“This is a great soup to have during cold winter months, although it's wonderful anytime of year! It's loaded with fresh veggies and has a hearty flavor anyone will enjoy! Add additional root veggies like carrots if you like.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook the bacon just until it starts to brown a bit, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the olive oil, onion, and bell pepper; cook and stir until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, sausage, and bay leaf; cook about 4 minutes. Add lentils and water (water should be about an inch deeper than the level of the lentils). Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, until lentils are just cooked, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Put the potatoes into the soup and continue simmering until potatoes are cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.

With crusty bread and a tossed salad, this is a great quick dinner. Next time I'd use chicken broth instead of water. I seasoned with some smoky paprika as the bay leaf just wasn't enough. I didn't soak the lentils overnight, just 15 minutes before I cooked them. Took a bit longer, but not much. I like the quickness of this recipe and will make it again with additional seasonings.

I enjoyed this recipe very much. Although I did doctor it up a bit like abuela would. I used chicken broth instead of water, added some baby carrots at the same time as the potatoes, and also used a couple smoked ham hoaxs for more flavor. It was a hit that even got Nana's approval. Good recipe to start though.

With the addition of about a tsp. each of salt, cumin, and red pepper flakes, it was flavorful enough to not be bland but still nothing spectacular on it's own. 2 out of 5 family members would eat it. My husband said never make it again.
