Fab, easy recipe that even salad phobics can get on board with. Remember to check the amount of chorizo you're using if you're trying to be calorie conscious - the listed calorie count is optimistic for most chorizos. I served with a warm petit pain each, which finished the meal off nicely.

The calorie per servings is seriously misleading the amount of chorizo on it's own comes to more than the total meal amount of 354.

Really great recipe, so much better than I was expecting! Forgot to add the red wine vinegar so just used a little balsamic vinegar on each plate. Really tasty and quick.

Made this tonight for my partner and I. I halved the quantities as there were only two of us, but it was all delicious!!! Yum! So easy- took about 20 minutes total (I found I needed much less cooking time than the recipe called for but just judged it by sight). We both cleaned our plates entirely! I will definitely make again!

So simple and delicious. I added a clove of crushed garlic after the onion had softened, pre-roasted the peppers so added them with the chickpeas and doubled the vinegar. Filling, tasty and only one pan to wash up - no complaints in our house!

Lovely and fresh, added some toasted seeds and mixed salad instead of rocket. Hubby loved it...
