Cabbage, Potato, Beans, Chili and Chorizo how does that sound on a cold afternoon? Perfect? Perfect! Yesterday when I looked outside I just knew it was cold out. Hold up...rewind...that should read...yesterday when I looked outside (after I had wiped the rivers of condensation off my windows) I just new that it was cold outside. Perfect! I thought...Cabbage stew it is!
And so, while Davey baked his usual seeded loaf I got to making a huge pot of Caldo Verde, Portuguese green broth, using the recipe I spied in January's edition of delicious magazine (no link on website, sorry). Slices of Chorizo are fried with onions and garlic and a green chili, and then simmered with chunks of potato until just cooked. In goes slices of winter cabbage and a tin of haricot beans and that is all. Simple, rustic and perfect for a cold Sunday afternoon.
I am not sure why the chorizo went a bit anaemic looking...but the flavours were certainly there!Tweet
