I love lentils. Today’s recipe, my lentil soup with Spanish chorizo, is one of my favorite lentil soups ever: so flavorful and a meal by itself. It keeps you warm and full of energy for a good while.
 
 
I began to make this lentil soup with Spanish chorizo while in college. At that time, all I cared was Spain and Spanish stuff. I fell in love with gazpacho, jamón de Jabugo, tortilla española and all the tapas in between.

Following the Latin tradition of eating lentil soup on January 1st (so you won’t lack food and prosperity during the rest of the year), we had my Winter French Lentil Soup as our first 2011 meal. However, today I was craving for my so comforting lentil soup with chorizo and here I go.

Since it was so chilly outside and The Three Magi will arrive pretty soon, I decided to celebrate the Epiphany with a recipe that brings memories of my Mother Land, and that I can cook with my eyes closed.

No need to say that in this lentil soup with Spanish chorizo, the flavor comes from the sofrito (chopped onion, garlic and red bell pepper, sautéed in olive oil) and the chorizo (Spanish, Portuguese, either smoked or not). It pairs perfect with red wine and for dessert, I would suggest flan, natilla or crema catalana.
