Stewed Lentils with Soy Sausage
2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
2 celery stalks, diced
One 14-oz package either Tofurky sausage or Field Roast grain sausage, sliced 1/4” thick
Two 15-oz cans lentils, drained lightly but not rinsed (I cooked 1 cup dried lentils in 6 cups water for 20-30 minutes until tender)
1 C diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 C minced fresh parsley
Sea salt & pepper to taste
Heat oil in large skillet. Add onion and saute until translucent. Add garlic, celery, & sausage & saute until golden brown. Add lentils, tomatoes, & thyme. Bring to a simmer then cook on low heat for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat & stir in parsley, salt & pepper. Serve with grain of your choice. I used whole wheat couscous because it's super fast.
The best thing about this dish? It makes lots so you can eat it for a few days!
