Top tip: Also delicious with garlic bread served straight from the oven
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
125g chorizo cantimpalo
1 onion, peeled and roughly sliced
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
200g new potatoes (tatws) - halved
1 tbs tomato puree
400g chopped tomatoes
1 tsp paprika
1 x 400g tin of green lentils
Sea salt (to taste)
Sourdough bread** lightly toasted (optional)
Heat oil in a sauté pan over a gentle heat. Skin and slice the Chorizo and cook over a gentle heat until the oil begins to run out of it. Remove the chorizo from the pan, set to one side.
Add the onions and garlic to the pan stir to coat with oil then put the lid on and sauté over a gentle heat, stirring occasionally until the onions and garlic have softened and turned translucent. Add the potatoes, chopped tomatoes and paprika. Stir and replace the lid. Simmer over a gentle heat for about 20 minutes until the tatws is cooked.
Add a little water if the stew is too thick, then add the chorizo (and any juices), green lentils and season with freshly ground black pepper and sea salt. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. Serve in warmed bowls with thick-sliced, lightly toasted sourdough bread**
