Recipe - Fabada Asturiana (Bean Stew from Asturias)

Unofficially the national dish of Asturias, this wonderful bean stew has earned a reputation for itself throughout Spain. Perhaps the most under-rated of all Spanish ingredients, the white beans and chickpeas from Northern Spain are a true delicacy in their own right. Fabes from Asturias, for example, have been specially bred for hundreds of generations for just one thing, to absorb as much flavor as possible to compliment their own buttery goodness. The Fabes and Judion grow is size by 2-3 times when cooked, all the while holding in all the rich flavors until you bite into them. These ultra-premium legumes do fetch an ultra-premium price, but the quality and flavor is without compare.

Basic Instructions

Add the oil to a large olla (traditional cast iron pot), over medium heat, and saute the onion, pepper, and garlic until just tender. To the onion mixture, add the ham and sausages. Cook for 3 minutes. In a bowl, mash 1 cup of the white beans and add to the olla. Next, add the remaining whole beans, chicken broth, and smoked paprika to the onion-sausage mixture. Simmer for 40 minutes. Add salt to taste. Serve and enjoy! We recommend serving in a terra-cotta clay cazuela.
