Gog Magog Beans with Chorizo

Gog Magog Beans with Chorizo

by Nick Saltmarsh

This rich and satisfying dish was inspired by Leon's Butterbean and Chorizo Tapa, replacing the Butterbeans with our large white (and buttery!) Gog Magog Beans.

Serves: 4


  • 200g White Gog Magog Beans
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 200g Chorizo Sausage
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1 medium Onion
  • 1 medium Carrot
  • 2 sticks Celery
  • 1 x 400g tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • Zest of 1 Orange
  • 500ml Stock
  • Bunch of Thyme


  1. Soak the beans overnight, rinse, place in a pan and cover with plenty of cold water. Bring to boil and boil for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for around 45 minutes until tender but not too soft. Drain the beans and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the chorizo sausage and cook until it starts to brown.
  3. Add the garlic, onions, carrot and celery, cover and cook over a low heat for 10 minutes.
  4. Add the tinned tomatoes and simmer for a further 15 minutes.
  5. Add the beans, stock, bay leaves, orange zest and thyme.
  6. Cover and place in an oven at 160°>C / 300°F for 1½ to 2 hours.
  7. Leave to rest - or serve immediately if you can't wait!

Barley & Lentil Mejadra

by Sarah Cotterell and Aitana Infante

Mejadra - or Mujaddara - is a simple but perfect store cupboard combination of lentils, rice or another grain, spices and crispy onions. You can find subtle variations across the Middle East but each is equally comforting and delicious. This version uses Hodmedod's Pilau Mix #2 in which the nutty emmer grains make a delicious British-grown substitute for the more usual rice, alongside our earthy olive green lentils.
