Sausage and Lentil Soup

lentil soup

Before this year I was not a slow cooker kind of person.  I had one years before, but got rid of it due to me just not liking it.  I still don’t use it for everything like a lot of people seem to do, but I now do more than just let it sit.  Some soups take longer to cook, and this is one of them, so rather than be tied to the stove (or at least near it) for the day I decided to use my Crock Pot.  Sure glad I did!!!  The lentil soup I normally make has more of a curry flavor to it, but I had some lamb sausage that seemed like a good fit for this type, a good fit it was!!

For the Recipe:

2 tbsp. tomato past

1 tbsp. garlic powder

1 tbsp. salt

2 tsp. ground pepper

1 tsp. thyme

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (more if you want a bit more kick)

1 onion, chopped

1 carrots, chopped

1 ribs of celery, chopped

1 c. lentils (I used French lentils but any would work)

1/2 lb. sausage (I used lamb sausage, but any would work)

4 c. chicken stock

Place everything in the slow cooker, mix well and cook on low for 7-8 hours.  Yup, that about does it…
