    My recipe is a bit different ladies but I guarantee it is very healthy, extra yummy and worth a try! :headspin:


    TOMATOE AND LENTIL SOUP WITH CHORIZO (PORTUGUESE SAUSAGE)

    Ingredients

    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
    1/2 cup finely chopped carrot
    1/2 cup finely chopped celery
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    5 1/2 cups water
    1-2 cups of chopped chorizo or other sausage
    1 1/2 cups red lentils
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, divided
    2 bay leaves
    1 dried red chili pepper or 1 tablespoon of chili powder
    1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled feta cheese (OPTIONAL)

    Preparation

    Heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, celery, and garlic; cook 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender, stirring frequently.

    Next add chorizo or sausage of choice. Let cook, while stirring for 5min.

    Add water, red lentils, 1 tablespoon dill, bay leaves, chili, and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until lentils are tender.

    Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon dill, vinegar, salt, and black pepper; discard bay leaves and chili pepper if used.

    Next sprinkle with feta cheese if you'd like.
