Easy fast food, chorizo with wild garlic and beans

The other day we came home a bit late, we were hungry and I still had some work to do and there was no time for cooking. A quick look in my fridge told me that I had various kinds of tofu, thanks to the lovely M and a pack of organic chorizo picante from the market. A pack of fresh wild garlic and a tin of black eyed beans seemed to be the answer to my need for a quick dinner.

The wild garlic has a distinct garlicky smell but a mild and delicious flavor.

It was a super fast but satisfying dinner. All the spices came from the chorizo, there was no need for extra salt or pepper, The tofu took the flavor of the chorizo oil, if it hadn’t I would have suggested some salt as tofu can be bland without salt and spices.

  1. […] first dish from Petra at Food East Love certainly qualifies on both counts, chorizo with wild garlic and beans uses 4 ingredients and should take any cook less than 15 […]
