Description

Spicy chorizo and peppery lentils make this stew unforgettable.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Chorizo Sausage
  • 1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Cannellini Beans, Drained
  • 1 can (15 Oz. Size) Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 cup Dried Lentils
  • 2 cups Chicken Stock
  • 6 cups Fresh Chopped Spinach
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Crumbled Goat Cheese, To Serve

Preparation

In a big stockpot, brown the chorizo in a little bit of vegetable oil, stirring constantly, until almost done, about 5-7 minutes. Add in the cannelini beans, tomatoes, lentils, and chicken stock and stir until combined. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes until the lentils are soft and tender. Remove from heat and stir in the spinach; cover for about 5 minutes to let it wilt. Season with salt and pepper to taste (I ended up using maybe 1/2 teaspoon of salt and no pepper). Serve hot with goat cheese!

Note: If you would like to use canned cooked lentils, make sure they are rinsed and drained, then just bring the soup to boil and make sure the chorizo is cooked all the way through. No need to go the full 30 minutes if they’re already cooked!

This looks delicious – must try. Can you do this in a slow cooker?

We have this for dinner all of the time. It is great for company as well. I’ve never served it and not gotten rave reviews from everyone eating it.

Very tasty! My hubby forgot to buy Chorizo and got Smoked Sausage instead…and it was still lovely. I just put a bit of Cayenne Powder to turn up the heat a wee bit. I can’t wait to try this again with Chorizo or Andouille. :-)

This was a very easy, tasty recipe! I thought I had chorizo, but I actually had linguica. I sliced it half length-wise and then sliced it before browning it. I’m contemplating trying this with frozen spinach that has been thawed and well drained before adding to the soup pot. I’ll definitely make this again.
