How to make it

  • Melt butter in a dutch oven
  • Toss in the sausage chunks and brown on all sides lightly
  • Add carrots, onions and celery, saute until fragrant and onions are translucent
  • Add about 6-8 cups of water
  • Add potatoes and lentils, bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer
  • Add herbs and spices, salt to taste.
  • Cook at least 2 hrs very slowly, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
  • If necessary, add some water.
  • The soup won't look very appealing in the first hour, once it develops flavor and lentils cook through, it will become beautiful.
  • When flavors blend well and soup becomes rich in color and taste, add minced garlic, simmer for about 10 more minutes.
  • Remove thyme sprigs and bay leaf at this point.
  • Remove from the heat, add vinegar and freshly chopped parsley.
  • Cover and let sit for a few minutes to finish the flavor development.
