This is an adaptation of 2 or 3 other similar soups but is my favorite obviously. Not at all difficult to make and goes very well with low fat cornbread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown sausage; drain off fat.
  2. In a large pot combine all ingredients bring to boil.
  3. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 1 hour or until lentils are tender. Add water if necessary, for desired consistency. I like to puree about 1 cup of the soup and add back to pot to give it a thicker consistency.
  4. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.

Not so good... Lentils left an after taste and I couldn't figure out how to fix it.
