This chorizo and lentil Stew is so tasty. An all in one pot, quick healthy meal for all the family. It’s one of our favourites and we’re pretty sure it’ll be one of yours soon too.
This chorizo and lentil stew really is an amazingly tasty combination.
It’s just so filling and you’ll be amazed that this is only 274 calories per serving!
Chorizo has got to be one of the most delicious kinds of sausage you can get and it’s so versatile too!
I love that when you cook the chorizo, it releases its fat and flavours (not to mention that amazing aroma that fills your kitchen) allowing you to cook the rest of your ingredients in those juices
And that’s just what I’ve done here with my Chorizo and Lentil Stew.
I always use chorizo in moderation because it can be quite fatty and also because you don’t need much to make great flavoursome dishes.
The 120g you use here makes 8 portions of this chorizo and lentil stew and so the chorizo part equates to only 70 calories per portion.
Do you need to make 8 portions? Yes I recommend it because this dish is so tasty and you would regret not making enough!
You don’t need to eat all the portions at once, ha ha! No, they should be frozen, but I confess that I liked this so much I had it for Monday and Tuesday dinner too.
Actually it was also good that I made so much of this chorizo and lentil stew because it’s been a really busy week at work in catching up with stuff.
