Mushroom, Kielbasa, and Lentil Soup – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Soup is one of my favorite meals and whether it’s chilly outside, or it’s gearing up for warmer weather, a big pot of Mushroom, Kielbasa, and Lentil Soup will always make you smile.

One reason soup is so good is that it’s made with simple ingredients and when combined, taste so scrumptious together.  Lentil soup has always been something I enjoy — it gives me energy and makes me feel so satisfied.  In this recipe, I added mushrooms and Kielbasa along with some diced pancetta for meatier flavors.  The mushrooms also add a hardiness that pairs so nicely with earthy lentils and create the best balance in one bowl.

I served this soup hot out of the pot with a rustic roll and don’t forget — the leftovers make a marvelous lunch or another excellent dinner.
