I absolutely love developing recipes, taking time to think of flavours and taste combinations but sometimes I also love throwing stuff together at the last minute to create a delicious dish and this Sausage, Chorizo and Orzo one pot stew was one of those meals that I literally thought of as I was making it.
It started as a traybake, with all the veg and sausages nestling in the dish. Simply roasted and eaten with some kind of side carb but then I realised I was feeling really lazy and just couldn’t be bothered to cook extra, so I added some stock to the dish and threw in some orzo pasta and created a wonderfully rich and unctuous, warming bowl of comfort food which was perfect for this frosty winter weather.
- 2 banna shallots – peeled and halved
- fennel – chopped
- button mushrooms – halved
- carrots – chopped
- green beans – chopped
- sausages – chopped
- chorizo – chopped. I used some wonderful La Gloria Rijoana from Martinez Somalo
- olive oil
- fresh oregano and rosemary
- 1 pint veg stock
- 1/2 glass white wine
- 100g orzo pasta
Pre-heat your oven to 200C / 376F
Throw all the veg into your dish followed by the sausages and chorizo. I like to keep my sausages and chorizo in big chunks. Place some fresh herbs on top and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then drizzle the oil generously all over.
Place in the oven for 30 mins. After this time pour over the stock and white wine and stir in the pasta. Pop it back in the oven for another 25 mins or until the orzo is cooked and the sausage are nicely brown.
