Spanish Lentil Soup With Chorizo
55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
10 ingredients
6 servings
When I first arrived in Córdoba, Spain to study for a year, the cook in my dorm served this, my first lunch in my new home. I had never had lentils before, but this dish quickly became my absolute favorite. My additions to the recipe are the garlic, onion and potato; I tried carrot once but I overcooked it and was traumatized by the mushiness, so I haven't done that since. The best part about this recipe is it costs less than $10 to make and feeds many.
