#19 of 21 things to do in Madrid
Cocido Madrileño is chickpea-based stew with a variety of vegetables and meat. For the first time, it was prepared in Madrid and originally used to be the food of peasants but very soon all other social classes fell in love with it. Nowadays you can find Cocido almost in any restaurant.

It is prepared from vegetables, Turkish chickpea and several types of meat - beef, pork, chicken slices, sausages of various kinds.

Cocido is served in three stages. Firstly, you will be served a broth with rice or pasta. Then you will eat vegetables and chickpeas. And finally, you will have a large dish with different species of meat. Some restaurants serve the last stage, meat, together with vegetables.

Prices: around €20 for a dish.
