'Chorizo' Ratatouille Recipe
- 8 plant-based chorizo style sausages I use the Wicked Kitchen version that can be found in Tesco, however you could use any chorizo style sausage. If you can't find this use normal plant-based sausages and add 3 tbsp of paprika to get a similar taste.
- 2 stock cube made to packet instructions
- 4 sweet potatoes
- 5 carrots
- 2 whole lemons
- 150 g tomatoes I use plum or cherry but you can use any type of tomato
- 4 corn on the cobs
- 1 aubergine (eggplant)
- Pre-heat the oven to 200C / 180C Fan / Gas 6.
- Chop the aubergine, sweet potato and carrots in to 2cm/3cm chunks, and half the lemons and tomatoes.
- Add them to an oven dish along with all of the stock (made according to the packet instructions), and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
- At the 20 minute mark remove from the oven and add the tomatoes, lemon and corn on the cob.
- Give this a good stir and spread the sausages out evenly on top before putting it back in the oven for the final 20 minutes.
- This is it, its that easy! It makes a great meal on its own or serve it with some crusty bread, rice or couscous.
HOW YOU CAN CUSTOMISE THIS RECIPE
The beauty of a vegetable-based recipe is that it works with almost any vegetable so is a great recipe to use up any veg that is about to go off.
I throw everything plus the kitchen sink at this recipe because I’m normally too lazy to make anything else with it so we just have this for dinner (still a delicious and filling way to serve it by the way).

HOW TO COOK CHORIZO
My favourite ways to cook chorizo are;
- Bake the sausages in the oven for 20 minutes.
- Thickly slice them and dry fry them in a pan.
TIPS TO MAKE THE RECIPE
I chop my veg into chunks of 2cm/3cm because I like them a bit chunkier. If you want something that cooks a bit quicker so you can bung it all in the pan in one go and cook for 20 minutes then just cut the veg smaller.
Short for time? Why not buy a casserole veg mix or packs of ready prepared veg from the supermarket. They’re normally cut to the right size and means you can get this in the oven with no prep.
