Sausage and Lentil Hotpot

I wanted something different and stole this one from Waitrose.

My version used the following ingredients.

  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pack of Black Farmer sausages
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 large carrot, cut into cubes
  • 1tsp ground cumin
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 200g lentils
  • 200g cavolo nero cabbage, shredded

The method was as follows.

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the sausages and fry for 5 minutes until browned. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon. Add the onion, garlic, leek and carrot and cook for 5 minutes until softened.
  2. Add the cumin, bay leaves and lentils with 1.5 litres water. Bring to the boil then simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until thick and soupy and the lentils are almost tender.
  3. Stir in the cabbage, return the sausages to the pan, cover, and cook for a further 5 minutes until the cabbage is tender.
  4. Discard the bay leaves and season. Serve in warmed bowls

It was good.

  2. I cooked it and froze it, as time caught up with me. And other things too! The flavour wasn’t that gentle as the sausages are pretty spicy. Gluten-free ones often are.
