Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.

Heat the oil in a large pan or casserole and add the turkey to brown slightly. Add the chorizo and tomato puree and stir well.

Add all the vegetables, bay leaves, kidney beans and sugar. Tip in the canned tomatoes, vinegar, a little salt and pepper and the stock. Stir well.

Cover and cook in the oven for 30-40 mins.

Once cooked, remove from the oven and remove the lid, bring to a gentle simmer and then thicken with a little of the cornflour and water if required.

Serve with mash, rice, pasta or couscous.
