Method

  1. Fry the chorizo in a large frying pan, until it releases its oil. Add the onion, celery, red pepper and garlic, and cook until softened.
  2. Stir in the wine, plum tomatoes and seasoning and simmer for 15 mins stirring occasionally to break up the tomatoes, until the sauce thickens.
  3. Add the beans or chickpeas and simmer for a further 5 mins. Sprinkle generously with parsley and serve hot, or just warm.
