Sage Ham and Spanish Lentils Soup
This is similar to the split pea just a different legumes!
We also get our Spanish lentils from Palouse Brand of Amazon! Again, we get nothing from Amazon or Palouse Brand from advertising their product. We simply love the quality and how local they are! They come in 5 pounds or more, initially, I was overwhelmed with the idea of having 5 pounds of lentils but rest assured, it really is not that much.
2 cups of lentils
4 quarts of broth
2 medium potatoes (finely diced)
1 small onion (finely diced)
2 carrots (finely diced)
Ham (diced) about a cup
Sage powder or a few fresh sprigs
Salt/Pepper to taste
In your soup pan, saute onions, carrots and ham, add broth, lentils, potatoes and sage. Cook until lentils are tender (but not falling apart)…voila dinner is done! Garnish with Parmesan cheese and devour. Easy, hearty and delicious!
