Comfort food doesn’t have to be unhealthy. For some reason it seems like it should be if its comforting. This meal offers both comfort and nutrition as lentils are very good for you yet delicious at the same time. I hope you give this one a try.

What You’ll Need To Make Sausage and Lentils:

5 plump good quality sausages (Italian, Smoked, Polish all work great)

1-1 pound package of lentils

Olive Oil (for dressing the lentils and for sauteing)

1/2 white onion

3 garlic cloves

5 cups of water

1 1/2 cups of your favorite red wine ( I use Cabernet Sauvignon)

salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Directions:

Begin by mincing the garlic and chopping up the onion.

Using a dutch oven or a heavy bottomed covered pot, drizzle about 2 tbsp of olive oil and begin heating the pot on medium. Once heated add the sausages and begin browning.

Once the sausages are crisp and cooked, remove them, cover and set aside.

Reduce heat to medium low and add a couple of swirls of olive oil to the pan. Add the onions and begin sauteing.

When the onions are translucent, deglaze the pan by adding the wine and stirring up all the bits on the bottom.

Add the garlic, lentils and a bit more salt and pepper.
