Spanish Soup – Chorizo and Green lentil
This is a delicious meal that a somebody cooked for me recently, and as it happens they sent the recipe along with a list of ingredients they wanted me to contribute, meaning I now know how to make it myself. For various reasons, my stomach was quite weak that night, so I could not eat as much as I wished, but here it goes, take number two and I am starving after spending half the day ill in bed and having the rest divided between the lab and my job! That night a while ago was very enjoyable and also my introduction to Alan Partridge, shock! horror! Some of my friends do not believe that a whole 21 years of life could be spent without seeing Alan Partridge, but anyway, it was a nice Saturday evening a few days before a doomsday and the recipe is completely warming and delicious, especially when feeling a little ill as I do now 🙂
