I had this dish in Portugal a while back as a starter for dinner, but I think it also makes a great breakfast dish.


  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 150 g cooking chorizo, finely chopped
  • 1


Heat the olive oil in a heavy-based (preferably oven-proof) saucepan over a low heat, add the chorizo, onion and garlic and gently cook for 6-7 minutes without colouring. Add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and simmer gently for 30 minutes, stirring every so often.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark
