  • 4 cooking chorizo sausages, cut into thick slices



    A coarsely textured, spiced pork sausage widely used in Spanish and Mexican cooking. It is made…

  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin seed
  • 400g can cherry tomato
  • juice 1 lemon



    Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…

  • 400g can chickpea, drained
  • 1 handful flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • toasted sourdough bread, to serve


  1. In a frying pan, fry the chorizo, onion and garlic for 5 mins or until the chorizo is browning on the outside. Drain the excess oil, then stir in the spices.

  2. Pour in the tomatoes, lemon juice, chickpeas and seasoning. Bubble for 5 mins more to thicken slightly, then sprinkle over the parsley. Serve with toasted sourdough.

How tasty was that??? Fantastic meal - we had it with ciabatta - took less time than some awful ready meal and so easy to make - really impressed.

Just didn't enjoy this one - too tart (as others have said) even after adding a little bit of sugar and I didn't find the ingredients came together. It was quick and simple to make, but don't think I'd bother again

Nice recipe. Obviously it depends on the actual lemon you use but the juice of a lemon is quite a lot. Best to start with the juice of one half and use the other to tweak the final flavour.

Easy to make and tasty but don't know how you got the calories, mine came out much higher. But does give large portions so next time I will reduce the amount slightly

A very simple, quick and healthy meal. Use high quality tomatoes (it makes a difference!). The lemon juice is essential. Fast becoming a regular evening meal.

Thoroughly enjoyed this & it was very easy to make. It would need to be for me! Just earned me some brownie points!

Chickpeas are always great, and this is quick enough for a working lunch. Nice

This looks lovely - but how about giving a weight for the chorizo, since they come in quite a variety of lengths?

Thanks for your question. We source ingredients from supermarkets to make our recipes easier for people to recreate at home. A standard pack weighs 200-250g which is suitable for this recipe. A little more or less won't make a big difference. Hope that's a bit clearer!

What are Chickpeas?

Chickpeas are small legumes popular in Middle Eastern cookery, you can buy them cooked and canned or dried.

Hi there, Am I correct in assuming that the Good Food and Food sites are now one and the same? Have my saved recipes from both sites been combined and saved? I like that idea. Cheers.

Have cooked this numerous times, but now I always omit the lemon, in my opinion it just doesn't need it, otherwise a fabulous recipe. Freezes really well.
