Perfect for when it's cold out! I just made this with ingredients I had on hand, and it turned out delicious. It was so easy! I don't usually measure herbs and spices, but I am pretty heavy handed with them. Do it to your tastes, but generally with peppers I add about a half a teaspoon to start.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Spray a dutch oven or large stock pot with cooking spray. Add onions, garlic and sausage. Break up sausage with wooden spoon while sausage browns. Drain off fat.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. You don't even need to defrost the spinach. Bring to a simmer, cook till lentils are soft, about 1 hour.

This is a very nice soup. I used a whole pound of lentils (rather than 12 ounces), and fresh spinach. I will make it again, and play around with some of the vegetables and spices. But a really great place to start. Thanks!
