A satisfying and deliciously savoury casserole
I’ve often made sausage and lentil casseroles over the past few years, and venison sausages are a great choice for anyone looking for a lean option, as they are generally naturally lean, without being labelled as low-fat. I used the Tesco Finest ones in this (1 syn each on Slimming World), but they do vary,
I used to do a slow cooker version which included cranberries, but as they aren’t readily available at this time of year I tried it without and it was still lovely. If you don’t want to use venison sausages this would still be great using any of the low-fat sausage options on the market.
Good value puy lentils aren’t always easy to find in the supermarket- don’t be caught by the ready cooked ones, they are very expensive! Most health food shops sell them, and if you are stuck you can replace them with green lentils (but do try to get puy- they have a lovely consistency!)
