On Saturday The Scotsman proclaimed that the heat wave was set to continue and today the front page tells me that it’s all over – as of now! Well despite being completely decked out in pastel shades and strappy shoes I have to admit that it is a little on the chilly side now, so I reckon it is time to cook up something a little more warming than a salad.
This is a really simple and tasty stew which is packed with flavour from chorizo, paprika and coriander. It is hard to beat the tantalising smell of garlic, onions and chorizo sizzling in a pan – one of life’s culinary pleasures.
This rustic stew is fantastic served with hunks of crusty bread and butter and a large glass of red wine.
One red onion sliced
Tablespoon of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic crushed
170g chorizo cut into coins
300g chopped tomatoes
tablespoon chopped coriander
300g of mixed beans (I used a tin of three bean salad in water)
1 heaped teaspoon of paprika
Heat the oil in a pot
Add in the sliced onion, garlic and chorizo and cook for around 5 minutes on a medium heat
Add in the paprika, tomatoes and beans and simmer for around 20 minutes (add a little water if it seems too dry)
Add the coriander just before serving
Serve with crusty bread and a big glass of wine
