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

It's #latke season one and all! Happy #hannukah to you and yours. A #smallbatch of course. #audreycancook #latkelove I bought a fake tree and it's a Coast Redwood. Let the #decorating begin. #christmas in #California #christmastree #decorations #nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook
