Butter Bean, Chorizo and Red Onion Soup

I love this recipe from Gordon Ramsay's book 'Fast Food', its really delicious and so quick to make. Its also really nice with cannellini beans.


225g chorizo sausage, skin removed
3 tablespoons of olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
2 Spanish onions, peeled and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely sliced
few thyme sprigs
2 x 420g cans of butter beans, drained and rinsed
sea salt and black pepper
squeeze of lemon juice
large handful of Italian parsley, roughly chopped


Chop the chorizo into small pieces. Put the kettle on to boil.

Heat the olive oil in a heavy based saucepan and add the onions, garlic and thyme. Cook, stirring for two minutes then add the chorizo.

Tip in the butter beans and pour in just enough boiling water to cover them. Bring to a simmer and cook gently for about ten minutes.

Season generously with salt and pepper and add a squeeze of lemon juice. Scatter over the chopped parsley and ladle the soup into warm bowls to serve.
