Fry sausages in a large deep non-stick pan over a medium heat until nicely browned; remove from the pan and set aside. Fry the onions in the same pan that you cooked the sausages until soft. Add carrots and potatoes, with garlic, chillies (if used) and cumin, stir well.
Add tomatoes, lentils and vinegar plus one tin-full of water (I used the tomato tin for this). Crumble in the Oxo® cube, give a good stir.
Slice the sausages into bite size pieces and return to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in the kidney beans and continue to simmer gently until lentils are tender. Serve with fresh crusty bread!
Email me with any queries as I made this up myself, it did taste ok.
