I think I’ve never met a foodie like Antonio, who devours food as passionately as he cooks it. For him, every meal is a feast, a ritual.
We share the love for the step-by-step home made food and curiosity for the huge diversity of the raw product.
He recently asked me for my lentils with chorizo stew recipe, or I should say, my mum’s, posted long ago here. I say it’s her top secret recipe, but it has nothing special except the love she puts in it.
It’s a nutritious and balanced dish. Lentils are a good source of protein. The potato and rice will do for the carbohydrates and the chorizo will spice up the mixture.
Another curiosity when cooking this dish abroad. In Spain, it’s easy to find lentils in a supermarket. Just lentils. In the UK, one can find a huge variety of green or brown or red… Be adventurous!
