Moorish thing

Not sure what to call this – it’s a sort of Spanish/Moroccan fusion thing, using up bits and pieces that were in the fridge and cupboard.

  • half a chorizo ring, skin removed and cut into small pieces
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped finely
  • half a jar of “magic peppers” – marinated red peppers that magically do not cause indigestion
  • one 400g tin of plum tomatoes
  • one 400g tin of chickpeas, drained
  • 100g frozen spinach
  • half a teaspoon each cumin, coriander, chili powder and cinnamon
  • 250ml stock (I used mushroom but I imagine vegetable or chicken would work too)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 100g couscous

Put the chorizo bits and the chopped onion in a large frying pan and heat gently until the onions are soft.  Stir in the spices and let them heat through for a bit.  Then add the chopped magic peppers, the tomatoes and the chickpeas, with the hot stock.  Add in the frozen spinach and let it all bubble together for about 20 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste (shouldn’t need any salt because of the stock and the chorizo).  Cook the couscous according to the packet (usually adding a double quantity of boiling water and leaving it to stand for 5 minutes) and serve the Moorish thing on top of the couscous.
