I’ve been hooked on Trader Joe’s steamed lentils. So versatile. It was late one evening and I was craving soup. This took 30 minutes. If that.
Started with browning the sausage. Then add the celery to cook down for a few minutes.
Add the carrots, continue to cook down.
Next add onions, red pepper, salt, pepper, parsley, oregano, thyme and garlic.
Add one container of chicken broth. Mine was 16 ounces. One 14 ounce can of diced tomato. Bring to a boil then turn to simmer. Simmer 20 minutes.
Add the lentils and cook ten minutes. I served with some parmesan cheese on top.
