Such a great recipe, smokey slightly spicy chorizo flavours and packed full of red split lentils so it's super filling too!
This recipe makes about 2 litres so you'll have loads left over to freeze for another day.
So before we get going you're going to need a big saucepan or stockpot for this.

1/2 tin chopped tomatoes
1/4 tube (35g) tomato pureé
2 litres chicken stock (cubes are fine)

2 fat cloves garlic diced
1 heaped tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chipotle chilli flakes
handful chopped flat leaf parsley
salt and pepper

sauté onions and garlic, don't colour!
add 125g chopped chorizo reserving 25g to dress.
add paprika and chilli flakes
add chopped tomatoes and puree
cook off tomatoes for a couple of minutes.
add lentils, stir well then add stock
simmer for 20 mins until lentils are broken down.
use a stick blender to blitz to a smooth consistency.
