METHOD

  1. Before starting the recipe, soak the beans in cold water overnight. More information on how to soak and cook beans to perfection here: https://brindisa.com/pages/spanish-heirloom-beans
  2. Drain the beans and put into a pan or terracotta pot with the onion, leek, carrot, panceta and chorizo and cover with fresh cold water.
  3. Bring to the boil and skim off any foam that comes to the surface.
  4. Turn down the heat and preferably place a diffuser underneath the casserole.
  5. Simmer very, very slowly, ideally for 2 hours, until the beans are cooked, but still intact and creamy inside, though not mushy – start testing after 45 minutes.
  6. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, put in the garlic and paprika and fry briefly, then add to the bean pot.
  7. Continue to cook slowly for about 10 minutes, to allow the flavours to mingle, then take off the heat and leave to rest for 30 minutes, so the beans settle before serving, to help them absorb the flavours a bit more.
  8. Warm through if necessary before serving.
