Here is a quick and easy meal with the added goodness of lentils replacing rice in a classic Jambalaya.



  1. Clean lentils by rinsing thoroughly and pick over if necessary. Place the lentils in 3 cups water and boil for 15-20 min. or until desired doneness, don’t let them get mushy, you want them still a bit crunchy. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, saute the onion, garlic, shrimp, and celery in the olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat for 3 min. or until shrimp are cooked and onion is translucent. Add in the salt, pepper, pepper flakes and paprika. Stir well and cook for 1 min.
  3. Add in the carrots, sausage, cooked lentils, cooked sausage, Worcestershire, tomato sauce and water. Heat through and serve!
