- • 4 Tbs tomato paste ± to taste. shopping list
- • 6 – 8 fresh mushrooms, depending on size, sliced. I use Portobello cause that’s what we usually get but whatever. shopping list
- • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil, depending on what pepper option you use. shopping list
- • 1 cup Spanish Chorizo, to taste. This is not actually a meat dish but the meat or sausage is for flavour. Some sausage just has more flavor than the next batch so adjust. shopping list
- • 1 cup chopped onion ± to taste. shopping list
- • 4 cloves garlic, chopped, ± depending on how fresh your garlic is. shopping list
- • 1/2 cup sliced pitted kalamata olives. I used to use ripe olives and they work but the Kalamata give a nicer flavour. shopping list
- • 2 Tbs red wine, to taste. Don’t overdo this. shopping list
