Dee’s leek and onion Vegan Sausage with thyme mash and lentils cooked in red wine AKA “fancy bangers and mash”

13 Apr
Serves 2-3
What you need:
– 1 pack of Dee’s vegan sausages
– 500g potatoes
– 1-2 teaspoons fresh thyme
– 25ml olive oil/vegan butter
– a little dairy free milk
– 250g Puy lentils
– 125 ml red wine
– 50g tomato puree
– 1 stock cubs
– 2-3 garlic cloves sliced
– 1 teaspoon of thyme
salt/pepper
Method:
– Soak the lentils over night, or for about 6 hours.
– Cook sausages as per instructions.
– Cut and steam/boil potatoes, till a knife goes through the potatoes easily. Mash and season with some salt and pepper, olive oil/vegan butter and 1-2 teaspoon of thyme. Add milk if your mash is a still too dry.
– In a small pot, add the drained, soaked lentils, red wine, thyme, sliced garlic, tomato puree and stock cube. Simmer for 10-15min or until the lentils are cooked. There should still be a little liquid, if not add some water.
– When all is ready, serve with the mash in the middle of the dish, lentils dashed around, and the sausage leaning the the mash
Tips:
– Put the thyme in a lunch bag and leave it in the freezer over night. Give it a shake and most of the leaves will fall right off. This makes it easier to use. Use as normal in recipes.
– I love to leave the skin on the potatoes. Even when I plan to mash them. It add extra nutrition, and a nice texture. Try it.
