Chickpea, Chorizo and Spinach Soup

This hearty, simple meal in a bowl was inspired by Portuguese sopa de grão de bico. The name translates, quite plainly, as “chickpea soup,” but the dish might also include various types of vegetables, different meats and even pasta. We lean on Spanish dry-cured chorizo to provide big flavor here—it infuses the broth with its smoky, garlicky, paprika-forward intensity—so don’t use fresh Mexican chorizo in its place.

I make 2 batches of this every week; one for the day and one for freezing portions for my family to reheat during off meal times. I made two adjustments. We use Italian mild chicken sausage instead of chorizo which is spicy for my youngest. I also thicken the broth with a flour slurry towards the end which makes it feel a bit heartier. Great healthy meal in one pot.

Quick and easy but seems a little flat. Finishing with a splash of vinegar and drizzle of spanish olive oil helps.

Made this with soyrizo for a quick, delicious meal on a cold night.
