Lentil Soup with Smoked Turkey

A meal in itself. The addition of some smoked turkey gives this soup a flavor that can’t be beat! Purchase smoked turkey breast already cooked; it freezes well.

2 cups (510g) lentils, uncooked
10 cups (2.5L) water
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery
2 medium red potatoes, cut in chunks
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp (1g) dried sage
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp (3g) salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
1/2 tsp (2g) black pepper
8 ounces (230g) smoked turkey breast, cut in 1-inch (2.5cm) pieces

1. Combine all ingredients except turkey breast in a large soup pot.

2. Bring to a boil, and turn down to simmer. Cook, covered for about 30 minutes.

3. Add turkey pieces and cook for about 15 minutes more, until the flavors have mingled and the turkey breast is thoroughly heated through.
