I was originally going to serve this with a lemon and mint couscous but then realised I didn’t have any couscous so I’ve said it serves two, but you could stretch it to four with couscous or rice.
  • 1 TBSP of olive oil
  • 2 red onions, sliced thinly
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 thin chorizo, 15 cm in length, roughly cut diagonally
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 400g tin of chickpeas, rinsed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 450 ml of veg stock
  • Couple of pinches of dried thyme
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Couple of pinches of dried sage
  • Natural Yoghurt
  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, sauté the onion and garlic for 3-5 minutes until they soften. Add the Chorizo and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add the paprika, stir and cook for a further minute.
  2. Transfer to the slow cooker. Add the chickpeas, bay leaves, vegetable stock and thyme, mix well. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Thirty minutes prior to serving add the lemon juice and sage.
  3. I’d recommend serving on a bed of couscous, with flatbread and yoghurt.

Slow Cooker Chorizo and Sweet Potato Soup

When I first put all the ingredients in the slow cooker, I really wasn’t convinced and if I’m honest, I thought it was going to be gross. But, I was pleasantly surprised as it was gorgeous and we’ve had it at least another 4 times since.
