Fancy-Pants Bangers & Lentils w Red Pepper & Onion Relish
A classic reinvented into something lighter with BIGGER flavour and shhhhh, healthier.
Serves 2 - takes 10 mins
- 4 sausages (spend $ on goodies), works well with chicken too.
- tin of lentils
- cup of any stock (or water)
- 1/2 a carrot
- 1 onion
- red pepper
- bunch of thyme
- Dijon mustard (I love Maille)
- balsamic vinegar (again, I like Maille)
Pre-heat oven to 450. Sear sausages in hot pan w a splash of oil. When browned both sides slide into oven for 5 mins.
Meanwhile... In a pot sweat off 1/2 finely chopped onion and 1/2 finely chopped carrot w a splash of olive oil. Add rinsed lentils, heaped tablespoon of Dijon, stock, a few sprigs of thyme, salt/pepper. Simmer on medium heat until lentils suck up most of the liquids.
Onion Red Pepper Relish
In a pan add thinly sliced 1/2 onion and thinly sliced red pepper w a very generous splash of olive oil. Sweat until brown. Add tablespoon or more of balsamic. Reduce 30 seconds more.
Lentils on plate, sausages on top then your lazy onion/pepper relish. Dat's comfort food baby.
