Cooking time




  • 75g basmati rice

  • 150ml chicken or vegetable stock

  • 30g chorizo, diced

  • 15g onion, diced

  • 1 clove of garlic, diced

  • Pinch of saffron

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 100g chopped tomatoes

  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley

  • Big squeeze of fresh lemon juice


  • Mix up the chicken / vegetable stock in a jug and add the saffron. Leave to infuse while you do the next steps.
  • Heat a little olive in a pot over medium heat. Add the chorizo and onion and cook for a few minutes until the chorizo is starting to brown and the onion has softened. Add the garlic and paprika and stir for a few seconds before adding the chopped tomatoes.
  • Stir for a few minutes to soften the tomatoes and then add the rice. Stir for a minute or so and then add the stock.
  • Cover the pot and leave to simmer gently for 10 minutes, until all the stock has been absorbed by the rice.
  • When the rice is done, remove from the heat but leave to sit with the lid on for 5 minutes. Then stir through the chopped parsley, a squeeze of lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
