Welcome to the recipe vault!


Here you will find a series of tried and tested recipes that have tickled my tastebuds, and those of my friends and family, over the years...

Spicy chorizo jambalaya (serves 4, preparation time 10 minutes, cooking time 20 - 45 depending on r



  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

  • 1 red onion sliced

  • 2 red peppers sliced thinly

  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed

  • 100g chorizo diced

  • 1 teaspoon of paprika

  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne

  • 2 red finger chillies

  • 250g rice - I use brown rice which will take longer to cook, but you could use long-grain rice instead.

  • 400g carton of chopped tomatoes

  • 800ml vegetable stock

  • tablespoon of chopped coriander

  • juice of half a lime

Optional Extras:

Here’s what you do:

Step 1 - Heat the oil in the pan and add the onion, peppers and chorizo and cook until the vegetables until they are tender and then add the garlic and spices.

Step 2 - Add the rice to the saucepan and stir to ensure that all of the grains are coated. Add the tomatoes and stock to the pan and simmer.

Step 3 - Simmer the mixture until the rice is tender. This should only take 20 - 25 minutes for long-grain rice but may take over 45 minutes for brown rice.

Step 4 - Add the chopped coriander, seasoning and lime juice and serve.

This is quite a spicy little number so if you would like a more sedate dish, simply cut back on the spices and chillies.

Kitchen implements required:

  • Chopping board

  • Sharp knife

  • Large Frying pan

  • Wooden spatula
