Lentil Soup Goodness!

I snagged a recipe from Food Snob and tweaked it...a lot. Considering it was a vegan recipe that is now featuring sausage, I guess you could say I made a lot of changes. Here's the new recipe:

Yummy Lentil Soup

2 tsp. olive oil
1 large yellow onion
3 carrots (chopped)
3 stalks celery (chopped)
4 cloves garlic
1 lb. sausage
(fry until sausage is no longer pink and veggies are soft)

3 cans chicken broth (16 oz each)
2 cans tomatoes (i used italian herb) with juice
1 1/2 cups dried lentils
ground coriander to taste
black pepper to taste
2 bay leaves
(add fried mixture to these ingredients and simmer for 35-45 minutes)

**The soup is a tad salty, and I would recommend using no-salt-added broth OR no-salt-added tomatoes, unless you like a salty broth like I do. Also, I recommend using loose sausage and making little balls (like in italian wedding soup) instead of using little links like I did. The flavor is consistent either way, but the casing is not very pleasing to the eye. **

If you try it, please let me know what you think! Bon appetit!

I've never had lentils and liked them. I have a recipe for a lentil-tomato pasta sauce that I have the crap for but am avoiding because I'm a chicken shit. One of these days I'll be brave. But not today.
