    Jo Ann L's Note:

    If you like lentils, you should love this soup. I like it best with the smaller amount of stock, so it's nice and thick and rich.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      (Note on beef stock: I use about 9 cups of stock, which makes a very thick soup. If you like a thinner soup, add more water. Commercial stocks, such as Swanson's, have a stronger flavor, so no more than 8 c. of stock should be used; then add water if necessary).
    2. 2
      Shred carrots and sausage in a food processor.
    3. 3
      Combine all ingredients except the vinegar in a stockpot. A 4-quart pot will be fine for 9 cups of stock; if you use more than that, you will need to go to a 5-quart or 6-quart pot.
    4. 4
      Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 1 1/2 hours, or until lentils are soft.
    5. 5
      Add vinegar and stir well.
    6. 6
      With 9 cups of stock, makes about 6 2-cup servings.
    7. 7
      Like most soups, this reheats very well, and becuase there is virtually no fat in it, it can even be frozen.

      DELICIOUS I had to cut it down to a third as I was cooking for one but it came out beautifully. 2 very small changes. I cut the sausage into 1/4 julianne and used roasted rather than regular garlic. also Grilled some bread for the soppin. A fantastic meal for a gloomy Sunday.
