Ingredients

  • 4 bacon chopped
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3/4 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup green lentils
  • 1 cup brown lentils
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 12 oz Italian sausages

Method

In saucepan, saute bacon over medium-high heat until crisp; drain off fat.

Add carrots, onion, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper to pan; fry over medium heat, stirring, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

Add 2 cups (500 mL) water, lentils and tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until lentils are tender but not mushy, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, on small foil-lined rimmed baking sheet, broil sausages about 6 inches (15 cm) from heat, turning every 2 minutes, until well browned and no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.

Diagonally cut sausages into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Serve on lentil mixture.
