For those who are slating it - I bet it is down to your lentils, you're probably leaving them in too long. Try it with a good quality tin of lentils and see how it goes. Lentils are not the prettiest looking ingredient, so it's going to look sludgy if you're not careful. I added some passata to mine as well and it gives it a delicious tang, which complimented the pepper and sausages.

Easy recipe and very tasty. Added some worcestershire sauce to give it a bit of a kick. Agreed that not the prettiest looking dish but served with mash its great comfort food. Will be making again.

A big disappointment. Although the taste was ok, the colour was an awful greyish brown. This may have been because I used ordinary (orange) lentils, but even extra red wine did not improve it. Will stick to my usual sausage hotpot recipe with onion, red pepper, passata and beans in future.

Enjoyed by everyone in our house, adults and children alike. Would definitely make again but will either cook the lentils for a little longer or use a carton of ready cooked lentils instead. I used a regular, white onion but will try a red onion next time for a change. Lovely oniony, garlicky taste to the lentils.

I had friends over and everyone of my guests absolutely loved this meal. I have made this a couple of times and it has always gone down really well. i serve mine with Savoy Cabbage and creamy mash.

This recipe is great! I've made it many times now, with wine & with extra stock and both are great. I use dry red lentils and they cook great!

Worst recipe I have ever tried from Good Food. I'm at a loss as to why it's got so many generous ratings.

This is especially good if you use Toulouse sausages and, as stated above, it does need a bit more cooking liquid.

Having read comments we made sure we added extra stock and wine and cooked for longer than recommended. Turned out really well, and was great with mash. It didn't look pretty, but tasted fab. Will definately have again.
