Spanish Lentils

Try cooking lentils in a Spanish style rather than the usual Asian style by frying them in chorizo, garlic and shallots before simmering them in red wine. The dish is then freshened up with some herbs, making it perfect for serving with something meaty, such as pork sausage or chicken thighs.

Ingredients:
250g dried Puy lentils
1 410g tin chickpeas
150ml red wine
100g chorizo
6 shallots
2 garlic cloves
1 red pepper
Handful chopped fresh coriander
Handful chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 litre vegetable stock
1 tsp. smoked paprika
Salt and pepper

Directions:
1. Finely chop the shallots, chop and deseed the pepper and mince the garlic cloves. Slice the chorizo.

2. Bring the stock to a simmer and then add the lentils and simmer for twenty minutes.

3. Meanwhile, heat half of the oil to a frying pan and fry the chorizo for five minutes. Once it has released some of its oil, add the shallots, garlic and pepper and fry for another 6-8 minutes until the pepper and shallots begin to soften.

4. Add the paprika and fry for one minute, then add the cooked drained lentils. Drain the chickpeas and add these, and then stir in the rest of the olive oil.

5. Add the wine and simmer until it has almost all evaporated. Once it is at this stage, season the dish well with salt and pepper and then stir in the freshly chopped herbs.
