Garlic Lentils and Spicy Sausage

Ingredients

1/2 pound Dry lentils- or so
3 bay leaves
4 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of olive oil
sausage (links or patties) Spicy Italian is the best
Oil/butter (to brown the sausage)

Preparation

1
Rinse lentils and place in a sauce pan.
2
Cover them with water, add half onion and bay leaves.
3
Cook until tender (but not mushy, the lentils should have a bit to them). Drain, discard bay and onion.
4
Fine chop garlic and paste with salt.
5
In separate bowl add olive oil and add garlic paste. Set aside (allow the garlic to infuse in the oil).
6
Add hot lentils to the garlic/oil mix and set aside.
7
While the lentils are boiling start cooking the sausage. Start the links in a pan and cover them half way with water. Allow them to cook through, once the water has boiled out add oil or butter and crisp the casings.
8
Serve with the warm lentils.

are you going to be a chef?

Sigh, that would be fun, but no. I am a better writer than chef (sadly this is one of my few dishes I make). But I am always on the look out for gluten free (and tasty) dishes. This is one of my favorites. I love lentils.
