1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground turmeric
250g Co-op easy cook basmati rice
500ml hot chicken stock (made from 1/2 stock cube)

150g Co-op chorizo ring, sliced about as thick as a £1 coin
2 whole roasted peppers from a jar, chopped (optional)

In a large frying pan, gently soften the onions, garlic and chorizo in the olive oil

Stir in the turmeric and rice, and cook for 1 minute

Stir in the peppers, if using, replace the lid and cook for 5 more minutes

Take the lid off and give it all a good stir - the rice should be tender
