Throughout Germany, Lentil Soup has achieved the status of soul food. In this soup recipe, vegetables and smoked ribs enhance the flavor.
It is in the tradition of the ten thousand year history of the lentil, a number one protein supplier that has always been the determination of the star among legumes from a nutritional point of view.
The Wiener Wurst with the lentils is owned to the Swabian, and like the ribs, is becoming increasingly unpopular. A young and clever generation is rediscovering the lentil as an alternative protein source for meatless happiness
Once a week I cook a broth with chicken pieces for our doggies, so it has a little different twist. I used a Dutch Oven before, but graduated to the Instant Pot, see both recipes below. There is enough broth for all of us for a wholesome Lentil soup. Perfect comfort food for a cold and rainy day
