To make this spicy dish even spicier, use hot Italian turkey sausage.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine 4 cups water, broth, and lentils in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Cook 30 minutes or until almost tender.

Step 2

Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, rosemary, and garlic to pan. Sauté 10 minutes or until tender. Add sausage; cook 5 minutes, stirring to crumble. Add tomato paste and remaining ingredients; cook for 1 minute or until heated. Add sausage mixture to lentils; bring to a boil. Cook 30 minutes or until lentils are tender.

I thought this was delicious! Hearty and savory. But then, I am a big lentil fan, so I suppose that helps. My only change was chicken sausage because I couldn't find turkey sausage at the store. The sausage adds a lot of the flavor, so choose wisely. It made exactly six cups.

I came out w/more like 8 cups. It's good, tasty, I expect it to freeze well, and it's a decent dinner and lunch that can be warmed up at work. I'll admit that I have a palate that can tolerate a lot of heat, and there wasn't a lot in this recipe. I made the recipe as written.

Basics are spot on for a weekday meal. I increased spices overall, adding 1/2 tsp chili powder, garlic, black pepper and some chopped sundried tomatoes after following the recipes exactly and finding the above improved the results for my palate. Next time I will try with adding more veggies, such as increased carrot, kale or spinach.
