bulk pork sausage
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
1 (28 ounce) can
1 (16 ounce) package
dry lentils, rinsed
celery, finely chopped
chopped fresh parsley
salt to taste
1 1/2 cups
The ingredients are way too much to fit in a crockpot. I used half the water and was right to top of crockpot. Cooked on high for about 5 hrs then tranferred to stock pot on top of stove to add cabbage and rest of watsr. Flavor a bit bland, needs something else. If I make it again, I'll do 1/2 the recipe and make some other changes.
After three hours in the Crockpot on HIGH, the lentils were still hard. Removed the soup to finish cooking on top of the stove. This recipe is way off! The lentils soaked up too much of the broth! Suggest using half (8 oz) of lentils and Italian sausage for more flavor.
3.5 stars on this. First off, I adjusted the servings to 4 so that made a big difference; we had plenty for dinner and a night of leftover. Overall it was not bad - took longer than 4 hours - I cooked it on low about 5. I made a few other changes: I used sweet italian turkey sausage. Used 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp garlic powder, a bit more fresh parsley and fresh rosemary and napa cabbage. Should have added more salt but that is easily added at the table. My daughter loved it and the bf liked it alot but for me it was missing something. I added fresh parsley and shredded parmesan cheese on top when serving.
This soup was good. I used Aidells chicken apple sausage because I'm trying to follow a specific diet that doesn't allow regular pork sausage. Had I used to pork sausage it may have been a little more flavorful. However, If I make it again I will probably use a little less water and less lentils. A 16 oz bag is a LOT of lentils. I would also add more sausage. Overall a good soup.
Mine came out more like stew than soup and I'm not sure why. I followed the recipe exactly. None the less, I am happy with the consistency. Finished product was a bit bland for us but was improved with additions of liquid smoke, garlic, salt, pepper.
