Lentils are great because they’re a carbohydrate source that’s high in protein and potassium! They’re also crazy cheap so I want to try and start using them in loads more recipes 🙂
-A handful of lentils
-A handful of cherry tomatoes
-A handful of spinach
-A pinch of salt and pepper
-A splash of red wine (or cooking wine)
-Two tablespoons of tomato passata
-A teaspoon of steak seasoning
-A tablespoon of coconut oil
- Put the lentils in a small saucepan and cover with around three times their volume’s worth of boiling water. Leave to simmer on a low heat for 10-15 minutes while you prepare the other food.
- Chop to sausage into bite sized pieces along with the mushrooms. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the sausage and mushroom to the pan.
- Add the tomatoes, red wine and spinach and stir until the spinach has wilted and the wine has reduced, then add the passata and steak seasoning to create a bit of a sauce.
- When the lentils are cooked (They will be soft through) pop them on a plate as a sort of bed then spoon the sausage and sauce on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
