On Saturday The Scotsman proclaimed that the heat wave was set to continue and today the front page tells me that it’s all over – as of now!  Well despite being completely decked out in pastel shades and strappy shoes I have to admit that  it is a little on the chilly side now,  so I reckon it is time to cook up something a little more warming than a salad.


This is a really simple and tasty  stew which is packed with flavour from chorizo, paprika and coriander.  It is hard to beat the tantalising smell of garlic, onions and chorizo sizzling in a pan – one of life’s culinary pleasures.

This rustic stew is fantastic served with hunks of crusty bread and butter and a large glass of red wine.






One red onion sliced


Tablespoon of olive oil


2 cloves of garlic crushed


170g  chorizo cut into coins


300g chopped tomatoes


tablespoon chopped coriander


300g of mixed beans (I used a tin of three bean salad in water)


1 heaped teaspoon of paprika






Heat the oil in a pot


Add in the sliced onion, garlic and chorizo and cook for around 5 minutes on a medium heat


Add in the paprika, tomatoes and beans and simmer for around 20 minutes (add a little water if it seems too dry)


Add the coriander just before serving


Serve with crusty bread and a  big glass of wine
