This is a speedy vegan Spanish lentil stew or “lentejas con chorizo”. It’s one of those traditional recipes where every family has their own way of making it. As the name would suggest, it usually includes chorizo and other animal products but we’ve made a plant-based version that tastes just as good using our beef bouillon and chorizo seasoning. Believe us when we tell you that you will not be able to tell the difference.
We love legumes in all their shapes and sizes and lentils are no exception, this protein and fiber-packed pulse is a must in the vegan pantry. However if you’re not a fan, we encourage you to try this recipe because it will definitely convert you.
Make this speedy one-pot stew part of your weeknight rotation because it couldn’t be easier and quicker to make, plus minimal washing up! We’ve used cooked lentils to make life easier but feel free to soak and cook your own if you prefer, just make sure to choose and quick-cook lentil or soak over-night for best results.
