This is one of my most favourite recipes ever!!! My good friend Nic who I used to live with, used to make this all the time for us… and every time we’d end up stuffing ourselves with double helpings because it’s so good!!! Anyways here is her recipe. It really is so quick and so easy….and more importantly sooooo tasty!
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 red pepper, chopped
1 red chilli, chopped
250g chorizo, chopped (be generous)
1 large potato, peeled and chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
250g brown lentils, soaked overnight
2 stock cubes
1-1.5 litres of boiling water
Fry the onions, garlic, pepper, chilli and chorizo in a little olive oil until the onions are brown and soft. Add the lentils, carrot and potato, and cook for a further few minutes. Then add enough boiling water to cover everything…and a bit more…and throw in the 2 stock cubes. Stir well and simmer for 40 minutes. I would stir it a few times again while its simmering. Season to taste and serve.
