Crock Pot Lentil and Sausage Soup


1 cup uncooked lentils
1/2 lb turkey kielbasa, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cup onion, chopped
1 cup celery, chopped
1 cup carrot, finely chopped
1 cup potato, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 (16 ounce) cans low sodium beef broth
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


1. Rinse lentils and drain

2. Place all ingredients in crock pot

3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours (depending on crock pot temperature). Stirring occasionally.

Yum! I found this recipe on RecipeZaar and it is now a staple. I tweaked a few things to make it a little healthier and the flavor doesn't suffer one bit. It makes the house smell amazing too!

The best thing to go with this is some homemade bread and butter and even a dash of sour cream if you'd like. Perfect fall and winter soup. :)
