  • 250 g red lentils

    1 chicken sausage

    100 g chicken ham

    2 large carrots

    3 small potatoes

    1 bay leaf

    1 red pepper (optional)

    A sprig of chopped fresh parsley

    1/2 tsp salt

    A pinch of saffron

    2 cloves

    250 ml red wine

    2 Tbsp olive oil

    1 large onion

    2 garlic cloves


Soak the lentils in water for half an hour. Cut the sausage and ham into dice-shaped pieces.

Peel and wash the carrots and potatoes. Slice the carrots and halve the potatoes (unless they are very small). Wash and slice a small red pepper, if using.

Drain the lentils and put them in a saucepan. Add enough water to cover them and add the sausage, ham, carrots, potatoes, bay leaf, pepper, if using, parsley, salt, saffron, cloves and wine.

Put the pan over a low heat and cover. Simmer for 7-8 minutes.

Slice the onion and garlic. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion and garlic for 5 minutes. When soft, add to the other ingredients in the saucepan.

Let the lentil stew simmer for at least 40 minutes. Boil off any excess liquid at the end. 

Key Ingredients: Chicken, Ham, Carrot, Potatoes, Bay Leaf, Bell Pepper, Parsley, Salt, Saffron, Cloves, Red Wine, Olive Oil, Onion, Garlic
