  • raw chorizo sausages 800-900g
  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • onion 1, finely chopped
  • celery 2 sticks, finely chopped
  • carrots 2, finely chopped
  • garlic 3 cloves, sliced
  • sweet smoked paprika 1 tsp
  • tomato purée 3 tbsp
  • chicken stock 600ml
  • chopped tomatoes 400g tin
  • bay leaves 4
  • rosemary sprigs 2
  • thyme 2 sprigs
  • cannellini and butter beans 400g tin of each, rinsed and drained


  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • butter 2 tbsp of melted
  • garlic 3 cloves, crushed
  • lemon 1, zested and 2 tsp juice
  • fresh white breadcrumbs 100g
  • flat-leaf parsley chopped to make 3 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Put the sausages and olive oil into a casserole over a medium heat. Cook, turning the sausages, until golden. Transfer to a plate.

  • Step 2

    Add the onion, celery and carrots to the pan (no need to add more oil as the chorizo sausages will release plenty), turn down the heat and cook 10-15 minutes or until softened. Stir in the garlic and paprika for a minute, followed by the tomato purée, stock, chopped tomatoes, herbs and seasoning. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.

  • Step 3

    Stir the beans and sausages into the pan. Transfer to a middle shelf in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the liquid is reduced to a thick sauce coating everything.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, for the topping, mix together the oil, butter, garlic, lemon zest and juice. Mix the breadcrumbs and parsley in a large bowl, then drizzle over the garlicky oil and stir thoroughly with some seasoning to evenly coat all the crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the casserole, pat down to a flat crust then bake for another 15-20 minutes or until dark golden and crisp.
