Just threw it together one evening and it was a smokey delight. Has great flavor and is even better the next day. Has a split pea-like soup texture, and the andouille gives it a nice little kick. You can use kielbasa instead if andouille is too spicy. Or, for a little less heat, use chorizo.

So glad I tried something new, this was delicious! I used raw Andouille, so I started off by crumbling and browning the sausage, then removing it from the pot. I like a lot of veggies, so I sauteed some onions, carrots and celery, then added the lentils, chicken stock and spices to the pot. (didn't have turmeric, so I skipped it) I let it boil, then simmered until the lentils were softening and added the sausage back in. When the lentils were done I stirred in the mushrooms. I can't believe how well all of these flavors went together, thank you for sharing. Read More

This soup is excellent. You can add things if you like (carrots, onions, garlic, celery, bay leaf) but not necessary to do so. I have made this with chorizo when I didn’t have andouille on hand. My husband says this is his favorite soup that I make. Great recipe! Thanks for posting it. Read More

I had chicken Andouille sausage which wasn't spicy enough. Next time I will use my usual hot Andouille sausage. Added some cayenne for heat. Will make this again. Enjoyed the soup! Read More
