Simple Cooking : Lentil Soup

I made this recipe last week and it was a huge hit with the family. Lentils are great source of nutrition and a staple in our home now.

You will need:
1 lb. dry lentil beans, rinsed and checked over for rocks & dirt
1 onion, diced
2 stalks of celery diced
15 oz . of stewed tomatoes, drained
2 tbsp. butter or your oil of choice
2 tsp. garlic powder (you can certainly use fresh minced!)
1/2 lb pepperoni, breakfast sausage or smoked sausage
4 cups of beef broth

Heat your butter or oil in a heavy bottomed pot. Add in the celery, tomatoes and your choice of meat. Saute over medium/high heat. Once it is done, add in onions & garlic powder. Then continue to saute until they are translucent. Add in lentils and broth & bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Checking often , adding more water (or broth) as needed to keep a soup consistency. Lentils should be soft within 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours. Enjoy!

    Scott and I are wanting to try this, but sweet child o’ mine, can I leave out the celery or replace it with something?
