This Spanish cocido hails from Madrid and is a hearty all-in-one meal, perfect for a chilly winter evening.
An easy to prepare slow cooked chicken and chorizo dish. Serve with rice. For the chorizo, don't use the pre-cut thin stuff - get an actual sausage!
A yummy, smoky stew that's satisfying even in hot weather! This is a light stew, so if you're looking for a hearty winter meal, this one probably isn't for you. Serve with ciabatta for a light snack or with rice for something a little more filling. Don't worry about this being neat, it's messy and rough and easy to cook! And it tastes good!
This is a very quick and easy meal that was passed down to me from my mum, who claims she invented it (I'm not sure that I believe her though). Done in a matter of minutes, great for last minute dinner parties! Guests will enjoy the variety of taste in this meal.
I made this with what little I had in the fridge and freezer on a Mother Hubbard day. It was difficult to choose the "cuisine" for this dish. I'm Scottish, but it's inspired by a tapas dish from my favourite Spanish restaurant Torres (Glasgow). Whatever, it tasted really good for something thrown together in a sparse kitchen. Let me know if you like it. If I were to change anything I'd probably add some red onion and maybe sprinkle over some toasted pine nuts, but this is it in the original form I know works.
Gorgeous winter warmer, made in one pot. A family favourite! Chicken, chorizo, colourful peppers, courgettes, potatoes and butter beans all go into this decidedly delicious dish! You can use chicken breast instead of chicken thigh.
This family paella recipe is simple, authentic, flavoursome, delicious and satisfying if you use good quality ingredients. I have catered for hundreds at a time with it and had no complaints, and I'm always being asked for my recipe so here it is! This recipe serves six.
I ate a similar recipe at a Beefeater Grill restaurant. Was so good and I wanted to make it for myself. After a bit of trial and error, I think I made an acceptable version of it. If you like it hot, add more chilli. If you don't, add less or none at all. This is a firm favourite with my family and the flavours all come together and make it nice. The smoky chorizo (which is a pork sausage so non-pork eaters are aware) and the sweetness of the sauce mix very well.
Perfect after a long day when minimum effort and maximum taste is desired. Super simple, super tasty! Just put it in the oven and leave it, what could be easier?:) Serve with a green salad and lots of allioli!
A typical Cajun recipe, this is full of spicy, complex flavours. With lots of rice and vegetables, it is a great dish to make a small amount of meat go a long way, and offers a healthy balance of protein and carbohydrate.
