Chickpea, Spinach and Chorizo Stew

I found this recipe on Mumsnet last year sometime but have adapted it a little bit. Very easy and it makes enough for 6 people - I store portions in the freezer for lazy days!
Tin of chopped tomotoes
Tin of chickpeas
400mls chicken stock
100g fresh spinach
1 medium onion finely chopped
Half a pepper chopped (any colour) 
100g Chorizo (the cured sausage kind) peeled, sliced and halved
2 cloves of garlic crushed - more for garlic fiends! 
Bouquet Garni
1 teaspoon Paprika 
1/4 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
Splash of red wine vinegar
Tablespoon of tomato puree

You can of course easily make this a veggie dish by using veg stock and omitting the chorizo or as Sugarpuffish  just mentioned, use a veggie sausage :)

1. Saute onion, garlic and pepper for a few minutes - don't add too much oil as the chorizo will add quite a        bit.
- Add the Chorizo and cook for a few more minutes
2. Add chopped tomatoes, stock, red wine vinegar, tom puree, bouquet garni, both paprika's and seasoning
- Bring to the boil and simmer on a low heat for around 30 minutes

3. Add the chickpeas and cook for another 10 minutes
4. Add the spinach, cover and cook for 5 minutes
 - Uncover and stir in spinach

I think this is best served with rice, Enjoy!


  1. Looks delicious and easy to make, my kind of recipe, I would substitute for a veggie sausage as don't eat meat but that's easily done :)

    1. That reminded me I was going to mention veggie substitute! Let me know if you make it :)

  2. That looks lovely! I'm about to start uni so I'm on the hunt for easy recipes - especially now the nights are drawing in and I need some winter warmers! I'll definitely be trying this out xx

    1. Definitely warms the cockles! Let me know how you get on :)

  3. This sounds really yummy! xx
