Heat a non-stick frying pan, add the chorizo, red onion, garlic and celery and cook over a moderate heat for about 5 minutes until the onion is beginning to soften.
Add the turkey pieces and red pepper to the pan and cook for 3–4 minutes until the turkey is coloured all over.
Stir in the lentils, wine and stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, cover and cook gently for about 30 minutes until the lentils are tender, stirring occasionally. Season to taste and serve sprinkled with chopped parsley.
Puy lentils are tiny, grey-green lentils from the Puy region of France. They have a distinctive flavour and hold their shape and colour when cooked. But if they are not available, you can use any other green or brown lentils.
