A good-quality, at least slightly hot mustard from France, Germany, or England is the perfect accompaniment for this. Put a dollop on your plate and dip each forkful into it.
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 carrots, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise into 3/4-inch pieces
1 pound lentils (about 2 1/3 cups)
1 quart water
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 pound smoked sausage, cut diagonally into 3/4-inch slices
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Lentils with Smoked Sausage and Carrots Recipe at
In a large saucepan, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion, garlic, and carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the lentils, water, salt, bay leaf, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer, partially covered, until the lentils are almost tender, about 20 minutes. Discard the bay leaf.

Stir in the smoked sausage and parsley. Cook until the lentils are just tender but not falling apart and the sausage is warm, about 10 minutes longer.

Cooking Lentils:

Because salt retards the cooking of legumes, the general wisdom is not to add it until they're almost done. Lentils, however, tend to overcook and fall apart all too quickly, so we put the salt in at the outset.

Excelent soup!
Is thick and rich, almost like a stew. I used chicken broth instead of water and kielbasa for the sausage. It was a success and I will definately will cook it again, specialy in the cold season. Thank you very much for posting.
