Originally one of those dishes that you'd expect to find in a rural Italian family kitchen, our version is a wholesome, hearty bowl of bliss. The dish is based on a traditional meal served in Italy on New Year’s Day — with the mass of lentils representing abundant wealth and prosperity.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Pre-heat the oven to 230°C/ 210°C (fan)/ 450°F/ Gas 8

Grease an oven tray with 1-2 tbsp of oil and add the sausages

Put in the oven for 25 min or until browned


Rinse the lentils

Tip: Watch out for any stones in the lentils that may occur naturally in the harvesting process

Add the lentils and rosemary sprig to a pot with 1L (1.5L) of water and bring to a boil

Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 25-30 min or until tender


Peel and chop the onion finely

Crush the garlic, peel and chop finely

Add 1/2-1 tbsp of olive oil to a pan on a medium heat

Once the oil is hot, add the onion, garlic, 1 tsp (2 tsp) of sugar and salt to taste

Reduce the heat to low and cook for 20 min, or until caramalised


Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes into halves

Chop the parsley finely


Add the cherry tomatoes and red wine vinegar to the onion pan

Cook for 10 min, then add 30ml (60ml) of water to form a relish-like consistency

Break the mixture with a masher (alternatively with a slotted spoon) to form a relish


Once the lentils are done, drain well

Remove and discard the rosemary stalk

Add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil and chopped parsley to the lentils

Season generously with salt and black pepper
