What you'll need
Olive oil, garlic, ground paprika, chicken stock.
1. Begin to cook rice mixture ingredients
In a large saucepan, heat olive oil on a medium heat. Sauté onion, chorizo and garlic for 4-5 minutes until the onion is tender and chorizo is slightly crisp. Stir in paprika and cook for 1 minute.
2. Cook rice
Add rice to pan, and mix to coat grains. Stir in chicken stock and 2 cups of water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 12-15 minutes, until all the liquid is absorbed, and rice is tender.
3. Prepare salsa
Meanwhile, to make the avocado salsa, combine avocado, Lebanese cucumber, red online and lemon juice. Season to taste.
Stir peas and cherry tomatoes through rice. Serve topped with avocado salsa, fresh parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice.
