How to make it

  • Combine the oil, bacon, celery, carrots, and onions. Place them in a large pot, over a medium high heat then saute for 5 minutes, or until bacon becomes crisp. Mix in the flour until it's dissolved and creates a paste-like consistency.
  • Gradually add the water, stirring frequently. Now, add the lentils, potatoes, beef base, bay leaves, nutmeg, white pepper, thyme, and salt. Combine well, and allow the mixture to come just to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3 hours the serve.

    I made this tonight and my dad pronounced it "really good". It is very tasty. :) I like the bacon and the flour for thickening. Wouldn't have thought of that.

    10 gallon,Rheinlander is a Portland OR restaurant opened by Horst Mager in 1963, he built a small empire of themed restaurants here in Portland, L'Omellette, Couch Street Fish House, Chataeu La France, Odyssey, Little Blarney Castle, and Tivoli Garden. All were special elegent but comfortable places. For some reason he sold or lost most of them by the early 1990's (still a 30 year run). The Rheinlander and "Gustavs" are still in operation under the misguided guidance of his heirs, they are run as "stores" or "Units" and are a mere ghost of what Horst had created.

    Sounds good.. although I haven't tried it yet. I am more curious why it is called Rhinelander Lentil Soup? Is there a significance to the name?
