directions

  • Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan. Add the bacon and cook over medium heat until it is golden and has released its fat.
  • Add the onion, carrot, celery, leek, bay leaves, thyme and garlic to the pan and cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring from time to time. Add the sliced mushrooms, and cook a few more minutes until mushrooms have softened.
  • Meanwhile, brown the sausages, then cut them into 1/2 inch pieces.
  • Add the wine, stock and sausages to the pan and bring to the boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer the mixture for 20 minutes. Give it a stir from time to time, and add a little more red wine or stock if necessary.
  • At the end of this time, add the lentils.
  • Fold in the spinach and parsley and cook until wilted.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve piping hot.

  1. Definately hearty and comforting! I omitted the leek cause we're not big fans of it. I also had just dry orange lentils so I threw 1 and a half cups in at step 4 and continued on. Used mild Italian sausages (cause I can't get homemade chorizo in my city), 900mL of reduced salt beef stock and a 1/2 tsp dry thyme. We ate this with a nice garlic bread and it was very satisfying! Will make this again!
