Chorizo and chickpea hash is the perfect weekend brunch or supper dish, using leftovers or whatever appears to be left in the fridge from the week.
Chorizo and chickpea hash is a dish that I make regularly, using up whatever I have left in the fridge. It’s a dish I often serve for a quick dinner, when I’m time poor and I need something on the table quickly. However regardless of how long it takes to cook, it’s delicious and packed full of flavour.
This recipe for chorizo and chickpea hash is by no means original. Search “chorizo hash” on Pinterest and you’ll come up with many variations worldwide. A hash is simply a leftover dish thrown together with what’s at hand. Using up what we have in the store cupboard or lying around in the refrigerator. Simple, but nonetheless the appeal is Universal.
The recipe is a regular mid week supper in my house. I always have chorizo, chickpeas and(my absolute favourite harissa paste) in the fridge. I then use up any other leftover vegetables I have lying around. We’ve both reached an age where our ability to consume alcohol is very much reduced, the hangover’s after a night of excess are just a little worse than they used to be. So to that end, we also reckon this recipe would make a great hangover brunch. Washed down with a spicy bloody mary of course!
