Chickpea and Chorizo Stew
I really enjoyed watching 'Toast' on tv at Christmas time which is based on the autobiography of chef Nigel Slater. I went on his website after watching it to see if there was anything vegan.
What did catch my eye in the Winter section was a lovely simple recipe for Chickpeas with Chorizo. I veganised it with Redwoods Cheatin Chorizo Style Chunks, in my opinion the best fake meat substitute around. I love putting them in scrambled tofu too. I omitted the dried chillis as the chorizo is spicy enough for me on it's own. I used a tin of tomates instead of fresh, only 1 tin of chickpeas (Suma - the best tinned ones I've found) and my left over Christmas sherry was Harveys rather than a dry style. It was so delicious served with baked sweet potatoes, crusty bread and corn chips. I think this will become at regular dish in my household!
