HelloFresh – Sausages with Lentils

December 16, 2016

My third recipe with HelloFresh, and – once more – one I thought I didn’t need a recipe for, and was pleasantly surprised.

I know how to cook a sausage – even one wrapped in bacon. The surprise was the lentil stew that went with it. It’s not something I have done, and it was easy and delicious.

In brief:

  1. Wrap sausages in bacon and put into a high oven.
  2. Chop an onion, and fry on a low/medium heat for 5 mins until soft.
  3. Slice a courgette, add to the onion, and continue to fry for 3 mins.
  4. Add a clove of garlic (chopped or pressed), a heaped teaspoon of cumin, 50g of red lentils, a tin of tomatoes, and half as much water. Plus a stock cube. Bring to a simmer, and then cook for 20 mins until the lentils soften. Stir occasionally to ensure that the lentils don’t burn on the bottom of the pan.
  5. After 20 mins, add 100g peas, stir and cook for a further 5-6 minutes.
  6. Serve the sausages on a bed of lentil stew, and an optional garnish of chopped parsley.

That’s it – it really couldn’t be easier, and tasty as anything – I could have happily eaten the lentils without the sausages.

But having said that, the sausages – nice and fat, and lightly spiced – were pretty nice as well!
