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!
