Thermomix Petit pois with chourizo (Portuguese recipe)

About this recipe:

This is one of my favorite Portuguese recipes for the Thermomix and the only reason I’m adding it here is because I cook it often and don’t want to waste time looking for and reading the book when I can use my mobile to follow the recipe. There are many variations to this recipe, this is mine.
