Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200⁰C.

Step 2

Put about 3 or 4 tbsp olive oil, garlic, half of the thyme leaves, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix. Slice the ciabatta loaf – but don’t cut all the way through (leave the base intact). Spoon the garlic mixture in between the slices and over the top. Wrap the loaf in tin foil and bake in the oven for about 15 minutes. When done, keep warm.

Step 3

Put a few glugs of olive oil in a pan on medium to high heat. Pan fry the boerewors for 12 to 15 minutes until nicely browned and cooked through. Set aside and keep warm.

Step 4

Mix the vegetable stock granules in the boiling water.

Step 5

Put a few glugs of olive oil in another pan/saucepan on medium heat. Add the onions, carrots, celery, salt, pepper and remainder of the thyme. Cook for about 8 minutes until the vegetables have softened but are still a little crunchy. Now add the vegetable stock and lentils and heat through for a minute or two. Finally stir in the cream and simmer on low heat for a few minutes. Check seasoning and adjust if necessary.

Step 6

To serve, divide the sausages and baby potatoes between the plates. Add a serving of creamy lentil sauce on the side.
