Lentils and Sausage Crockpot Stew

Lentils and Sausage Crockpot Stew

If you are looking for an easy but hearty meal with some nice fresh bread or biscuits, this is a perfect choice! It is very versatile so change it up anyway you'd like!

Ingredients:
1 lb bag of lentils
1 aseptic box Chicken Broth - 4 cups (or whatever broth you desire)
1 15 oz. can of diced tomatoes
4 cans water
4 medium carrots or 2 canned carrots
4-6 potatoes, peeling and cubed
1/4 c. finely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves or 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 Tbsp. dried Basil
1 Tbsp. dried Parsley
1 14 oz. pkg Turkey sausage (or sausage of your choice, you could also use ground beef or pork!)

Place all of the ingredients except the meat, onion and garlic, into your crockpot.  Cook the meat with the onion and garlic and then place them into your pot. Simmer all day on low until you're ready to eat! Yield 10-12 servings.

  1. it looks great except for the sausage!! we've pretty much cut out ground beef (unless bison) and defnitely pork.....too many nitrates! but I could maybe do this with chunks of free range chicken?? I love a good stew....I would probably even just do it with veggies and the lentils :)

  2. Faith, you could use any meat you want or go meatless. The only thing I would be concerned about is that it may be more bland. The sausage brings with it more spices and flavors. So you may need to spice it up more. :)

  3. Oh please a little sausage is not bad for you and pork can actually be healthy, NOT everyone can afford free range chicken.

    What an uppity snob comment, seriously.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:17 This is great news!
