    Valeria's Note:

    I love lentils! I like this recipe more than the other lentils and chorizo recipe I submitted, because the flavors are blended much better. Translated from "Atrévete a cocinar" by Karlos Arguiñano. NOTES: (1) Original measurements are 1 tumber-glass full (or two deciliters) for the lentils, and a tsp is literally a teaspoon, like what you use to stir your coffee. This author doesn't split hairs when it comes to measurement and doesn't recommend graduated containers or scales to cook. (2) As always, if you find the lentils are getting thick, add more water. If you don't have a pressure-cooker, the amount of water needed will increase from 6 dL to 1 L (or 3 tumblers to 5 tumblers), and the cooking time increases from 6-8 minutes to 40-45 minutes.

      We all enjoyed this recipe. 4 star! I did double it with great success. Next day we purried the left over lentils and used like refried beans with Nacho chips and cheese. Will make again, thanks for posting.
