Merguez stew.

I made this a couple of weeks ago, before I came down with the plague, and it was definitely one of the tastiest things I've ever made!

It was very much a Chopped moment, in which my basket ingredients were whatever I had in the kitchen at the time, lol, but it basically went like this: I de-cased the merguez sausage and broke it into chunks in a large pan. Once they were browned, I removed them with a slotted spoon, leaving the oil behind. Once the oil was cool, I threw in three cloves of minced garlic and half a white onion, diced. Once they were soft, I added a cup of chicken broth, a can of diced tomatoes (drained), a can of butter beans (drained), about a cup of kale, a splash of cream, generous parsley, generous red pepper, black pepper, and salt.

Once that all cooked together for a bit (about five minutes or so) and started to reduce, I added the sausage back in and let it simmer for a few minutes.

And that was that! All that was left was to serve it up with some homemade bread, care of Iain. Yum!
