SAVORY SUNDAYS- SPANISH LENTILS

Hey folks,

Welcome to Savory Sunday! Today's selection from vegweb is another variation on lentils.  I know I've posted about lentils before, but this recipe for a traditional Spanish twist and got rave reviews so I wanted to share!  This sounds like it would definitely spice up your Sunday..check it out!

SPANISH LENTILS

INGREDIENTS (use vegan versions):


1 medium onion, diced

2-3 cloves garlic, mashed

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 cups dried green lentils

1 medium tomato, diced

2 medium carrots, chopped

1 large potato, diced

1 bay leaf

1/2 teaspoon cumin powder

salt and pepper, to taste

4 cups vegetable broth

1 teaspoon sweet paprika

hot sauce, optional, to taste (I use Tabasco)

1-2 links vegan chorizo, optional (I use Soyrizo)


DIRECTIONS:

In deep pot, sauté onion and garlic in oil until it starts to color.

Add remaining ingredients, except hot sauce and chorizo, and bring to a boil.

Reduce to a simmer and cook until lentils are done--about 30 minutes.

If you like, you can add a little hot sauce. If you use vegan chorizo, take out and cut into rings before serving.
This can of course be made in the crockpot.
