Lentils

Hello!

On our spanish site a reader proposed us to cook lentils, which a very common recipe in Spain in the table spoon dish sort of category. I already had this idea in mind but never get materialized until now. This recipe is similar to my mother’s lentils, and I was satisfied with the result so I share it with you:

Ingredients (for 2 people)

  • 150 gr lentils
  • 100 gr ham
  • 100 gr chorizo
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 medium size potatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 onion
  • Some bay leaves

Hi to prepare this recipe start adding 150gr of lentils in a recipient, then cover with water and let stay the lentils in water for at least ½ hour. No it’s time to cut some ingredients. Cut the chorizo onto small slices, as it has lot of fat use less chorizo and more ham, and even don’t use chorizo at all if you prefer. Cut 1 onion is 4 pieces. Peel 2 potatoes and cut in regular pieces.

On a big pot add 2 carrots  (well cleaned so they won’t left dust), the onion, the potatoes, one tomato cut in half, 100 gr of ham cut in really small pieces, chorizo, some bay leaves, 3 peeled garlic cloves, the lentils and some salt.

Add plenty of water, cover wit a lid and cook between 50 minutes and 1 hour. Check if you need more salt, near the end of cook time taste lentils to check if you need to cook them for more time.

This recipe is a good choice for taking tupperware to work, but it will be better if you remove the potatoes.
