Nigel Slater’s Chickpea and Chorizo Stew

One of my staples since what feels like the beginning of time now is Nigel Slater’s chickpea and chorizo stew.

I found it on his website when I was still living in London. It’s perfect for all types of weather but obviously smashing for winter. And it’s also perfect for freezing. I always have a steady supply in my freezer for when I come home on a rainy day.

Nigel serves it with bread but I think it’s filling enough on its own.

Nigel Slater's Chickpea and Chorizo Stew

The perfect winter warmer to come home to. Earthy, with a mild heat from the chorizo and some nice depth from the sherry.

  • 2 large onions coarsely chopped
