Who on earth makes homemade sausages? Maybe you – because you won't find such super-lean, heart-smart sausages in the supermarket and they take only minutes to prepare. Lentils, with their high fibre content, are a healthy – and traditional – partner for Italian sausages.
The sausages can be made the day before and refrigerated.
Boost the fibre content of this and other minced meat mixtures by using wholegrain bread as a filler. Look for breads that contain at least 3g of fibre per slice.
