Spicy Lentils with tomato and chorizoO Meu Tempero
Lentils and chorizo are a match made in culinary heaven, as aptly demonstrated by this recipe. The spicy sauage is first sauteed with onion and tomato paste and spiced with cracked cardamom pods and a bit of hot pepper jelly, and then the lentils are added along with some water and allowed to simmer until tender. Avoid overcooking lentils or they will turn mushy. Serve the stew with rice, if desired.
