Pingback by Potato and Chorizo Salad | Dinner Diary -
Having had presentation issues with last night’s dinner, we thought that it would be good if we could rectify that tonight. However, when we went through what we had and what needed to be used up, we ended up with chorizo, cabbage, potatoes and half a tin of tomatoes and the result was tasty but not particularly presentable. This reminded us of a previous chorizo, cabbage and potato dish we we had rather enjoyed, so decided to do something along those lines except with the healthier tomatoes replacing the creme fraiche.
We peeled and chopped the chorizo before frying it. When it had released some oil, we added diced onion and let that soften before adding chopped garlic and paprika. This all smelled really good when it was frying. Then we added the tinned tomatoes and let them cook for about ten minutes before adding shredded cabbage and pre-boiled new potatoes. We seasoned with salt and pepper, then put the lid on and let it all cook together for another five to ten minutes until the cabbage was done, then stirred in a little fresh basil.
The result was tasty, but not really cohesive. Perhaps we should have let the potatoes cook in the tomato liquid rather than pre-cooking them and adding them at the end, and added some herbs earlier on in the process.
