Method

  1. Fry the sausages in 1 tbsp oil in a casserole dish until brown. Remove. Tip in the carrots, celery and onion and cook for 10 mins, adding the chopped rosemary and half the garlic for the final min. Add the lentils, tomatoes and stock. Return the sausages, bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 20 mins. Remove the lid and cook for a further 10-15 mins until lentils are soft. Season.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes until tender. In another pan, heat the milk, remaining garlic and rosemary until just about to boil, then turn off heat. Drain the potatoes well.
  3. Sieve the hot milk over the rest of the potatoes and mash with the remaining oil, then season. Serve with the stew.

My goodness, so delicious! Lentils took a little longer than the recipe stated, we used meatballs instead of sausages and parsley instead of rosemary, but still so so very good!

This a gorgeous recipe! My one & half year old absolutely loved it, she wolfed it down. Was even better the next day as all the flavours had merged. Really tasty! Thx Good Food for sharing this one with us.

Really good. I mashed the garlic into the potato.

A fantastic winter recipe, made even better with the addition of chilli. We had it with jacket wedges instead of mash and it worked a treat.

Pretty nice and really satisying in winter. I used tinned lentils instead of dried and just added them 3 minutes before the end of cooking.

i made this as party food for my students - i cooked the sausages and lentils in a big pot for 'self service' and instead of mash i had crusty bread and slices of fried pollenta on the side to make the dish more 'portable'
made for a great combination

Made without the rosemary (as I didn't have any) and with normal mash and was still lovely - very filling :) Took about 5-10 minutes longer than stated for the lentils to go soft but other than that it's a great recipe.

This was a super easy, delicious winter warmer. I love rustic food so this was right up my street. Being a chilli addict I added some spice and it finished it off a treat. Was great with the mash but next time I'll serve with freshly made bread.
