This spicy spanish stew recipe is a really warming and easy meal that is perfect for those cold, wintery nights. The smokey, slightly spicy flavours paired with the tangy, rich tomato sauce results in a lovely hearty and comforting meal.
I love digging my slow cooker out when it drops a little colder because it just makes evening meals incredibly fuss free so I usually cook this in there on high for around five hours. However, if you don’t have a slow cooker you can easily make this on the hob, just follow the method below.
The recipe for this Spanish inspired stew was a happy accident and it first came about because I had no idea what to make for dinner one night and ended up throwing whatever I could find that needed eating into the slow cooker. Due to this, the vegetables listed are interchangeable and you can just use whatever you have to hand, meaning this is a great meal to reduce food waste.
The chorizo substitute adds a lovely salty flavour, however, if you do not eat meat substitutes you could just omit this ingredient. The cumin, paprika and cayenne pepper in the recipe adds a little bit of warmth to this spanish stew without being too overpowering. If you prefer your food with a little more heat then feel free to increase the amount of cayenne pepper or even add a fresh chilli, alternatively you could omit it entirely if you’re not keen.
