Spicy Sausage

This is on of the family favourites that always appears on our meal planning posts! It is very simple & very quick to do too, which is probably why I love it!


  • 6 Sausages (adapt this to your family but both myself & my other half have 2 each and the children have 1 each)
  • 1 onion, chopped.
  • 1 tin green lentils
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 beef oxo cube & 100 ml water
  • Shake of paprika
  • Chilli flakes (if you wish to spice it up after the kids have their portion!)


  1. Fry off the sausages until they are cooked, then place to one side. Chop into chunks once it’s cooled.
  2. In a deep pan fry off the onion in a little oil until soft.
  3. Add the drained lentils & chopped tomatoes, leave to simmer for a few minutes.
  4. Add the oxo cube, water, paprika and sausage to the pan and leave to simmer for about 10 minutes. If you want to spice it up a little add the chilli flakes after taking the children’s portions out.
  5. Serve with rice.
