- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, sliced
- 3/4 pound bulk chorizo sausage
- 5 ribs celery, sliced
- 1 cup dried lentils
- 3 cups water
- 1 teaspoon ground dried turmeric
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- salt and pepper to taste
- Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic, and cook until it turns golden brown, about 45 seconds. Add the chorizo sausage; cook and stir until the sausage is crumbly and beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Stir in celery, and cook until the celery softens, about 4 minutes more.
- Pour off any excess grease from the sausage, then add the lentils and water. Season with turmeric, curry powder, and cumin. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 40 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.
