Lentils with Sausage
The classic French combination of sausage and lentils makes for a satisfying dinner that can be on the table in less than an hour.
Why This Recipe Works
We began building flavor in our sausage and lentils recipe by sautéing onion, garlic, and thyme in some butter, then adding the lentils and chicken broth (which lent the dish fuller flavor than water), and simmering until the lentils were just tender. While the lentils cooked we seared the sausage in a hot nonstick skillet over medium-high heat with only a tablespoon of oil.
