  1. Bring lentils and vegetable broth to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic, onion, celery, and sausage; cook and stir until the sausage is crumbly and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, turmeric, cumin, thyme, and red pepper flakes; cook 5 minutes more.
  3. Stir the sausage mixture into the simmering lentils. Continue simmering until the lentils are tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt. Garnish each serving with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped parsley to serve.

I thought this was a really nice recipe. I am not a big fan of pork sausage, but I did like the turkey sausage. I omitted the celery as I also don't care for celery. And I cut down on the gar...

My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. It was hearty enough without being overly heavy and the flavor was good, but not too strong. I made the recipe without any modifications and I would ...

We LOVED this recipe. I made it for my husband and I thinking my kids wouldn't eat it, but they and their friends all had seconds and thirds!

This was very, very good. I only had one cup of Lentils so I added a cup of split green peas. This was a great addition. I also used only 1 quarts broth instead of2 to get a thicker chili. ...

Good base, needed a bit more spice in my opinion, but will make again.

Loved it. I chopped up two red bell peppers and added them to the vegetables and they added a delicious flavor.

I didn't have any turkey sausage, so I used some grilled chicken breasts instead. The chili was a hit at my school's chili cookoff!

A favorite of mine - make it at least once a month. Healthy, tasty, etc. I do add more spices as other reviewers recommended.
