Sausage Lentil Soup – Wait. What’s a Lentil?

Sausage lentil soup is a quick and easy dinner to make and it’s hearty and filling enough to be eaten as a meal on its own.
Sausage Lentil Soup Recipe \\ PassTheSushi.comAs I have mentioned in the past, blogging here on Pass the Sushi has introduced me to some new and interesting things.

It has also introduced me to some pretty basic things as well, like lentils. Going into today’s recipe for lentil soup, I had no idea what lentils were or even what they tasted like. I didn’t Google “what’s a lentil?” or research what I was getting into, I just grabbed a bag of lentils from the shelf at the market and set out to make Ina Garten’s recipe for sausage lentil soup with them. I’m daring like that.

At the dinner table, Handsome asked me what a lentil was. I politely told him I had no clue. When asked what the back up plan was, I replied that I didn’t have one.

Thankfully, dinner was delicious.

Ha - well, I didn't know what lentils were for the longest time, either! But it certainly looks like you've done them properly; wow.
