Winter Warmer, Tomato, Chorizo and lentil soup

The cold weather has descended upon us again, so here is a recipe for a delicious and nourishing soup.

Serves 4 to 6, depending on how many helpings you have.

You will need:
A generous drizzle of olive oil

Two red onions, chopped
Two cloves of garlic, crushed
Half a chorizo sliced and quartered
Two tins of chopped tomatoes
1 litre of chicken stock (homemade or stock cubes)
A couple of handfuls of puy lentils
salt and pepper.

drizzle the olive oil into a pan on a medium heat, when the oil is hot add the chopped onions and garlic and sweat for ten minutes.

Add the chorizo and cook for five minutes, letting all the flavours and juices ooze into the mixture.

Add the tomatoes, and cook for a further two minutes

Add the stock, lentils and salt and pepper, bring to the boil and then put the lid on the saucepan and simmer for twenty minutes.

You should end up with something like this:

Serve with warm crusty bread or if your feeling really hungry, garlic bread, It's really filling, so should keep you going for hours......enjoy.
