Ingredients (serves 4)

1tbsp olive oil

1 onion, sliced

250g pack chorizo cooking sausages, sliced

1/2 red pepper, finely diced

1/2 green pepper, finely diced

1tbsp smoked paprika

200g dried basmati rice

200g chopped tomatoes

450ml chicken stock

1 pinch of saffron threads soaked in 1 tbsp boiling water

A Pink Lady® apple, cored and diced

1 lemon wedges and coriander leaves to serve


Heat the oil in a saucepan and cook the onion and sausage for 3-4 minutes until beginning to colour and soften. Add peppers, garlic and smoked paprika and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Add the rice, chopped tomatoes, stock, saffron and soaking liquid and bring to the boil. Cover and cook on a very low heat for 10 minutes, without lifting the lid.

Stir in the apple cubes and cover. Take off the heat and leave to stand for 5 minutes. Check seasoning, scatter with coriander and serve with the lemon wedges.
