Method

  1. Put a medium pan on the heat and tip in the tomatoes, followed by a can of water. While the tomatoes are heating, quickly chop the chorizo into chunky pieces (removing any skin) and shred the cabbage.

  2. Pile the chorizo and cabbage into the pan with the chilli flakes and chickpeas, then crumble in the stock cube. Stir well, cover and leave to bubble over a high heat for 6 mins or until the cabbage is just tender. Ladle into bowls and eat with crusty or garlic bread.

Great for winter. Can be varied a lot depending on which ingredients you have - garlic is a great idea ! Used caramelized red onion and pork sausages instead of chorizo.

Great recipe, nice and quick too. I didn't fancy cabbage but it worked very nicely with spinach and celery added a lovely crunch.

Lovely - followed other people's suggestion to add celery and pepper to make it even more filling and it was delicious. Makes a filling lunch on its own.

Very tasty and filling start to my 'Only having soup for dinner diet'! I added a little smoked paprika for an extra smokey flavour. Will definately be having this again but maybe with some differnt ingrediants next time.

As many others have said, this as an beautifully versatile dish. Those who think it's too bland have most likely used bland/cheapish chorizo. Gently frying it also improves the flavour - without you having to add the fat after frying. Just don't crisp the slices of chorizo too much as you still want some chewyness. This is also brilliant for quick meals for the army of friends who descend on you without notice.

Loved that! As others suggested I added a chopped red pepper, used spinach rather than cabbage. Doubled up the recipe using 2 tins tomatoes and added a little smoked paprika and chilli powder rather than flakes. Local shop had just slices of chorizo and chopped and fried a little first worked out great. Pleased I've plenty left for work lunch now!
