My dutch oven runneth over (Sausage and Lentil Soup)

04

Maybe not quite…but almost. Clearly I should have used my big 8 qt. stockpot, but I just love my dutch oven so much I didn’t even think twice about how enough soup for an army would fit into it.

Talk about a soup that eats like a meal! Despite that this soup’s only accompaniment was some garlic and herb bread, my husband could barely finish half his (admittedly large) bowl because he got stuffed to the  gills.

I was originally going to make Ina’s lentil sausage soup, but I didn’t have a few things (leeks, green lentils) and had some other things (regular brown lentils, a potato). I saw a lentil soup with sausage and potato recipe in my Joy of Cooking book, so the recipe below is essentially a mixture of those two recipes.

I ended up freezing about a quart of this soup and hopefully we can manage to make it through the rest this week for lunch, etc.

  • OMG- made this last night- you’re not joking about feeding an army. My 6’9″ boyfriend who can really house food was full after two bowls. This was probably the best soup I’ve ever made at home. High five on this awesome recipe, I will be making this again, when my leftovers run out in 2013. Thanks!!!

    I’ll be doing a recipe review of this for sure on my blog- I’ll let you know when I do!!!

      • Just had this for dinner– second the love! I doubled the veggies and used a little less kielbasa. Very tasty (and enjoyed having a glass of wine with dinner since I had to open a bottle.)
