Sausage & Lentils with Potatoes


 This meal is perfect for those cold winter days, yet it will warm your downstairs ahead of the next snowfall. The hearty feast costs very little and can be prepared in ten minutes. This dish features chicken sausage, lentils, potatoes, and cream. The recipe concludes with a sauce that incorporates milk and butter with cayenne pepper as well as salt and pepper to taste.

Sausage & Lentils with Potatoes


1/2 cup of green lentils

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/2 cup chopped carrots

8 oz. Cheese Sausage 

4-6 medium-sized potatoes 

1 teaspoon of salt and pepper each to taste. 

3 cups of water or vegetable broth.


Step 1: In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped onions and carrots, stirring often to prevent burning. Cook until they turn translucent. About 10 minutes or so.

Step 2: Add the lentils to the onions and carrots and stir frequently to prevent them from sticking together. Stir occasionally until they are COMPLETELY dry and no liquid remains in the pot. This takes about 15-20 minutes (or so).

Step 3: Once the lentils are done, add the water or broth. Stir. Then bring to a boil and immediately turn heat to low. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Step 4: Add potatoes, stirring to incorporate them without breaking them apart. (Or if you like, cut your potatoes into chunks instead of small cubes. It is up to you!)

Step 5: Place the sausage in a skillet with olive oil over medium heat until they are browned and cooked thoroughly on each side. Be careful not to burn them! Add salt and pepper on each side as it cooks, making sure they are evenly coated, and cook thoroughly before flipping each side.
