buttered lentils with sausage and leeks

I have three huge sausages (freshly made, from school!), and I also have a cup of red lentils that have been sitting in the darkest area of my cabinet. Oh–and a leek and a half that will go limp very soon.

All I need is one more ingredient to tie these three things together. And there it is: butter.

Prepare the red lentils according to the package’s directions (add a bay leaf to the broth or water for a bit more flavor). Meanwhile, sweat thinly sliced leeks in a combination of butter and oil. Once soft, add crumbled sausage (casings removed–sorry boys) and cook until no longer pink.

Combine the lentils with the leeks and sausage. Stir in a generous amount of butter and season with S & P and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

This hearty dinner came together in less than half an hour, and couldn’t be simpler to prepare.

      So glad you liked it! It’s definitely one of my favorites, and I’ll have to try it with cheesy garlic bread!
