Sausage and Lentils

Sharing is caring!

A simple dish with a distinct flavor that will leave you craving more. Lentils are cooked with Polish sausage and cumin to make a fast and satisfying meal that is ready in under 30 minutes with minimal effort. Use any type of sausage – I have used bratwurst, chorizo and leftover hot links as well.


  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup dried lentils
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 8 ounces fully cooked kielbasa or Polish sausage, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine water, lentils and onion in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 15 minutes. Add sliced sausage, and season with cumin, salt and pepper. Simmer until lentils are tender, about 5 to 10 more minutes.
