We’ll Be Making More Clam, White Bean & Chorizo Stew All Summer

March 28, 2018

Clams, chorizo, and white beans are an unlikely flavor unit that work really well when thrown together in a pot to make the most flavorful stew. The use of white beans in this recipe brings a sort of chunky, almost creamy texture that complements the salty components of the dish.

When cooked properly and seasoned just right, clams are brine-y like the sea. Chorizo is rendered to bring out slightly sweet, salty, caramelized chunks of meat and leaves behind the most flavorful pool of fat. But if we’re being frank here, the white beans really brings this dish together with its soft, almost buttery pockets that absorbs every single flavor in the pot. All you need now is some crusty bread to soak in all that flavor—no juices left behind.

    It looks so good but kind of dry. I expected there to be some sauce.

    Does this recipe assumes the used of canned beans?
    Would you leave instructions for how to use fresh beans?
