  • Full of Spanish flavours – including our own chorizo made from free-range pork – this is a lower-calorie dish that punches well above its weight in taste.
  • Like all of our Pots for One, this is a full meal in itself that clocks in under 400 calories and is less than a third of your daily Reference Intake (RI) in sugar, salt, fat and saturated fat.
  • Cooks from frozen in the microwave in minutes.
  • Some crusty bread and butter on the side would be a lovely addition.

Other meals under 400 calories:

  • All of our Pots for One have fewer than 400 calories, but we have other meals in this category. However, unlike the Pots, you will want to add your own veg and possibly some carbs like rice or potatoes, which may sneak them over the 400 mark (which shouldn’t be a problem for your main meal of the day). Explore the range here.

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

For the sauce, our chefs fry chorizo to give it some colour and release its flavours. They use the oil released by the chorizo to lightly fry the garlic and onion, then add smoked paprika, fennel seeds, a touch of chilli flakes, red wine vinegar, red wine and sherry (hic!), and allow all this to reduce. Chopped tomatoes, tomato puree and vegetable glace are added, before simmering for 10 minutes to allow the flavours to really develop. They then stir through some basil and parsley to add freshness and colour. Fresh baby spinach leaves, chickpeas and green-speckled lentils are added, giving it protein and body.  Finally, the dish is finished with king prawns, the cooked chorizo and piquillo peppers.
