Griddled Chorizo on a Pickled Fennel, Lentil and Tomato Salad

When I was out to lunch recently I had a dish which came with quick pickled cucumber and courgette salad, it was so delicious. I did this version using fennel as it holds up well to flavouring and I knew it wouldn’t get too soft. The pickling liquid isn’t too overpowering at all it actually…

Pot Roast Pheasant with Butter Beans and Chorizo

I love summer and I’m sad to see it go but on the other hand the produce this time of year is amazing. This one pot is so comforting and healthy. I find roasted pheasant a bit dry so pot roasting it keeps it really moist. The butter beans are so tasty and the chorizo…

End of Summer Chicken, Chorizo, Courgette and Tomato One Pot

We have been so lucky with our late summer vegetables this year. The tomatoes aren’t as sweet as the height of summer so they work really well being cooked. This is a light tasty one pot dinner using up the last bits of summer vegetables. The chorizo adds a really nice smokiness and meaty flavour….

Sweet Potato, Chorizo and Feta Frittata

Baked Stuffed Tomatoes with a Parmesan Crumb Recipe

I have wanted to try baked tomatoes for ages. I did stuffed peppers a while back and they turned out good. As the summer is starting to wind down I really wanted to have a go. In my local grocers they had some large tomatoes in stock, perfect I thought. The chorizo works so well…

Warming Roasted Squash and Chorizo Soup Recipe

I love soup and I think squash works so well as when it is roasted it releases a lovely sweet flavour. Chorizo is another fridge staple in our house and when mixed in this soup you get a smoky slightly spicy depth of flavour. There isn’t much not to like about this if you enjoy…

Red Wine and Chorizo Risotto Recipe

A risotto is our fast food as it can be so flexible with its ingredients and cooked in 30 minutes. We add frozen veg to ours and we always have chorizo and leek in the fridge. While going through our cookbooks we came across a red wine risotto in Angela Hartnett’s book and thought we…

Monkfish on Spiced Beans with a Chorizo Crumb Recipe

I love monkfish it is so meaty and sweet. I wish is was still as cheap as use to be when used for scampi in the olden days. We do a lovely recipe which is lemon and pepper monkfish medallions (recipe here) but we thought we would try something more wintery this time. This dish…
