Chorizo & Chickpeas

On 25th April 2016, This was Dinner

What to do with a load of unused stuff in the fridge/pantry?

Yes, I know it is hard to believe but I have an unused chorizo! No, I don’t come down in the middle of the night like Nigella and eat it directly from the fridge! What do you think I am?

As Summery as this dish looks it has been blooming freezing this week. In fact, as I sit here in what is the hottest sunshine we have had this year, only a couple of days after this pic was taken we had snow!

I used dried chickpeas and did all the hard work with them yesterday.

Get set…

  • Thickly slice a chorizo
  • Halve some cherry tomatoes
  • Cut some bread into big chunks
  • Slice some lettuce
  • Grate some parmesan
  • Chop some mint
  • Get olives, lime, oil & seasoning ready

Throw it together…

Heat a pan and cook the chorizo until starting to crisp, remove and set aside.

Add the bread chunks to the pan and cook, tossing regularly, until crisp.

Toss the tomatoes and chickpeas in a little oil and squeeze in some lime juice. Season well and add the mint.

Dish it up…

Pop the chickpeas on a bed of lettuce then scatter over the olives, the chorizo and the croutons then sprinkle with parmesan and another squeeze of lime juice.


Obviously you can just go with the flow with this one and throw in whatever you have to hand.

Any thoughts?
