We ate this tonight and it was really good. I may add bacon next time and I forgot to buy garlic. I had just purged our old garlic from the fridge after our Colorado trip and didn’t replenish it. We served it with bread and salad.
2 16oz pkgs of Lentils – I used Goya
1 red bell pepper
1 package of mild publix italian sausage, deskinned. 5 in a package
about 5 shakes of soy sauce
1/2 cup rice
1 packet of Sazon con Azafran- I actually used 2 packets
Instructions: With a bit more than a 2 to one ration boil the lentils with water the WHOLE onion and the red pepper cut and half deseeded, about 45 min. When the Lentils are soft, deskin the sausage and fry it up. Take out the onion and red pepper and chop it up together or blend it together. Add the packet of Sazon, the cut up onion, red pepper, garlic, and fried sausage into the lentils with 1/2 cup of the rice. You may need to add a bit of water. Add 5 shakes of the soy sauce. Bring to a boil and then simmer on low. Should be done and you can serve when you want to.
What you need to be careful of is burning the bottom of the pot. Make sure you don’t keep the temperature too high and watch and stir. Probably something you want to know – you may no’t want to multitask while cooking once you add the rice and other ingredients.
If you don’t like Lentil – don’t try this.
