A hardy and filling soup thats high in flavor and diabetic friendly
"This soup turned out so good! Savory, filling, and delicious - it was just what I was craving. I ended up using regular canned diced tomatoes instead of stewed. . I didn't want them pre-flavored, which is how stewed tomatoes are prepared. I also had to add another cup to 2 cups of water as the soup gets very thick. Some people like that - I happen to like a good balance of broth, veg, and meat. Sprinkled some pecorino on today's lunch portion. Out of this world yummy!"- dinerb

1. Put the sausages in a soup pan with the olive oil; brown on all sides over medium heat. Cover the pan and cook, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes, or until cooked through. Pierce the sausages and let them drain a bit in the pan, then remove and set aside. When cool enough to handle, cut into thin slices.
2. Put the onion, garlic and carrot into the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook 10 minutes, stirring often. Add the lentils, broth, water, tomatoes, thyme and rosemary. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes.
3. Add the potatoes and continue cooking the soup, covered, at least 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.
4. Stir in the sausage. Cook, uncovered, 10 minutes. Add 3 cups of greens and cook and additional 5 minutes.
5. Adjust seasoning with salt and red pepper flakes to taste.
Serve garnished with a garnish of greens on top.
I made sourdough garlic bread with this and it was delicious.

Madoosie 1 year agoThis recipe was amazing. Being that I am from wi I used brats instead of the italian sausage and also used fresh baby spinach (removed stems) instead of the greens. I chose this recipe over many others due to the fact that the ingredients are basic, nothing fancy. The results were amazing.

KitschyKitchen 1 year agoVery good soup & fairly quick & easy. You could easily sub spinach for the kale. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving!
Sunranger 1 year agoGood one! I used reg beef sausages and it was great.
AggieTuba1 1 year agoWow! Probably the best soup I've made so far (in my amateur experimentation). I recommend red kale and Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage. The kale stays slightly crunchy and pairs perfectly with the slight sweetness of the sausage. I also used tomatoes that had been stewed in basil and oregano. Fabulous! I wish I had doubled the batch.
Mountnveiw 1 year agoThis is an excellent soup. Made it just the way it was.
Carolynanne 1 year agoI used a combination of normal and spicy Italian sausage. Soooo good!!! Definitely need to do this one again
Casta 2 years agoWith spinach taste super, if using fresh spinach will have to add at the very last minute literally.
lorimarsh 2 years agoVery hearty, great for a cold day.
harpo78 2 years agobest lentil soup ever
lucretiacmt 2 years agoVery good. Seemed like a lot of water but it all absorbed into the lentils to make a thick plate of goodness. A good crusty bread would go well with this. I used spicy italian sausage.
Maciej187 2 years agoExcellent recipe I really enjoyed it, my sister loved it too.
Nanitas 2 years agoI didn't like the sweetness of the Italian sausage too much, although it turned out pretty good, next time I will use smoked or Louisiana sausage instead.
