Chorizo & chickpea stew | BBC Good Food - so many variations of this scrumptious dish. It works well with other pulses too, but chickpeas (garbanzo beans) add a lovely clean nutty taste that balances out the smokiness of the chorizo. I know autumn is here when I start cooking this dish - it makes me think of frosty mornings, bonfires and cosy nights indoors!
Squash and ricotta pasta bake Added in two red peppers and roasted them with the butternut squash; added in large onion & chilli flakes with the garlic. Used 3 very generous tbsp ricotta. Added in 80g chopped kale (which worked well) The sage leaves on top were delicious - use lots. Next time: use a very large butternut squash, add in even more veg, e.g. courgettes &/or mushrooms. I served it with steamed broccoli, but salad or green beans might be better.
No ploughman's is complete without this. Let it mellow in a dark cool cupboard for 1 month before eating. This is the best piccalilli I've ever had. Pile it onto your plate with a ploughman's or spice up ham and colcannon with a generous dollop.
