DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the lentils in cold water for an hour prior to cooking.
  • Heat olive oil on low heat, add onion and garlic. Sautée until onion begins to look translucent and garlic browns a little.
  • Add water and lentils, bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Add potato.
  • Add chorizo, in one inch slices.
  • Cook until lentils get soft and expand and chorizo filling strains against natural casing, about 40-45 minutes.
  • Serve warm with crusty bread.
