Here's a flavorful one pot stew that would be equally appropriate for a family dinner or for serving to a few friends when entertaining. Squid, or calamari, is relatively inexpensive and available frozen, already trimmed and cleaned, for the ultimate in convenience. Here the strips are browned in a bit of olive oil and then simmered with potatoes and carrots and seasonings until everything is tender, with white beans and chorizo adding extra heft and flavor.


  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • olive oil (as needed)
  • 1 kilogram squid strips (frozen, cut into squares)
  • water
  • salt
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 potatoes (cubed)
  • 3 carrots (sliced)
  • tomato paste
  • 1 can white beans
  • chorizo (sliced, to taste)


  1. Saute the garlic and onion in some olive oil.
  2. Once the onion is translucent, add the squid. Let it brown slightly.
  3. Add enough water to cook the squid, some salt, and the bay leaf. Add the potatoes and carrots. Add a bit of tomato paste and season to taste.
  4. Cook for about 30 minutes. Halfway through cooking, add the can of white beans and sliced chorizo.
