Hi all,
Are you ready for another winter recipe? I am as is getting a little more chilli this month and have decided to prepare a very typical Spanish hot soup or stew with lentils!! I love them and they have lots of iron and are so good for you. Get in there!

  • 2 carrots peeled and diced
  • 1 tbls of Spanish smoked paprika
  • olive oil for sauteing

Let’s Start!

Wash lentils. Place the lentils, chorizo, whole garlic, carrots and potatoes in a large pot. Cover with water at least 3 fingers in total. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Let it cooke stirring occasionally. Fry onions in a pan with olive oil until soft, then add Spanish smoked paprika and cook for a minute. Add onions to the pot. Salt to taste. Cook for 45 minutes.
