The recipes we chose this week are:

Recipe 1Chickpea & Chorizo Stew (from Alyce Alexandra)
Chickpea & Chorizo Stew

This is actually from Alyce’s beautiful book Quick Fix: Every Occasion. We LOVED it. It was so quick and easy to make. We found we didn’t need to add any extra oil to this recipe as our chorizo was already quite oily. Next time we will chop the chorizo into quarters to make it go a bit further. That being said, you could also leave the chorizo out for a delicious vegetarian stew. We didn’t have time to make the harissa paste, so we used dried harissa seasoning and it was excellent, and didn’t need any salt at the end as it was seasoned beautifully. By the way, the AA team shared this by means of their mailing list, which is always full of great free info! Sign up here.

Recipe 2Chickpea Crackers (from Me and My Thermie)

Chickpea Crackers

This is a cracker recipe for crackers… YUMMM! We love how crispy these are, and the awesome flavours of a bit of peanut butter and chilli makes this a winning recipe. This is a really stiff dough – we didn’t think it was going to work! Alas, it worked a treat. We used a rolling pizza cutter to create the shapes for the crackers. We used cayenne in lieu of our chilli powder. Next time we will experiment with some Parmesan and oregano.

Recipe 3Chickpea Patties (from The Road to Loving My Thermo Mixer)

Chickpea Patties

We love these so much that we never end up with leftovers… so next time we are going to make a double batch. We used 70g of potato starch in lieu of the bread crumbs, and we also trialled using 50g of almond meal in lieu of the bread crumbs, which also worked well.

Here are some cool tips from this podcast… 

  • We find that cooking chorizo in the Thermomix doesn’t need extra oil due to the oil within the sausage.
  • We have found that besan flour is actually cheaper than purchasing dried chickpeas, and is much easier on the eardrum!
