Chickpea, chorizo & spinach stew
For a healthy, warming supper that takes little effort or time, you can’t beat this simple one-pan dish
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
- 3-4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 carrot finely diced
- 1 celery stick finely diced
- few thyme sprigs
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
- 200 g chorizo diced
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp hot smoked paprika
- 2 x 410g/14oz cans chickpeas rinsed and drained
- 1-2 tbsp sherry vinegar
- 400 g bag spinach leaves washed and drained
Heat the oil in a large pan, then gently fry the onion for 3-4 mins until it begins to soften. Stir in the carrot, celery, thyme and bay leaves. Season, then cook for 2-3 mins, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, chorizo, cinnamon and smoked paprika. Gently fry until the vegetables soften and the chorizo starts to release its oils and crisp up.
Stir in the chickpeas, vinegar and 150ml water, then bring to a simmer for 1-2 mins until the chickpeas have heated up. Add the spinach, then stir through the chickpeas until it wilts a little. Remove from the heat, season to taste, then serve warm with crusty bread.
