  • 1 chorizo (or a few slices if you can't get a small sausage-shaped one)
  • 100 gr. serrano ham
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 small glass of red wine
  • 2 cloves (optional)
  • 1 red pepper (optional)

How to Make Lentil stew (lentejas)

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 6 steps you must follow to make Lentil stew (lentejas) in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Soak the lentils for half an hour. Even though small lentils in packets usually don't need soaking, Spanish women tend to soak anyway
  • Step 2
  • Cut the ham and chorizo into dice-shaped pieces. Peel and wash the carrots and potatoes. Slice the carrots and halve the potatoes (unless they are very small). Wash and slice a small red pepper (optional).
  • Step 3
  • Drain the lentils and put them in a saucepan. Add enough water to cover them and add the ham, chorizo, carrots, potatoes, bayleaf, pepper, parsley, a little salt, saffron and wine. Also add the cloves if you want the lentils to have a slightly spicey air to them. Put the pan over a low heat and cover.
  • Step 4
  • Slice the onion and garlic and fry, stirring all the time. After a minute or so, add the sliced red pepper. This is optional and adds a slightly sweet flavour to the lentejas. When soft, add to the other ingredients in the saucepan.
  • Step 5
  • Let the lentil stew simmer for at least 40 minutes. Boil off any excess liquid at the end.
  • Step 6
  • Vegetarian Spanish lentils: To make a vegetarian version of Spanish lentil soup, just substitute the chorizo and ham for more vegetables. We recommend adding a little celery (not the leaves), 3 artichokes (without the stalk and outer leaves and cut into halves), 100gr wild mushrooms (if you can get any, otherwise normal ones, washed and sliced), a sprig of rosemary, a piece of lemon peel and a pinch of nutmeg and a pinch of sweet paprika. Put all of these into the saucepan in step 3. You may also like to add a vegtable stock cube.
