Chorizo and cauliflower hash

It was time to raid the larder. I had food in my fridge that needed eating and that included one egg. How I was left with one egg is a mystery to me and it isn’t quite enough for anything. Well, the egg came out, as did some cooking chorizo and about a quarter of a cauliflower.

I have been in to soups lately but a bit of a cold spell seems to bring out a craving for more hearty food and I decided to make  hash, perhaps the ultimate leftover/clearing out the fridge food!


Chorizo and cauliflower hash 

preparation time 5 minutes 

cooking time 15-20 minutes

serves 2


  •  2 cooking chorizo sausages, sliced
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • about 1/4 cauliflower, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and crushed
  • a bunch of chopped parsley
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • oil for cooking
  • feta cheese for garnish

Place the chorizo in a cold frying pan in a little oil and heat it up. When it is sizzling add the potatoes and onion. Let cook until the potatoes are cooked about half way through. Add most of the cauliflower and cook until the potatoes are almost done. Add the remaining cauliflower, cayenne pepper and the crushed garlic. Let cook through, add the chopped parsley. Taste with salt and pepper.

Take the hash off the heat and stir in the egg, make sure you move the hash around in the pan to let the egg coat the hash.

Garnish with parsley and crumbled feta cheese and serve.

I read somewhere that cauliflower is going out of fashion as a vegetable. I can’t believe it, it goes with pretty much anything, is good on it’s own and lends itself to many flavors. It is too good to be overlooked!
