Simple Sausage & Lentil Soup

This is a great stick-to-your-ribs soup that can be put together in less than an hour. The leftovers make great fare for lunches.
  • 2 c. red lentils
  • 6 c. water
  • 8 oz. smoked sausage, cut into small slices
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 carrots, halved and sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 bay leaf

Place all of the ingredients in the rice cooker. Cover and turn on the HIGH setting. Set a timer for 45 minutes.

When the timer sounds, check the soup for doneness. The vegetables should be soft. Adjust the seasonings as necessary and remove the bay leaf before serving.
