finely shredded green cabbage
vegetarian smoked sausages, diced
1 (16 ounce) can
salt and pepper to taste
Throw everything into a crock pot. That's what I did and it came out wonderful. The only only only difference is that I used 6 cups of chicken stock vs the 4 cups water and 2 bouillon cubes and 2 cups of shredded cabbage. We came home to delicious hearty soup thick soup. P.S I didn't even saute anything ahead of time.
I thought the cayenne pepper overpowered the soup; I would use half as much if I made this soup again. I would definitely add more cabbage too. I used turkey kielbasa sausage instead of vegetarian, but doubt that altered the taste much. I have made many lentil soups and find this one to be very ordinary, so I am unlikely to make it again.
I used turkey smoked sausage and didn't have head cabbage, but used a portion of a bag of 3-color slaw I had (which is mostly shredded cabbage anyway). I used half the cayenne and it was still plenty spicy for my taste and petite diced tomatoes. Hearty, good soup...I will make this again.
Yummy! We varied this a bit, though. We used 4 cups of chicken stock, Healthy Choice smoked sausage, and cut the cayenne down to 1/4 tsp. Great soup for a chilly winter day and so easy to make!
I've looked for a favorite lentil soup recipe for years and this is it! I use 4 Boca Smoked Sausages browned in a little oil and thinly sliced, and I add a little more cabbage. Delicious!
Fantastic recipe to use as a guide; easy to customize. A keeper! I suggest eliminating the boullion cubes. Use instead 4 cups of broth as a substitute for the cubes and water... it works wonderfully. If you don't care about it being vegetarian, I suggest using (Mexican) chorizo sausage in place of vegetarian "sausage" (another hideously artifical invention). Chorizo worked great (cook it first and add at the end) and made it super spicy! If you want vegetarian soup, add an extra cup of onion for body and leave out the veggie sausage.
WOW!!!! This might be my new favorite soup! It's a toss up between Italian Sausage Soup and this one. My soup hating husband even said he'd try it next time I made it because it smelled so good! The only change I made was to use kielbasa instead of the vegetarian sausage. Delicious!
Loved this recipe!! Received this in my inbox yesterday morning, went to the store at lunch, ran home put everything in the crock pot, turned it on high, had hot soup ready when I got have from work!!
