DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  • When hot, add the carrots, onion, and celery; cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are just softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, sausage, and thyme; cook 1 minute.
  • Add the stock, bay leaves, and bring mixture to a simmer over high heat.
  • Stir in the lentils, then decrease heat, cover, and cook at a gently simmer until tender, about 50 minutes.
  • Remove and discard the bay leaves; remove the garlic pieces and transfer to food processor.
  • Using a slotted spoon, strain 1/2 cup solids from the soup and puree them with garlic pieces in a food processor.
  • Stir the pureed mixture into the pot; this will thicken the soup slightly.
  • Taste soup and season with salt, as needed.
  • To serve, ladle the soup into 6 serving bowls and sprinkle some parsley over each serving.
