Winter Warmer

As summer ended in Sydney, it was as if the weather went straight downhill. 

The amount of rain we’ve had and the severe temperature drop was not fun at all.

One thing to make myself better was to cook a nice cosy dish!

Once again, I’ll state that I’m poor so the ingredients used are not the fanciest but ah well! 

Here’s my recipe (serves 2):

  • 2 medium chorizo sausages 
  • 1 tsp paprika 
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes 
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs 
  • 100ml of vegetable stock mixed in boiling water 
  • 2 cloves of garlic 
  • 100ml red wine
  • Half an onion
  • 1 packet of ready to heat brown rice 
  • Handful of spring onion to garnish 

1. Slice the chorizo into bitesize pieces, thinly chop the onion and dice the garlic.

2. Fry the onion in a little oil until translucent, add the spices and the chorizo and cook for 4 minutes. 

3. Add the garlic to the pan and fry for a further 2 minutes, on a low heat. 

4. Add the stock and wine to the mix. Simmer until the sauce thickens.

5. Cook the rice as per the packaging.

6. Once the sauce has halved in consistency, add the rice to the mixture. 

7. Mix through and plate up, garnishing the dish with sliced spring onions.

It was a delicious dish that I enjoyed for a late lunch and dinner the next day.

Let’s just hope the weather picks up…
