There are thousands of ways to make them, and surely you have your own way of cooking them. Today we are going to show you ours. Some lentils braised in the style of my grandmother. They are delicious and the most picturesque. In addition, lentils are very nutritious, have very little fat, and are a source of iron, perfect for preventing the appearance of anemia, so they should be eaten once a week.


  1. We prepare a little olive oil in a saucepan and add the julienned vegetables: onion, carrot, garlic, and fry.
  2. When about 15 minutes have passed and we see that the vegetables are golden brown, we add two teaspoons of paprika from the vera and let it brown a little.
  3. Next, add warm water, until the pot is filled, the lentils, the potato cut into squares, the well-washed head of garlic, the ham bone, the chicken shank, the sausages and the blood sausage. The water should cover about one two fingers above all the ingredients.
  4. Cook over low heat until the lentils are tender about an hour and a half or two hours. Until we see that the broth is consumed, since they should not be excessively soupy.
  5. After this time and when we have them ready, we can only enjoy them.
