Autumn chicken chorizo and mixed bean stew
Autumn is here… dum dum dum dam
Shorter days, layered clothes, pumpkin colours and food consumed with a spoon. What is not to like about this season? When the weather changes so does my food-mood. I enjoy simmer dishes, and anything that has a slight kick to it. Any food or drink that warms me up is the right kind of food for autumn (in my humble opinion). Warning: This dish is not a “pretty” dish, nor is in Instagram-friendly, but your tastebuds will thank you for days so do not judge the book by its cover 😉
Also, there has been very silent on the recipe side: Sorry! In 11 days I will be walking down the aisle in a white dress, and my mind has been on one million other things than food. I sincerely hope you will enjoy this kick-off recipe, which was largely inspired by FoodFanatic. Her stuff is amazing. I like to twist and turn dishes, which is what I have done with this one. I promise you, it will warm you up all the way through. Perfect for a cold day, followed by a visit to your couch wrapped in a blanket!
