For a dinner party main meal that’s easy, quick and only uses one pot, you can’t go wrong with this lovely autumn recipe.

Kale is such a popular ingredient at the moment thanks to its high vitamin content and when combined with the protein and benefits of chickpea, it makes for a really healthy dish.

In this recipe, tasty chorizo adds a depth of delicious flavour, while mini new potatoes help to add carbs to fill you up.

Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or just want something easy you can whip up for dinner and then freeze the leftovers, this delicious dish will become a new family favourite.



  1. Heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and cook on a low heat until softened slightly. Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the chorizo, turn up the heat and cook for another 2 minutes until the fat starts to seep out – if there's a lot, drain some off, but leave about 2tbsp in the pan.

  2. Add the chilli flakes (if using), tomatoes, sugar, lemon juice and seasoning. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the stock and potatoes. Cook, covered, for 10 minutes; uncover and simmer gently for 10 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft, adding the chickpeas for the final 5 minutes.

  3. Stir through the kale, bring back to a simmer and serve garnished with the parsley and spring onions.
