Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 40 min
Step 1Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large saucepan. Add the chorizo and stir-fry on a medium heat (not too hot so it burns) for 4-5 minutes, to lightly crisp it and release its paprika juices. Transfer it to a plate.
Step 2Add the onion to the same pan with a splash more oil, reduce the heat to very low and fry, stirring now and then to stop it catching, for 10 minutes. Add a splash of water if it looks like it might catch at any stage.
Step 3After 10 minutes, add the potato, garlic and chorizo meat to the onion. Stir for 2 minutes. Add the stock, bay leaves, a little pepper and bring up to a low boil.
Step 4Cook for 5 minutes, then add the shredded spring greens and cook for about 8-10 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until the greens have wilted and the potatoes are tender.
Step 5Keep an eye on the liquid level and top up with a little more stock or water if needs be. Remove the bay leaves and check the seasoning to serve.
