Absolutely love this recipe! I had a slight store cupboard malfunction and forgot savoy cabbage and chilli flakes! so used red cabbage instead and, like others, used paprika and some Worcester sauce. It was my first time using chickpeas but i found this recipe so easy! Really lovely, the chorizo gives it all such a nice smokey taste. Crusty bread is a must to soak up all the gorgeous juices! Will definitely be making this again!

Had some chorizo to use up leftover from the Paella Fried Rice (on this site) so chose to make this. It was very easy and quick to make but next time I'd use less cabbage or substitute it for other veg out of personal preference. Overall fine but I'd recommend less cabbage more chorizo

Love this recipe, I've used various types of cabbage in this and though all good, savoy is still our favourite.
I always add a half teaspoon of chilli paste to this as we like it hot and serve with a large dollop of sour cream on top!

Really enjoyed this! I didn't have any cabbage so used baby spinach which I added after the 6 minute cooking time (I turned off the heat added the spinach then replaced the lid until wilted). As per previous suggestions I used a tin of 'chopped tomatoes with garlic' & added some smoked paprika. Served with crusty bread, yum!

It's a lovely recipe - it also works substituting chickpeas for butter beans.

Very bland on its own. You have to add flavor with seasoning.
