Spanish stew

I was feeling quite ill yesterday with a bad cold, unfortunately missing Tara's grandmother's memorial service, and i made this comforting stew to cheer myself up and bolster my system.  It was just what i needed and certainly replenished any salts and fats i was missing!  And that was with no added salt or fat.  I think in future, i would add more vegetables and less chorizo so it's a bit less salty and fatty -  i have suggested below, the addition of a parsnip which is not in nigella's original.

- Gently fry a chopped onion in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, in a pan that will go in the oven.
- After 5 mins, add 3 cloves chopped garlic and cook for a further 2-3 mins.
- Add 400g chorizo, cut into thick slices, a bay leaf and 100ml sherry.
- Add 1 kg potatoes, cut into large chunks.
- Cover with boiled water and simmer for 10 mins.
- Taste for seasoning (i didn't add any!) and put in the oven for 30-40 mins at 200C.
- Sprinkle with chopped coriander serve with fresh bread.
