This is the most delicious Spanish meal and you don’t have to feel bad about eating sausage during the week as the beautiful rainbow carrots and vine tomatoes add a super healthy kick. If you don’t eat pork then you can substitute the chorizo with beef sausage or grilled chicken breasts. If you haven’t eaten rainbow carrots then you’re in for a treat, they are so deliciously sweet, you can find them at any Woolworths 🙂
