Nigel Slater’s Simple Suppers – Chorizo Sausage & Bean Soup

Just watched the latest episode of Nigel Slater’s Simple Suppers show and loved his Chorizo Sausage & Bean Soup and the similarity with the Chorizo Soup we made for The Secret Supper Club!

Chorizo & Bean Soup

  • chilli flakes


  1. chop garlic, onions, carrots, celery, tomatoes & oregano
  2. add fennel seeds, chilli flakes & orange zest

  5. simmer; stir in more basil or oregano to serve & finish with orange zest

    I have made this, left out chilli flakes and substituted with cayenne pepper. I also added potatoes, absolutely delicious

    I make this alot! I leave out the orange and cook it down so its more of a stew. We have it with either mash potato or crusty bread

    I’ve made this several times and it is delicious. I would say dont miss out the orange peel as it adds something to the whole dish. I serve it with fresh tagliatelle

    As with the other Samantha, I too add potatoes. A wonderfully tasty one pot meal served with crusty bread.
