Thursday, January 26, 2023 @ 5:28 AM

Rita is rather good at cooking. Why else did Paul Whitelock marry her? Well, there were other reasons, but we don’t need to go into that here! Here’s a nice little recipe of hers that’s easy to prepare and which tastes delicious.


Ingredients – (Serves 4)

  • 1 chorizo ring
  • 1 medium courgette
  • 1 can of sweet corn
  • 1 jar of red kidney beans
  • Mixed herbs
  • Soya sauce
  • Chilli – powder, fresh or paste
  • 2-3 cans of chopped tomatoes (1-2 with onions)



  • Cut chorizo into small pieces and fry lightly.
  • Slice the courgette, cut into quarters and add to chorizo.
  • Then add the sweet corn and beans and continue frying.
  • Add the herbs and spices.
  • Finally add the tomatoes.
