Lentil Soup With Kielbasa

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Expat in Holland

Originally my mother's recipe for lentil soup. I have tweaked it a bit through the years. It can easily be made with or without the kielbasa. This is a nice hearty soup for a cold winter night.

I don't beleive i haven't rated this yet. I've made it so many times, and passed the recipe out even more!! Everyone loves it and it's so filling. It's great on it's own but i usually serve with rye bread & salad. Freezes great just when freezing don't add the noodles. I always add the noodles to the bowl, we don't care for mushy noodles. Thanks for the great,& easy soup.
