Lentil and Sausage Stew






This meal was cooked for new year after seeing all the Italian blogs with lentil and sausage recipes I got craving it and round foods are supposed to be good luck or so they say :-) It was easy to make and so good for you. Some of you may have made new years resolutions and since we are now going into February maybe even struggling. I must confess I never really make them and I feel its best to eat healthy all year surrounding yourself with a network of supportive like minded people. 




Ingredients:

  • one pack of chicken sausages or any of your choice
  • one cup of brown lentils
  • 1/2 a red onion chopped 
  • 1/2 a red pepper chopped 
  • one small zucchini chopped
  • one small can of tomatoes 
  • 4 cloves of garlic chopped
  • salt to taste 
Method:

  1. boil the lentils for about 20-30 minutes until cooked and set aside
  2. saute onions and garlic in olive oil for about 5 minutes
  3. add the red pepper and zucchini for about 7 minutes until soft
  4. add the can of tomatoes 
  5. then add the chopped cooked sausage and lentils and simmer for 15 - 20 min
  6. serve with polenta 





We returned home from the huge what seemed like a round the world trip last night, so good to be home and excited to get cooking again, thanks for joining us
