    Learn how to make a traditional Spanish Chorizo and Lentil stew with this classic recipe. The earthy flavour of slowly cooked lentils combined with some spicy chorizo sausage for the perfect winter warmer.


    1.  In a large pan, heat 4 tablespoons of the oil and gently fry the chopped garlic, onion, carrot, leek, pepper and bay leaf for about 5 minutes or until soft. Add the smoked paprika and chopped tomato and fry for a further 3 minutes.
    2.  Add the lentils and cover with the hot water. Season the lentils with salt and and simmer with the lid on for about 40 minutes, preventing the liquid from boiling as the lentils will split. Shake the pan now and again to thicken the liquid.
    3.  Whilst the lentils are cooking, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan and fry the chorizo sausages for 2 minutes on each side. Drain on to some kitchen paper and add to the lentil stew for the last 10 minutes of cooking.
    4.  Once the lentils are tender, cover with a lid and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving in warm soup bowls with some crusty bread and a glass of red txakoli.
