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!"
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.

Keleynal 1m agoI love the hearty flavor of this soup and find it to be more balanced in flavor than many lentil based recipes (i.e. Not as strongly lentil flavored). Very filling and easy to make.
lacarocarocarolina 5m agoThank you! This has become my go to winter warmer. So quick and easy!
Valerie411 1y agoVery tasty and easy to make!
Gail57 1y agoLove it. I use really healthy chicken Italian sausage
jenbacon 1y agoOne of my favorites. I use Andouille sausage - less than the recipe calls for - and add a dash of red wine vinegar.
KathyU_01096 1y agoI love this recipe, and have made it several times with variations. I used smoked chicken sausage and some boneless breast of chicken, and used a tsp each of fresh oregano, rosemary, and thyme. I cut the cayenne to 1/8 tsp since my hubby is sensitive to hot foods.
maevankayt 1y agovery good! definitely better the next day once the flavours have had more time to blend
mtlindquist73 1y agoFor some reason, we just did not love this soup. It has wonderful ingredients in it. It just did not have a flavor that we preferred.
Kirthana 1y agoLove this- filling and healthy. For convenience, I use Italian seasoning (dried) and a bay leaf instead of the suggested herbs. I used turkey sausage the last time I made this and it still tasted great!
cassysim 2y agoThis is one of my new go to dishes. Excellent!
