Lentil and chorizo salad

I used of course, the fabulous sausages that I got from Eumundi Smokehouse which are so flavoursome you only need 2/3 a sausage for this whole dish. This dish also has the advantage of being really easy to make, and can be done in a frantic 5 minutes or a leisurely 10 minutes with most of the pain being in the fairly insignificant amount of chopping.

An original recipe by Not Quite Nigella

  • 2/3 of a 10cm long chorizo (or similar type of sausage) cut into discs, then cut into quarters
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 400g tin organic lentils drained
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Splash of balsamic glaze or balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

Step 1 - In a medium saucepan, fry chorizo in dry pan until lightly browned, add oil and then fry garlic and onion until onion is soft.

Step 2 - Add drained tin of lentils and season with salt and pepper and oregano.

I added chopped walnuts although I think you could easily leave these out.
