This is what I am cooking today!
I'm following WebMD closely for suggestions on eating better and healthier and I'm happy to report, the Mediterranean diet I grew up with still serves me at this age.
These are lentils and sausages. You can use any kind of sausage, by the way. I prefer Italian, spicy links, cut up small, not whole.
Here is what you do.
In a deep casserole dish, saute' carrots, onions, garlic and celery until tender. Add rinsed lentils and vegetable stock to cover plus a couple of extra inches of liquid. Cook until lentils are tender.
Cook your sausages in a separate pan. I prick my sausages, wrap them in paper towels and microwave them for a minute at a time until all the pink is gone.
Serve a bowl of lentils with one or two sausages per person.
A green salad would round up the meal, as crusty bread and a glass of Merlot.
