Lentils are wonderfully warming winter comfort food – they’re nourishing, thoroughly satisfying to eat and they don’t require soaking or long cooking.
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 large onion finely diced
- 1 carrot peeled and finely diced
- ¼ cup tomato paste
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 2 large cloves garlic crushed
- 120 g kransky sausage (or chorizo) diced
- 2.5 l good chicken stock
- 2 x 400 g canned crushed tomatoes
- 2 cups dried brown lentils washed
- 2 bay leaves
- salt and pepper
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- ½ bunch fresh coriander chopped
- In a large pot heat oil and gently fry onion and carrot until soft. Add tomato paste, garlic, paprika and diced sausage and stir over heat for another minute. Add chicken stock, tomatoes, bay leaves and lentils.
- Simmer gently until the lentils are very soft; this will take 1-11⁄2 hours depending on their age and dryness. Season to taste and mix in lemon juice and coriander.
Can be made in bulk and freezes well. Accompany if you like with creme fraîche or sour cream.
