  • Community News: Lockdown Diary Day XYZ+N: More lockdown cooking - Lentil Soup with Vegetarian Sausages

    Citizen W @CitizenW Brixton updated 6 months ago

    This is based on a very traditional German recipe, though normally rather cooked in the winter.
    1) soak lentils for a few hours, then boil until soft (appr 1 hour)
    2) chop a red pepper, mushrooms, onion and garlic briefly in some olive or sunflower oil

    3) add vegetables to the lentils, add pepper, salt, some chilli pepper, cumin powder and the (vegetarian) sausages to the lentils, add some extra water and boil for another 20 minutes.
    4) serve with fresh bread.

    • Is this the infamous Sausage Surprise ?

    • Sounds lovely, we have been using up our lentils in soup and dhal. Need to get more, we have the veg..

    • @Bo... I think "sausage surprise" is more like baked beans with sausages, no?

    • It's a thing in Eastenders, Jean always makes it but nobody likes it, don't know really what it is.

    • Chilli, peppers.....that'll keep you warm on a cold day 😋
