Crazypotato98's Lentil and Sausage Stew

This dish is a cinch to make. It's also the perfect opportunity to test Calorie Count's Conversion Tool in the sidebar! Hmmm...grams to ounces? Click here for the nutrition facts as analyzed at Calorie Count!

Lentil and Sausage Stew


108 grams Collards or other greens
1 cup Lentils
8 cup Chicken Broth
224 grams Polish Sausage (or your favorite fresh sausage), cooked and sliced
1/4 Onions, chopped
1 clove Garlic, minced
3 cup Fresh or Frozen Broccoli
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil


saute garlic and onion in olive oil. Add chicken broth (or bouillon and water), lentils, and sliced sausage. Bring to a boil; add vegetables except greens and simmer until lentils are tender. Add collard greens at the end and let simmer a couple minutes.


Get creative with the vegetables for this soup!


  1. Nice recipe, but why GRAMS?

  2. she lives in Mexico and likely that's how she buys it there. Calorie Count has a great converter tool - there's a link to it here. If you have trouble with that there's tons of conversion places as well.

    It is a great recipe!

  3. I'm just guessing anyway, I'll ask her to respond to you in case I'm wrong.

  4. Janice is correct, in Mexico everything is measured in kilos, not pounds and ounces. But also when I use the CC recipe analyzer, it converts everything to grams anyway.

  5. One thing is missing: what kind of lentils. There is a variety of lentils in every better shop, so what kind goes into this stew? ;)

  6. crazypotato98 has asked me to respond to your question: "my shop sells only one kind, a coffee-colored lentil. The bag merely says “lentils” on it in Spanish."

    You are lucky that you have choices in lentils! If you find a particularly good one to use, do let me know so I can suggest it in her recipe.


  7. Italian chicken sausage would be really tasty with this recipe. I use it to replace regular sausage and it's great.

  8. was loving this up until I looked at the nutritional value. Sodium in out of this world!

    1. that's because crazypotato98 uses full sodium broth. You can easily reduce it by using no salt broth!
