Directions

  1. In a large pot over medium high heat, combine the oil, bacon, carrots, onions and celery. Saute for 5 minutes, or until bacon is crisp. Stir in the flour until it's dissolved and mixture is pasty.
  2. Slowly add the water, stirring constantly. Then add the bay leaves, salt, lentils, beef base, thyme, nutmeg, white pepper and potatoes. Stir all together well, bring just to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 3 hours.

I would have given this 5 stars, but went with 4 because it needed to be tweaked. Add extra carrots, lentils and potatoes, reduce flour to 1/2 c. and liquid to 3 Qts. and omit the olive oil and bouillion and you'll end up with a much heartier and healthier soup! Be sure to cook on low, low heat and stir often. I also used chicken broth for 2 qts. of the liquid and salted to taste after cooking because I wasn't sure how salty my bacon was. I'm not a big fan of thyme and 1/2 tsp was enough for me. I also used a teaspoon each of powdered onion and garlic, no fresh. Guess that was alot of tweaking....

I doubled the amount of lentils and tripled the amount of potatoes and there was still plenty of broth to handle the increase. This soup is very tasty, but at almost 13grams of fat per serving (that is 50% fat!), I would hardly call it "healthy" despite the healthy lentil and vegetable ingredients. For this reason, I decreased the bacon to 4 slices and added only 1 teaspoon of olive oil, instead of the 4 tablespoons called for. I still found the soup to be rich and tasty.

Did not care for the flour - soup tended to stick and needed constant attention while simmering - I prefer to add cornstarch to thicken at the end of cooking time.
