This hearty, flavorful dish can easily be served as a main meal or as a side amongst other Spanish-style small plates. We love this dish for its variety of textures and flavors. The chorizo is broiled until crisp, then stirred together with flavorful harissa, hearty chickpeas, and tangy tomatoes. These elements then slow cook for 4 hours before getting topped with creamy burrata and fresh parsley leaves. We’re serving the chickpeas and chorizo with warm pita to soak up every last bit. Substitute vegetarian chorizo for the traditional variety to make this dish vegetarian.

Instructions

Stir together olive oil, onion, and chorizo in a Suvie pan.

04.22.19-011

Broil for 10 minutes, or until onion is softened and chorizo begins to render. Stir, and broil for another 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can saute the olive oil, onion, and chorizo in a medium skillet over medium high heat until onion is soft and chorizo is crisp, about 10 minutes total.

04.22.19-015

Stir in the harissa, chickpeas, tomatoes, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover the pan with parchment and foil and insert into the top right zone of your Suvie.

04.22.19-017

Wrap pita in foil and place in the lower right zone of your Suvie. Enter the Slow Cook Settings and schedule or cook immediately.

Once the chickpeas have finished cooking, carefully cut burrata in half, being careful not to lose too much cream.

04.22.19-016

Ladle chickpeas into 2 shallow bowls, top each bowl with half the burrata, and garnish with parsley leaves.

04.22.19-021

Remove pita from your Suvie and serve on the side.

Wine Pairing

A good quality Spanish Tempranillo will compliment the spicy chorizo notes. Alternatively, try pairing it with a good glass of Grenache.
