SPAN­ISH KUMARA POCKET WITH CHORIZO AND CHIPO­TLE SOUR CREAM

Ready in: 35 min­utes Prep: 15 min­utes Cook: 30 min­utes Serves: 1

Span­ish kumara pocket 150g baby or­ange kumara Chorizo stuff­ing 100g mild chorizo sausage 2 cloves gar­lic 50g roasted red cap­sicum (store-bought) red onion tomato 1 hand­ful baby spinach leaves 11⁄ ta­ble­spoons pars­ley leaves zest and juice of lemon Chipo­tle sour cream 1-2 ta­ble­spoons sour cream

-1 ta­ble­spoon chipo­tle sauce (store-bought)

Pre­heat oven to 220 de­grees Cel­sius. Line an oven tray with bak­ing pa­per.

Prick kumara a few times with a fork and place on pre­pared tray with a driz­zle of oil. Sea­son with salt and bake for 25 min­utes, or un­til the skin is crispy and the flesh is soft enough to pierce with a sharp knife. Turn once dur­ing cook­ing.

Slice chorizo sausage in half length­ways. When kumara has 15 min­utes’ cook time re­main­ing, add chorizo and gar­lic cloves to the same tray and cook for 12-14 min­utes, or un­til chorizo is crispy.

While chorizo is cook­ing, pre­pare veges. Thinly slice roasted cap­sicum; finely dice red onion; dice tomato 1cm; roughly chop spinach; chop pars­ley leaves. Add all to a medium bowl and set aside. Mix all chipo­tle sour cream in­gre­di­ents to­gether in a small bowl and sea­son to taste. Set aside.

When kumara has fin­ished cook­ing and chorizo is crisp, re­move tray from oven. Thinly slice chorizo and gar­lic (re­move skin) and add to bowl with veg­eta­bles, along with lemon zest and juice. Driz­zle with olive oil and sea­son to taste with salt and pep­per.

Cut kumara in half length­ways, but not all the way through. Use a spoon to gen­tly open kumara and fill with chorizo stuff­ing in­gre­di­ents. Re­turn to oven for about 2 min­utes, un­til fill­ing is warmed through. To serve, place Span­ish kumara pocket with chorizo onto a plate and dol­lop with chipo­tle sour cream. Serve any re­main­ing chorizo stuff­ing on the side.
