Chorizo & Cavolo Nero Hash

This Chorizo & Cavolo Nero Hash has quickly become a favourite and regular recipe in my house! It is so delicious and perfect at anytime of day. 

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I have been ordering organic vegetable boxes for a couple of months now. The company I order them from let you be extremely flexible with what you have in your box. They provide you with a set box each week but you can swap any vegetables you don’t fancy for one you do. This is great, but after a few weeks it meant I was playing it a bit safe. 

So a few weeks ago I decided to make as few swaps as possible and try some new vegetables. Cavolo Nero was available that week and although I had heard of it; I hadn’t tried it before. The recipes I saw when I had a quick look were hearty stews and soups which all looked delicious. Instead, I decided to tweak my Mexican Eggs recipe to come up with this Chorizo & Cavolo Nero Hash.  

Since I first made this Chorizo & Cavolo Nero Hash  a month or so ago, we have had it every week since. We absolutely love it! It is a great mid-week meal because it is quick to make. The only step that takes a few minutes is chopping the potatoes. That is because I finely dice them which means they cook quicker. If you would prefer you can cut them into bigger pieces and then just cook them for a bit longer. 

Cavolo nero is also known as black kale and Italian kale to name a few. It is packed full of nutrients and iron as well as looking quite pretty in my opinion! I really recommend that you give it a try, but if you decide it’s not for you, you could swap it for normal kale or spinach in this recipe. 

You could easily have this Chorizo & Cavolo Nero Hash for brunch, lunch or dinner. It is very versatile and also easy to cook for a lot of people. It also is great for leftovers. I quite like to make more than we will want to eat and have it for lunch the next day (minus the egg!).
