Chorizo, a staple in Spanish cuisine, boasts a history as rich and robust as its flavour. Originating from the Iberian Peninsula, this cured sausage is traditionally seasoned with paprika, which gives it its distinctive red color and spicy kick. Chorizo’s versatility has made it a beloved ingredient in a variety of well-known Spanish dishes. It stars in the famous Paella, lending depth to the beloved rice dish, and in Fabada Asturiana, a traditional bean stew from Asturias. Its bold presence is also essential in Tapas, where it’s often served sliced alongside other delectable bites.

In this recipe, chorizo’s smoky and savory notes harmonize beautifully with the earthy kale and the tender, creamy beans, creating a dish that is not only nutritious but also satisfying and comforting. Whether you’re looking for a quick lunch, a delicious brunch option, or a light dinner, our Spanish Chorizo, Kale, and Beans on Toast is sure to impress with its vibrant flavors and wholesome ingredients.

·      1/2 x 225g Consortium-labelled Spanish chorizo ring – sliced
·      1 x 400ml tin butterbeans – drained
·      150g cavolo nero or kale – chopped
·      1 ripe avocado – chopped
·      Salt and pepper
·      Free range eggs
·      White wine vinegar
·      olive oil
·      sourdough bread


  • You will need a wide pan with a lid. Place the pan on a medium heat, add a splash of olive oil and throw in the chorizo slices.  Let them sauté for about 5 minutes, then throw in the butter beans and stir well.  Allow them to cook for a further 5 minutes. Stir in the chopped kale with some salt and pepper, then turn the heat off and place a lid on.  The kale will steam naturally and be perfectly cooked by the time you’ve poached your eggs.
  • To poach the eggs, ensure you’ve taken your eggs out of the fridge a good hour prior to using.  Crack an egg into a ramekin or small bowl. (It’s easier to drop into the boiling water this way.) Place a large pan filled with water on a high heat and bring the water to a rolling boil. Turn down the heat to medium, vigorously stir in a splash of white wine vinegar and carefully drop the egg into the vortex.
  • Allow to gently cook for 5 mins until softly boiled. Remove from the heat on a slotted spoon and set aside on some kitchen paper whilst you toast your bread and assemble.
  • Squish the chopped avocado onto your toast with a fork, then season with salt and pepper. Lay the chorizo, beans and kale on next, followed by the poached egg.  A final sprinkling of seasoning and a little of the chorizo oil from the pan.
