This is my husband's favorite soup. :)
1 cup dry lentils
1 cup sliced carrots (about 2 medium)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tbs instant chicken bouillon granules
5 to 6 cups of water (or you can use about 3 to 4 cups of chicken stock)
1/2 tsp dried sage, crushed or 2tsp of snipped fresh sage
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
2 cloves of garlic, minced
6 oz fully cooked smoked sausage links, quartered lengthwise and sliced
In a large pot combine the lentils, carrots, celery, onion, bouillon granules, sage, ground pepper, garlic and water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes until vegetables are tender. Stir in sausage and simmer for another 25-30 minutes. Serve with grated Parmesan.
*add more water for thinner soup, add less water and simmer longer for thicker soup
makes about 8 - 1 cup servings - about 36 carbs per serving.
