Lentils with onions and peppers with chicken sausage
This is a very easy and healthy dish to make. I added some sliced cucumber with the onions and peppers this time and I was very pleased with the results. You can use your favorite sausage, I cook mine on the grill. Enjoy.
1 cup dried lentils (I used green)
2 cups chicken stock
3 peppers your choice cut in strips
1/2 yellow onion cut thin
1 small cucumber cut in stips
Salt and pepper
2 chicken sausage
Place the lentils and stock in a sauce pan on high heat bringing to a boil for about 4-5 minutes. Turn heat to a simmer and cooked covered until the lentils are the soft texture you like. Mine took about 15 minutes to cook.
In a skillet over medium heat add the oil. Add the peppers, onion, cucumber and saute until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook the sausage on the grill until cooked through.
To serve place the lentils in the middle of the plate and top with the vegetables. I do not season the lentils; I like the earthy flavor. If you want to season your lentils, do so after cooking. If you season the lentils while cooking they can become hard. Serve the sausage sliced into chunks either next to or on top of the lentils.
