Saturday Supper - Kale and Chorizo Stew

I know, before I even begin typing this recipe, that Kath will run away screaming, and there may even be some who think that kale is only something you'd give to cattle :( But, I tried this recipe for the first time the other week and it's delicious, nourishing and a great 'one pot' main dish:

Kale and Chorizo Stew

Serves four - more like three at most!

2 tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, peeled and sliced
150g chorizo, diced
200g kale, shredded
½ litre vegetable or chicken stock, made from 1 stock cube
1 x 420g can butter beans in water
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and diced
1 tbsp dried mixed herbs
1 tsp paprika
1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes

Heat the oil in a large pan and fry the onion and chorizo for a few minutes until the onion has softened. Toss in the kale, stock, butter beans, squash, mixed herbs, paprika and tomatoes. Season to taste.

Bring the mixture to the boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, until the squash and kale are tender.

Things I do: nothing much really, I bought the chorizo ready diced in a small packet from the deli chiller at our local supermarket rather than buy a big 500g whole one. Served with mashed potato to soak up the lovely juices.

Yummy - enjoy!



  1. Ooooh - that looks yummy :-)
    Out here in Greece we eat the green tops from the Beetroot.... ultra yummy... and all sorts of 'greens' that are really weeds :-)

  2. This looks delish Di! I love seeing your recipes - they all look sooo good.

    Oh by the way one of your cards has inspired me for our club theme this fortnight. Check out my blog later and you will see which one - I have given you a mention as well plus a link!

    Hope that's OK but I do like your cards and this one fitted the theme perfectly!

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  3. Sounds yummy. Been reading a lot lately about sautéing kale in the skillet in a bit of olive oil, haven't tried it yet. I'm drooling just reading the ingredients. TFS & Hugs
