AlterVizo con lentejas

Stewed lentils with AlterVizo and vegetables

(4 people)

1 pack of AlterVizo
3 tablespoons of olive oil
1 onion
2 leeks
3 carrots
2 medium-sized potatoes
400 g of cooked pardina or beluga lentils (jar)
1 bay leaf
4 sprigs of parsley
Salt

Step by step:

  1. Peel the vegetables, wash them, chop the onion and fry it for 10 minutes over a medium-low heat in a pan with the hot oil and a pinch of salt.
  2. Cut the leeks and carrots into wide slices, cut the potatoes into medium-sized pieces, wash, dry and chop the parsley leaves and set aside.
  3. Add all the vegetables and the bay leaf to the pan, sauté everything together for 5 minutes, pour in water up to an inch over the vegetables, lower the heat and add salt to taste. Then cover and leave to cook for 25-30 minutes depending on the thickness of the vegetables.
  4. Add the lentils to the pot and mix everything together; if you prefer them soupy, add a little more water or stock. Separate 3-4 pieces of potato and 3-4 pieces of carrot, split them with a fork and add them to the pot to give body to the stew. Cut the AlterVizo into slices.
  5. Turn up the heat and when it comes to a boil, add the AlterVizo, cook for 2 minutes, sprinkle with the parsley and serve.

    • Splitting the potatoes is an old trick that is used to bring the starch out of them and thus give more body to a stew.

    • You do it by making a small cut in the potato, usually with a knife, and then without removing it, pulling it towards you until the potato is split, thus separating it from the rest.

    • The pieces will be uneven, and in this case we recommend they are bite-sized to shorten cooking time.
