Directions

  1. Rinse lentils thoroughly under cold running water (brown lentils don't need to be soaked b4 cooking).
  2. Heat oil in a lrg pan & gently fry onion for 5 min till soft. Add leek, carrot, celery, bacon & bay leaves.
  3. Add lentils & water to the pan & slowly bring to a boil. Skim the surface & simmer (half-covered) for 45-50 min or till the lentils are soft.
  4. Remove piece of bacon, cut into sml cubes (trimming off any excess fat) & return bacon cubes to the pot.
  5. Add parsley + frankfurter slices & season w/salt & pepper to taste pref. Simmer gently for 2-3 min, remove bay leaves & serve garnished w/the extra parsley.
  6. PERS NOTE: As I entered this recipe, I found myself wondering how the simmer time of 45-50 min might be adapted to crockpot use. If 1 among you is more practiced in this art, I'd appreciate that info. :-).
