Although it uses straightforward, country ingredients, there really is nothing peasant-like in the royal combination of smoke-rich chorizo and graceful rice grains. Canned chickpeas are ever-ready, generous little flavour-mules, adding substance and texture to this simple, hearty supper.


  • 2 tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion, chopped


Score a cross on the top of each tomato, then plunge into a bowl of boiling water, then a bowl of cold water. Leave until cool enough to handle, then peel off the skin and chop the flesh.

Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas 5 and select a lidded, flameproof casserole dish.
