Sausages and Green Lentils

Sausages and Green LentilsAm planning on having Sausages & Green Lentils for dinner tonight. Who knows if it’ll turn out as yummy-looking as the pic but hey ho I can only try!
Here’s the Recipe.

1 tbsp oil
8 sausages
1 large onion
2 garlic cloves
2 tbsp plain flour
900ml chicken stock
3 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp tomato puree
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
200g green lentils
2 bay leaves
Salt and pepper
Serve with some nice fresh crusty bread.

1. Heat a little oil in a frying pan, add chopped onion and cook till lightly browned & then add garlic and flour.
2. Stir in stock, sugar, tomato puree and vinegar, season and bring to the boil.
3. Put lentils and bay leaves in slow cooker, pour over hot stock mixture and add sausages.
4. Cover with lid and cook on Lowest oven setting for 5 hours or put in the slow cooker before you go to work.
5. Stir well then spoon into dishes, making sure to throw away the bay leaves.
6. Eat! (there should be enough food for 4!)

Some slow cooker recipes say you should brown the sausages first but it really makes little difference to the taste.

In a nutshell, I'm a Mum to three gorgeous daughters and two step-sons who are gradually making their own lives and leaving Mr. C and I plenty of time to enjoy life just as a couple again. I'm a big fan of Afternoon Tea & Corrie and hate, with a vengeance, violence in films! I love reading 'proper' books though I concede that my birthday Kindle was brilliant on holidays.
