Try it Tuesday – chorizo and chickpeas


So this week we tried chorizo and chickpeas braised in cider, I found the recipe on Pinterest

to make this you will need

cooking oil

500g of cooking chorizo

4 x 400g tins of chickpeas – drained

200ml fresh beef stock

400ml dry cider (plus a little extra to serve – i used a 440ml can)

Large handful of fresh parsley roughly chopped

(I was able to purchase all the ingredients for this recipe from my local Aldi)


I started by chopping the chorizo in to disks and then cooked them in a bit of oil till they started to brown then I added all the chickpeas and stirred them until the chickpeas got coated in the chorizo oil. Next I added the stock and the cider and brought it to the boil before reducing the heat and letting it simmer till the liquid is reduced by at least half. I removed it from the heat and put the last of the cider and the parsley in, gave it one last stir and served it with salad.

It was ok, and very quick and simple but I’m not sure this is a recipe that I will be making again in a hurry, it need something and I’m not sure what that something is. I might have a think and see what I could add to it to give it that umph and maybe just maybe I’ll revisit it in a few months but for us this time not a winning dinner !!!
