French-style Lentil Stew

October 6, 2010 at 10:55 am 1 comment

1 package dry lentils
6 links sweet Italian sausage
4 slices bacon, diced (or approximately 6 inches of kielbasa, diced)
1 carrot, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups water
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, brown bacon
add vegetables and garlic and cook until translucent
add lentils, water, and sausage
cover and cook on stove top for 1 hour (I use a pressure cooker and it’s done in 30 minutes)

More water and seasonings may need to be added to get desired consistency and flavor

Don’t forget to remove the bay leaf
