It's a crazy week for work, and I needed something easy to make that scratched the itch to eat bad food (while still staying healthy.) This was freaking delicious!
Source: Ask the Food Geek | Serves: 4 | Time: 20 min
Changes: skipped bay leaves; used fake meat
1 cup dried brown #lentils
4 Beyond Meat brat sausages
12 oz #kale chopped
4 cloves garlic, minched
4 tbsp dijon or stone ground mustard
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
Salt to taste
6 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Cook lentils according to the package, usually using 3x the amount of water as lentils. Add bay leaves to the water at the beginning of cooking. Typically bring to a boil then simmer (or remove from heat) for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile mix dressing ingredients together and set aside.
After making the dressing, you should have about 5-10 minutes left on the lentils. Then cut sausage into slices and brown in a hot pan for 3 minutes per side.
When everything is ready, massage dressing all over kale. Divide kale onto plates, then top with lentils and sausage.
