This is a modified version of the recipe that was on the package of the black lentils I bought. Black Lentils are smaller than regular ones and do not require pre-soaking. They are also called belluga lentils, a pic of them is here For this recipe to be gluten-free suitable care to be taken that gluten-free sausages are used and serve with a gluten-free bread

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown sausage over medium heat with onions and celery breaking them into small pieces.
  2. Pour in the water, add pepper and lentils. Stir all the ingredients, bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring from time to time to prevent the lentils from sticking or burning. Remove lid for the last 1/2 hour while simmering.
  4. Serve in bowls with crusty bread.

I have also made this recipe several times. It is absolutely delicious. I found it on the bag of Trader Joe's black lentils (which they don't sell any longer).
