A few weeks ago i went out for dinner with my bestie and i had these beans that were so full of flavor and so delicious. I fell in love with it and wanted to make my own when i got home. The saltiness of the chorizo, tanginess of the tomatoes and and creaminess of the feta that is slightly baked and starting to get soft. Such a great dish for breakfast lunch or dinner.
1 Chorizo Sausage or good salami (approx 200g block), cut into 1cm slices
1 Tin Cannellini Beans, washed
2 Tins Diced Tomatoes
1/2 Tablespoon Paprika
1/2 Tablespoon Onion Powder
80g Feta, crumbled
Crusty Bread to serve
Pre-heat oven to 180'c
In a cold frying pan place the sliced chorizo and fry on a med-high heat until golden and crispy.
Meanwhile in a saucepan add the beans, tomatoes, paprika and onion powder and cook on a med heat until hot.
Once the chorizo and cooked add them to the tomato mixture and stir to combine, then transfer to an oven safe dish. Spread crumbled feta over the top and place in oven for 15-20mins or until feta slightly melts. Serve hot with crusty bread.
Note: To add an extra bit of decadence add 2 poached eggs.
