Tip

Healthy benefits
Chickpeas are a great source of low-fat protein – so particularly useful for vegetarians. Chickpeas are also rich in fibre, iron and vitamins, plus a portion counts as 1 of your 5-a-day.

Method

  1. In a large frying pan, dry-fry the chorizo until golden for about 10 mins, then use a slotted spoon to scoop it from the pan and set aside.

  2. Add the onion and peppers to the pan and soften in the chorizo fat for 10 mins. Stir in the chickpeas and tomatoes, warming through.

  3. Pour in the red wine vinegar and season. Serve in bowls with handfuls of rocket on top.
