      This was delicious!! I think it was the best lentil soup I have ever eaten. I used a package of Buffalo Guys Andouille Sausage and it is skinless, so it was just a matter of cutting them into chunks. I buy it at our local health food store, but I think it can also be purchased in larger grocery markets and on-line. Di, thanks for the fantastic recipe! I will be making it again!

      We loved this soup. I am always looking for different ways to prepare lentils because they are a favorite of mine. I hit the jackpot with this recipe. The andouille is spicy and it goes well with the lentils and other vegetables. The toasted fennel seeds also add a distinct and delicious flavor. A 5-star winner.

      Fantastic!! Everyone enjoyed this soup. The only addition I made was to add a little lemon juice. I used fat-free broths, and a little less thyme. The Andouille sausage I bought was a bit challenging to remove the casings from---good thing it was going to be chopped anyway---lol. This is the best lentil soup recipe I've ever tried, and it is the one I'll use from now on!
