There’s been a fair bit of comfort food cooking going on this weekend at Casa Az. Yesterday I made some lovely leek & potato soup (must do that more often), and this morning Peter decided to make one of his puchero stews, this time with lentils instead of the usual white beans. However, he started off with the entire kilo bag of lentils (instead of half), which start off looking like the right amount, but soon grow. Oops.
So I came to the rescue, moved half his lentils to another pot, and made a tikka masala with lots of veggies (onion, garlic, courgette, tomato, spinach…). Lucky these will freeze well. I think this will be the lentil quota for the winter.
