How to make it

  • 1. Heat the oil in a medium/large saucepan and throw in the chorizo. I really like a little spice with mine so I use a Chorizo Piccante but you can use normal chorizo if you wish.
  • 2. Heat the chorizo through, without fiercely frying it, until it starts to release its paprika laden oils.
  • 3. Add in the onion, garlic, celery and red pepper.
  • 4. Fry on a medium heat for about 5 or 10 minutes until the vegetables have softened but make sure they don't take on too much colour. You don't want the onions to brown.
  • 5. Add in the stock and bring to the boil.
  • 6. After washing the lentils add them to the pan and reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cook for about 30 minutes until the lentils are really soft.
  • 7. Turn off the heat and cool for 5 minutes or so before liquidising with a stick-blender or food processor.
  • 8. Check for seasoning, though depending on the chorizo you may not need to add any more salt or pepper.
  • 9. If you have them, add in some finely chopped celery leaves and stir through.
  • This soup will keep for up to three days in the fridge. When serving, heat through gently but do not boil.
