  1. Boil the kettle. In a non-stick frying or shallow pan with a lid, fry the onion, peppers, chorizo and garlic in the oil over a high heat for 3 mins. Stir in the rice and chopped tomatoes with 500ml boiling water, cover, then cook over a high heat for 12 mins.

  2. Uncover, then stir – the rice should be almost tender. Stir in the prawns, with a splash more water if the rice is looking dry, then cook for another min until the prawns are just pink and rice tender.

I thought this tasted of nothing....totally bland, looks very promising but just missing something, sorry :(

Made this and enjoyed it. I like spicy food, so added half a red chilli and a splash of hot sauce. However, I felt something was still missing. I would make this agin, but think next time I will use a chicken stock cube.

Yummy recipe.... added some turkey breast diced and used 2 x chicken oxo and some paprika in the water for the rice and all my family loved it. I served it with some crusty bread which mopped up the juices ! Will definitely do this recipe again and again.

It's boring and bland. Little bit of salt, chilly, lemon juice, pepper, maybe even tinny bit of sugar. Only then we have flavour. I often make it, but add courgette, cook rice separately and then serve covered with delicious tomato-vegi souse. It has to have a flavour, spicy is good.

I've made this loads of times, it's so easy and really tasty although you definitely need to add salt. I put the cooked frozen prawns in right at the end and then just heat through.

I've cooked a lot of recipes from the BBC Good Food site and magazine and this is the first big disappointment - very, very bland and I won't be repeating it. I wish I'd thought to use stock instead of water, that might have helped but even adding a large dollop of soy sauce at the very end didn't help. What a shame!

This dish was absolutely delicious. It was super tasty and we couldn't believe how quick and simple it was. We added some chicken stock instead of water to add a little extra flavour which worked perfectly. We followed the hob version. I will be making again and again. Will try with brown rice time instead of white to make it a little healthier.

I found this tasty but lacking a little something. I would definitely eat it again as its a great low fat recipe. I would add chopped chilli and perhaps some paprika next time. I would also use chicken or veg stock as it tasted a bit watery. I used cooked chicken instead of prawns.

Easy and delicious.

This recipe is lovely. I made a few alterations such as using chicken stock rather than water and arborio rice rather than long grain. I also added extra chorizo, replaced the prawns with chicken, and used chipotle chilis to add heat and smokey flavour. It was seriously delicious. I will definitely be making this again.
