(Very) Quick Chorizo and Bean Stew

This is a great hangover meal, though it's only recommended for later on in the afternoon, when you can actually stomach the thought of eating. This works well because you get lots of fibre from the beans, nutrients from the tomatoes and chorizo is a fantastic hangover cure (something to do with the mild spice and meatiness.) It's speedy to put together - 10minutes is all.

(A word of warning - if you have a crippling hangover don't eat anything, apart from maybe toast. Particularly advisable if you've had a colourful combination of drinks the night before.. trust us.)

A good few chunky slices of chorizo sausage
1 finely chopped onion
1 (or 2) garlic cloves, finely sliced
1 tin of tomatoes
1 tin of beans (whatever takes your fancy, although not baked beans) - or chickpeas
A spilling handful of parsley

To cook:
Fry your onion over a medium heat for a few minutes.
Add the garlic and chorizo to fry for about 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and beans (or chickpeas) simmer until thoroughly heated through.
Add your parsley at the last minute and don't wolf down too quickly. Eat with a good slice of toasted ciabatta.


  1. that does look good. I would just have to convince my husband to make it for me as hangovers tend to last all day for lame.

  2. Looks freak'n amazing. Chorizo is awesome. Don't want to know what's in them, but they're awesome.

  3. Sound of stomach growling... not mine - me Vegie head - but Hubby... Whoooaah! He's lovin it!!

  4. Oh yes, I need to gorge on that now! Ab Fab and I am felling needy for Chorizo and beans......

  5. This looks really good and filling. Also an excellent one for the student budget.
