  1. Heat the oil in a sauté pan over a medium-high heat, add the chorizo and fry for a couple of minutes until it starts to crisp and release its juices. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a bowl. Add the onion to the pan, lower the heat and soften for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and stock. Season well, bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the chorizo, the grains and peppers to the pan, cover with a lid and simmer for a couple more minutes, or until warmed through.
  3. Spoon into bowls, scatter generously with the chopped herbs and serve with warm garlic bread.
