Yes, all of my kids love this soup. Even the youngest ones.
Put some GF Tostitos in the bottom of the bowl for a crunchy surprise.
In a large soup pan, crumble and brown the sausage in 1 T olive oil. Be sure to cook it all the way through. Set aside on paper towels to drain.
Add a little more olive oil and sauté the onions and garlic until soft - about 3 minutes.
Add the liquid (you can use all stock and no water, but that flavor is a little overwhelming for my kids. They prefer the stock/water combination).
Next add all of the remaining ingredients except the reserved sausage - add the lentils, carrots, celery, potatoes, parsley, bay leaf, basil, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and oregano.
Bring to a boil then cover and simmer on low for 1 1/4 hours or more. Add the sausage. Check your seasonings and add more salt or pepper as desired. Cook another 30 minutes or so until lentils are done.
