I’m not a big meat eater, and I know processed meat is meant to be soooo bad for us, but don’t you just have days where you want to gorge on meat? Just me?
Most of the recipes I make can be easily made vegetarian, as I don’t eat that much meat as a rule, I kind of grew up learning it was a “weekend treat” rather than something eaten mid week and it’s so expensive these days. This is one you really can’t make vegetarian, sorry veggie friends!
Chorizo, Sausage and Bacon Spicy Rice
- 4 inch piece chorizo sausage
- 3 pork sausages (I used Heck)
- 1 small onion
- 3 rashers of bacon
- 1 red pepper
- 1/2 punnet chesnut mushrooms
- 100g cooked brown rice
- Rapeseed oil, for frying
- 2 cloves garlic
- Handful of fresh basil
- 1/2 tin chopped tomatoes
- Splash of red wine (optional)
- 1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper (optional)
- 2 tsp tomato paste
Chop the bacon, chorizo, mushrooms, peppers and onions into small pieces. Finely chop the garlic. Remove sausages from their casings and chop into small chunks. In a large pan, soften the bacon, chorizo and sausage pieces together. Once starting to brown, add the rest of the vegetables and the garlic to soften for 5-6 minutes or so. Add the tomatoes, wine and tomato puree and reduce down to a simmer for ten minutes or so. Add your cooked rice and basil and serve!
