Sausage and lentil hotpot
1 of 10

Sausage and lentil hotpot

The classic combination of pork and apple works wonderfully in sausages and is even more delicious when paired with lentils, vegetables and an optional splash of wine. This flavoursome and hearty hotpot can be cooked over a campfire and makes a warming and comforting alfresco supper.

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the sausages until browned on the outside. Remove from the pan, then add in the onion, garlic and peppers. Fry for 2-3 mins, then add in the wine, if using.
  2. Allow the wine to boil until nearly evaporated, then add the lentils, vegetable stock and some seasoning.
  3. Mix well, then return the sausages to the pan and simmer for 20-25 mins or until the liquid has reduced and the sausages are cooked through. Serve immediately.
