  1. Place the lentils, carrots, onion, garlic and celery in a pot and cover with water. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until the ingredients are soft so you can blend them.
  2. Add the spices and olive oil and gently stir. Blend the mixture but not completely. 
  3. To serve – add a spoon of yogurt and throw a few chorizo pieces on top, sprinkle some fresh parsley.

Tip: For a vegetarian version try adding some crumbled feta cheese on top instead of the chorizo.
