Italian Lentil & Sausage Soup Recipe

Italian Lentil & Sausage Soup Recipe - House & Home

Dress up this sausage potage with other fresh herbs, like finely shredded basil, chopped oregano or chopped chives.

4 servings

1 onion, diced
1 carrot, peeled and diced
1 stalk celery, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
2 sweet or hot Italian sausages, casings removed and meat crumbled
1 clove garlic, minced or finely chopped
6 cups chicken stock
2 tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 potato, peeled and diced
1/2 cup green lentils, rinsed
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley


Step 1: In a large pot over medium heat, sauté the onion, carrot and celery in the oil, until the onion is softened.

Step 2: Add the crumbled sausage meat and the garlic. Sauté until the sausage is half-cooked.

Step 3: Add the stock, tomatoes, potato and lentils. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low.

Step 4: Simmer, uncovered, until the lentils are tender, about 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5: Ladle up a thick and chunky bowlful, and garnish with a playful scattering of parsley.
