty bread
