This is a wonderfully flavored soup that our whole family really enjoyed. I'm a huge fan of traditional Turkish Red Lentil soup which has more exotic flavors, but I was impressed by the down home goodness of this soup. I had three medium sized helpings, and even then I nibbled a bit more as I was putting the remainder into the tupperware. We doubled the recipe, so I can go to sleep now knowing it will taste even better tomorrow when I reheat it!

  3. Warm the remaining olive oil. Add the sausage, remaining onion, celery and thyme and saute over medium high heat, breaking up sausage, until onion is soft and sausage begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the rice and lentils.
  4. Add the chicken stock, tomatoes with juice, bay leaf, garlic and paprika and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until rice and lentils are tender, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Stir in the spinach until wilted. Season to taste with black pepper and remaining balsamic vinegar. Ladle into bowls and serve topped with onions.

    This was fantastic! I had some today (day after making) for the first time as I was out to dinner last night with friends, and it was amazingly flavorful. If you like lentil soup, this is a must try!

          I made this last week and it was really good. As we were talking over dinner, my husband stopped in mid-sentence and commented on how much he liked the soup! I wouldn't hesitate to serve this to company with a nice crusty bread.

              I love soups, especially with legumes, beans etc. I had never used lentils up until a couple of years ago, until I bought a bean mix that had lentils. Now they are a staple in my kitchen. I am going to make a double batch of this and freeze some!
