What makes the recipe: Lentils and Spicy Sausage.

So many people have not learned about the wonders of lentils. They are a wonder legume and pulse that pack a mean punch of protein and keep you full… almost to the point where the spicy sausage is not needed. But in this recipe, the sausage adds a yummy kick of flavor and also kicks people who think that a bowl of soup cannot be a complete meal. YO. IT. CAN. and it is GREAT. I do it all the time.

It’s tagged cooking for two because it can serve two hungry people for Sunday lunch or a weeknight dinner (in less than an hour no doubt!) and then can serve both those people for lunch the next day – my type of recipe!

Hope you enjoy!
