Sausage, Sweet Potato & Lentil Casserole

I was a bit stuck for what to make for dinner last night and I decided to make something up as I went along. It turned out absolutely super yummy and so I thought I'd share it here. I hope you like it as much as I did. I had seconds, therefore depriving my husband on his return from playing a late round of golf!


Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Caramelised Red Onion and Pork Sausages
3 medium sized sweet potatoes - peeled and diced into 2cm cubes
Tin of Puy Lentils - (this had been in my cupboard for over a year!)
1 leek
1 clove of garlic- squished and chopped
2 small carrots - chopped fairly small
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 beef Oxo cube - I used the Puy lentil tin to measure the water added - 1 and half tins full
2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
Couple of dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
Salt and pepper


Roast sweet potato pieces in the oven for around 30 minutes at 180C

Brown the sausages on the hob and then remove from the pan

Next soften leeks and carrots, add the garlic after 5 mins and then the tin of Puy Lentils and cook for another 5 minutes

Once all the above is done add all those ingredients together, along with the tin of chopped tomatoes, stock cube with water and season with Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

Transfer the whole thing with a lid on to the oven and cook for around 40 minutes so that all the lovely flavours combine

Remove from the oven and there you have a really delicious dinner. Admittedly this sounds a bit of a wintry dish but to be honest we're not having the best of summers and last night was a bit chilly and I relaxed with a glass of wine and a big bowl of this and went back for more! Obviously you can use any sausages you like but I found that these were so delicious that I'd definitely use them again. I'd also say that you could bung in other veg, a few mushroom would be nice, maybe some red pepper, and an onion would be as good as a leek. Enjoy!
