This is a cheap, tasty and filling meal for 4, made in one pot. You could add side dishes such as creamed potatoes, or anything that you fancy. I served it with roast potatoes and garden peas, this fed 6.
One Pot Sausage and Lentil Stew
1 Tbsp olive oil 400g pack sausages 1 onion, finely chopped 1 garlic clove, crushed 1 red pepper, sliced 250g lentils (I used puy lentils) 150ml vegetable stock 125ml red wine or extra stock
Heat oil in a pan, cook the sausages until browned, then remove. Tip in remaining oil, onion, garlic and pepper, then cook, about 5 mins more until softened. Add lentils and sausages to the pan with the stock and wine, if using. Bring up to the boil, then simmer for 20 mins until lentils have softened and sausages are cooked through.
