Lentil Soup with Sausage

This is one of those old recipes. It’s one that my mom gave me on a recipe card, tucked safely inside a wooden recipe box when I moved into my first house. It is a recipe she got from a friend of hers when I was about 5. Even though I know how to make this recipe I still take out the recipe card, just because. (yeah, I’m nostalgic like that)

Lentil Soup with Sausage

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 lb kielbasa (or similar sausage)
1 onion diced
1 tbsp diced garlic
a couple small potatoes diced small
1 cup dried lentils
1 tsp marjoram
1 large can diced tomatoes
swiss cheese (for garnish, but what makes it oh so good)

Here’s what you do:

Heat a little bit of oil in the bottom of a dutch oven.

Cut the kielbasa into rounds, and add to hot oil. Cook a few minutes until well browned on both sides.

Add diced onion and diced potato and garlic to the pot.

Cook for a few minutes until the onion is soft and clear.

Add lentils, marjoram and tomatoes.

Add 8-10 cups of water.

Let the pot come to a boil.

Lower heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until lentils are soft.

Ladle soup into a bowl and top with a slice of swiss cheese.

Enjoy your soup!
