During winter months, there’s nothing more comforting than enjoying hearty stews and soups. One of the more popular recipes in my family and one that always reminds me of winter, is lentil soup. This lentil dish goes great with a side of white rice or on its own. You can also make it a vegetarian dish by leaving out the chorizo or replacing it with soy chorizo.

  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 chorizo, finely sliced
