Before you start
It is not necessary to soak the lentils in advance.
- Prepare the vegetables: Finely chop the garlic, onion(s), carrot(s), and celery stalk(s). Mince the chili pepper.
- Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the vegetables and chili pepper, then sauté 2-3 min until they are slightly softened. Stir in the lentils then cook 1 min.
- Pour in the broth, wine, and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until the lentils are cooked al dente, about 30 min. Stir occasionally and check that the lentils remain moist, adding some more broth or water if necessary. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Meanwhile, cook the sausages on a medium-hot grill until brown and crisp, about 2-3 min per side. Alternatively, sauté the sausages in a grooved grill-pan, then add them to the lentils. Cover then cook an additional 5 min. Sprinkle with the chopped parsley (optional) then serve.

strivingvegmarch 30, 2009 | I would make this recipe again
First time around I burned the lentils! Second time around I increased the amount of stock to 1 cup and it turned out really well.
