For an easy meal and taste adventure, this hot slaw recipe for two. Tender lentils, smoked sausage, vegetables, and zippy vinaigrette cook together for a fantastic blend of flavors. Serve the hearty meal with rustic whole grain bread.

1 1/2   cups   water
3/4   cup   dry lentils, rinsed and drained
6    ounces   fully cooked smoked Polish sausage, bratwurst, or kielbasa
1    cup   loose-pack frozen whole kernel corn
1/4   cup   chopped sweet red or green pepper
2    tablespoons   water
3    cups   shredded cabbage or shredded cabbage with carrot
1/4   cup   Pepper or Garlic Vinaigrette
    Purple kale, cabbage or lettuce leaves
In a medium saucepan stir together the water and lentils. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes or until lentils are tender. If liquid is not absorbed, drain the lentils.
Meanwhile, cut sausage in half lengthwise. Slice into 1/4-inch-thick pieces. In a large skillet combine the sausage, corn, sweet red or green pepper, and water. Cook, covered, over medium heat about 4 minutes or until the sausage and corn are heated through and pepper is tender.
Stir the cooked lentils, shredded cabbage, and 1/4 cup Pepper or Garlic Vinaigrette into the skillet. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more or until the cabbage is wilted and the mixture is heated through, stirring once.
To serve, line 2 individual plates with purple kale, cabbage, or lettuce leaves. Spoon slaw mixture on top. If desired, pass additional vinaigrette. Makes 2 servings.
Menu Idea:
Accent this hot and hearty slaw with crusty whole wheat rolls or slices of whole wheat bread.
