1. Heat the oil in a wide non-stick pan, then sizzle the sausages, soffritto and most of the thyme for 10 minutes until the sausages are golden and the vegetables are softening. Preheat the grill to high.
2. Stir in the stock, tomatoes, lentils and beans. Cover, with lid ajar, and simmer for 8 minutes. Add the greens and cook for a further 2 minutes until the vegetables are soft. Add a splash of water if needed and season.
3. Scatter the breadcrumbs over the sausages and beans. Season, then grill for 3 minutes or until golden. Scatter with more thyme leaves to serve. Enjoy with a dressed green salad.
Cook’s tip For a Spanish-inspired one pot, change the beans for chick peas and add hot smoked paprika. Leave out the breadcrumbs and finish with flat leaf parsley.
