Recipe Ingredients for Chorizo and Chickpea Soup

2 tbsps olive oil
2 oz whole wheat spaghetti
2 3/4 cups bulgur wheat
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
8 cups water
16 oz chorizo
1/4 cup wine
1/2 cup dried apricots
30 oz chickpeas
28 oz diced tomatoes
28 oz water

Recipe Directions for Chorizo and Chickpea Soup

  1. -Warm the olive oil in a thick-bottomed saucepan on a medium heat.

  2. -Fry the pasta bits in the oil for a minute, stirring, until they look like slightly scorched straws.

  3. -Then add the bulgur wheat and stir for another minute or two.

  4. -Stir in the cinnamon and the salt, and then pour the water into the pan. Add the bay leaves, and bring to a boil, then turn down to the lowest heat, add a lid, and leave for 15 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed.

  5. -Put another thick-bottomed saucepan on a medium heat, add the chorizo pieces, and fry until the orange oil runs out. Then add the sherry and let it bubble away. Add the apricots (if using), along with the chickpeas (or beans) and canned tomatoes, and I fill each empty tomato can with water and swish it out into the pan. Put on a high heat to bubble for about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  6. -Serve with the bulgur wheat and, if there's any on hand, some chopped cilantro
