Spanish Bean and Chorizo Stew-Fabada Asturiana

As the cold weather approaches, I start thinking of comfort food.

Food that warms the body and the soul.  Food that you can eat with your slippers on. Food that you can dip your bread into.

This is one of those dishes. Spanish, Meditteranean flavours combined to bring a mixture of smokiness, spice, sweet velvety textures and it is, most of all a dish you want to have plenty of bread to dip into the juices..

Although this is a traditionally Spanish dish from the Asturian region, it is also made in Italy, France and Portugal with slight variations. This is my favourite version.
