Sausage Lentil Soup | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book

Updated on September 12, 2011

Here is another fall favorite from The Cupboard Drawer. Lentils provide a high protein, high fiber base for this soup. It’s a Croc pot recipe so you can do it in the morning before work and it’ll be ready warm you right to your bones when you get home from that hard day. Add a grilled cheese sandwich and it’s a real deal meal on a cold day or evening. If you are vegetarian you can leave out the sausage, and Beef Bouillon Granules and you will still have a tasty soup. I have also done this with leftover Chicken pulled off the bones, and Chicken Bouillon Granules. The great thing about using lentils is they absorb the flavors of the items they share the pot with increasing the flavor though and though.

If you like you can also cut the 5Cups of water down to approx 3 ½ cups, substitute Stew meat for the sausage (brown the meat in a frying pan first), and it becomes a tasty stew. However you choose to prepare it, Do Enjoy!
