OK, so who’s Ada, and what’s so fab about her?

Fabada is a Spanish one pot dish. My version is an improvisation using what I had available but, as with many such stew style recipes, I’m sure the real thing is often made that way too.

The Spanish almost certainly use chorizo but I’ve made do with ordinary bangers and a handful of chilli peppers to add bite, along with baked beans because I didn’t have any butter beans in stock. The rest of the ingredients are a black pudding ring, a couple of turkey breasts, a handful of cherry tomatoes and a tin of chopped tomatoes, a handful of chopped mushrooms, some left over broccoli, a couple of twists from the garlic mill, a sprinkling of oregano and black pepper plus half a bottle of red wine. The meat and black pudding are chopped small and everything is stirred together.
