lentil & veg stew  
I finally made the lentil version of the chickpea & veg stew that you helped me with a few weeks ago.

lentil & veg stew

most of an onion
garlic clove
1 carrot
3/4 yellow pepper
some butternut squash
couple of frozen green beans
5 brown cap mushrooms
3 slices of chorizo, quartered
tin of puy lentils
tin of chopped tomatoes
chilli powder
salt & pepper
tomato paste
1/2 veg stock cube in mug of hot water

Fry the onion & garlic for a few minutes. Add the chorizo, let it colour the onion.
Add the carrot, yellow pepper, squash, green beans, mushrooms. Fry more.
Add the lentils, stock, tomatoes. Season and add tomato paste.
Simmer for about half an hour.

I served with pasta yesterday and couscous today. Both worked.

It's sort of meaty. Due to the lentils, I reckon, rather than the chorizo.

I would have taken a photo, but it's ugly :-)
