Lentil and Sausage Stew
- Active Time 10m
- Total Time 6h 40m
You can turn this into a hearty vegetarian stew by using vegetable broth instead of the chicken broth and substituting tofu hot dogs for the sausage. Note that lentils are slow to become tender, especially in a tomato-based broth, so this stew is cooked the entire time on high heat setting.
- 1 cup green lentils, picked over, rinsed
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 ribs celery, chopped
- 1 carrot, peeled, diced
- 1 small green bell pepper, seeded, diced
- 1 large russet potato, peeled, cut in 1/2-inch dice
- 1 bay leaf
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
- 3 cups canned chicken broth
- 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes in puree
- 3/4 cup kielbasa, turkey kielbasa or other fully-cooked smoked sausage, sliced
Put the lentils, vegetables, bay leaf, garlic, curry powder and salt in a 4 1/2 -
to 6-quart slow cooker. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on
high heat setting for 6 to 7 hours, until the lentils are tender. Taste during
the last 30 minutes of cooking, adding more salt if necessary.
