A one pot casserole that is comfort and warmth
Ingredients
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 pork sausage (about 90g)
  • 1/4 a brown onion, diced
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic (equal to one clove)
  • 1/3 cup of red lentils
  • 1 - 1 and 1/4 cup of chicken stock
  • 30g of bacon, diced (about two shortcut rashers)
  • 1-2 large mushrooms (eg. portobello or shitake)
Instructions
  1. Heat a small to medium frypan (skillet) on a medium to medium-high heat (I used an electric stove on a setting of 4 out of 6)
  2. Spray with olive oil
  3. Add the bacon, garlic and onion and fry until bacon is starting to crisp (about 4-5 minutes)
  4. Add the sausage and mushroom and brown the sausages, about 5 minutes
  5. If there are some brown bits on the bottom of the pan, add about a quarter of cup of chicken stock and deglaze the pan. Then add the rest of the stock and the lentils.
  6. Bring to the boil then turn down to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed and the lentils and sausage are cooked. Stir occasionally to make sure things don't stick.
