Pimentón, the vivid spice at the heart of this stew, is actually a special grade of paprika, or the powder of red chile peppers. Native to the Americas, red chiles were brought to Spain in the late 15th Century, by a passenger aboard Christopher Columbus’ second voyage. The peppers were planted in Spain and thrived in its unique climate. By the 17th Century, pimentón, the smoked and ground form of the pepper, emerged. Here, it adds robust flavor as it toasts with aromatic vegetables, then simmers with tender, earthy beluga lentils.
