Sausage~Lentil Soup

I haven't posted any recipes in awhile, so I thought I would share this hearty soup with everyone. It's filled with veggies and lentils which are high in fiber. It pairs well with a crusty loaf of bread or a light salad. In my house, it's usually both! It's simple to swap out the kielbasa for turkey sausage and omit the salt for a healthier version. It came from my friend Cathy B. and I don't have the original source. So if you recognize it please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.

Bon Appetite!
