This Spicy Chorizo and Red Pepper Lentils recipe from MOB is full of flavour, easy to cook and great value, too. The smoky spiciness of the Spanish chorizo paired with the sweet charred flavour of the roasted peppers adds a real depth of flavour to this simple midweek meal. Ready in less than an hour, and all cooked in one pot to save on washing up, this dish is the perfect way to use up some cupboard essentials for an inexpensive but very satisfying dinner,. It also works perfectly for lunch the next-day - if you’re lucky enough to have any leftovers.
