Lentil Soup with a twist

Lentil soup, Linsen suppe

Once a week I cook a broth with chicken pieces for our doggies, so it has a little different twist. I cook it in a Dutch Oven my daughter gave me for Christmas. There is enough broth left for me to make a wholesome Lentil soup, perfect for a cold Winter day

Lentil Soup with a twist

Lentil Soup with a twist
Category: Soup
Cuisine: German
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

At the end of the cooking time I season the soup with salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce, wine vinegar, and some wine. That gives it a special kick.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup baby carrots, cut in half
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 4 gloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes
  • 2 medium peeled potatoes cut in half (if soup is blended)
  • 5 cups chicken broth/vegetable broth (with chicken pieces, 5 cups water instead)
  • 1 to 1.5 cups dry lentils (depending how thick you want it)
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp wine (optional)

Instructions

  • Sear salted chicken pieces and first four vegetables in olive oil. Add stewed tomatoes, lentils and 6 cups water. Boil for 70 minutes
  • At the end of the cooking time I season the soup with salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce, wine vinegar, and some wine. That gives it a special kick

Notes

Optional: Can be be cooked with 2 medium boiled potatoes. After 1.5 hours mix contents in a blender, then return to Pot and season. It should be thick enough. Instant Pot: Sear chicken thighs and add vegetables, water and a can of tomatoes. Add dry Lentils. Cook on high pressure with the chicken pieces 10 or 15 minutes with bones, then natural release for 10 minutes. Season at the end

Lentil soup for my dogs

Sheltie Max left, rescue Cooper in the middle, and big sister Josie love my home cooking

My suggestion if you have dogs Separate half of the unseasoned soup and de-bone the chicken. It will be later mixed in with their regular dog food.
