Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Heat half the oil in a non-stick pan and soften the onion for 5 mins. Stir in the lentils, pour over the stock, then cover and simmer for 25 mins until the lentils are just cooked and most of the liquid has evaporated. If the lentils look dry before they’ve finished cooking, splash in a little water.
  2. Meanwhile, put the sausages in a small roasting tin, drizzle with the remaining oil and roast for 25 mins – adding the tomatoes with 8 mins to go and giving the tin a good shake. Season the lentils, then spoon onto plates and top with the sausages, tomatoes and any juices.

This is delicious, I make it quite often. However I have changed a few bits and do the following: Brown the sausages in frying pan first, then the oven. This is mostly because my Husband likes them VERY well done. Add worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, rosemary, garlic and thyme. Usually make it with chicken stock but recently had some ham stock to use and it was to die for. My baby also loves to eat the lentils.

Like Beth, we used tinned green lentils and therefore reduced the cooking time. Less stock was needed as a result as they didn't need to absorb the liquid like dry lentils would. We threw in some tomato puree, thyme and plenty of pepper and cooked the onions with a little balsamic vinegar at the beginning. Nice and easy dish!

I used tinned green lentils & just added to the onions to warm up. Very tasty & easy!

OH and I enjoyed this although planned to make it at the weekend when it was cold and rainy and was a bit autumnal for the sunshine last night! It is a good winter warmer as the intro says.

Added a bit of garlic puree to the onions and sprinkled parsley over the top for colour, was really tasty and simple to prepare. It took both the lentils and sausages longer than stated, but that always happens to me.

Served with broccoli and crusty bread and butter.

A big hit in our house, a wee drop of mushroom ketchup in the lentils and I usually use venison sausages - not a meat eater myself but the family really enjoyed.

Maybe with veggie sausages? Looks good though.

I made this last night, and it went down very well with my husband. Will definitely cook again. I did have to cook the sausages for 5 or 10 mins longer though.

This was really lovely. I also added a tin of chickpeas and a splash of Worcester Sauce. Served with crusty bread.
