Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage Recipe
Lentils, tomatoes, carrot and Polish sausage cooked in beef broth in a slow cooker.
Lentil soup flavored with sausage and herbs. Serve with Romano cheese sprinkled on top of each serving bowl.
Prepared in a slow cooker for ease, this spiced, vegetable-packed, Mediterranean-inspired lentil stew is sure to please!
I liked this recipe but waited and browned my sausage and then added it with one hour left to the slow cooker. I liked it better this way my sausage was not mushy. Good flavors.
Let the slow cooker do all the work in this tasty chicken and lentil soup with chicken thighs, tomatoes, and green lentils.
This was a delicious, satisfying stew, perfect for a fall or winter evening or perhaps for a Boxing Day lunch. The recipe didn't specify red or green lentils. I made it with red lentils, and it was perfect. Even my five-year-old son ate it, and that says a lot. Very quick and easy to make. My crock pot is my new best friend!
I love lentils and was looking for a little something different to do with them when I happened upon this recipe. Well, lets just say I could not keep my husband from dipping into the crock pot over and over again before it was time for dinner. This was really wonderful! I did make two changes though. Instead of using plain diced tomatoes, I used diced tomatoes with green chilis. I also chopped up a small onion and put it into the mix. I gave this recipe 5 stars because I think it would have been wonderful without the changes I made, we just like our food with a little bit of a "bite" to it. Not only was this meal yummy, but very economical as well. I served with warm crusty bread and a big salad and I was able to feed my family of 5 for under $10.00, with leftovers to boot. Thank you so much, I will be making again for sure!
My only problem with this recipe was the lentils. They were still a little on the crunchy side after 5 hours in my crockpot on high. Other than that, the flavor was excellent, so next time I think I'll just leave it cooking a little longer.
My husband and toddler are such big fans - I get rave reviews for this simple, no-hassle dish! I added twice as many carrots and celery, as well as onion and a dash of cayenne. I don't have a slow-cooker, but the lowest setting on the stovetop worked just fine! Next time I'll try a little spinach and some spicier sausage.
