Guy's kale, chorizo and potato hash

Main Serves 4 45 min
A quick brunch, lunch or dinner - a real treat on a cold day. This gives a wonderful range of textures and flavours from hardly any ingredients. It's especially good topped with a fried or poached egg. You can substitute cabbage or Brussels sprouts for kale here, and cooked chicken or corned beef for the chorizo. Sweetcorn is another good addition.


  • 300g kale, stripped from its stems (cavolo nero or curly are best for this recipe, but you can use red Russian too)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 300g chorizo sausage, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 500g cooked potatoes, cut into 2cm dice
  • salt and pepper

Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 35 min
  • Step 1

    Strip the kale leaves from their central ribs and blanch them in a large pan of boiling salted water for 1 minute. Drain well, refresh in cold water and drain again. Squeeze out excess water and chop roughly.
  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the chorizo and cook over a medium heat for 10 minutes, until just starting to brown. Remove the chorizo with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Step 3

    Add the onion and garlic to the chorizo fat in the pan and cook gently for 5 minutes. Add the diced potatoes, turn up the heat to get some colour in them and cook for 5 minutes, turning the potatoes until browned all over.
  • Step 4

    Return the chorizo to the pan with the kale and cook slowly for another 10 minutes, until well mixed and thoroughly heated through. Season and serve.
