Lutz’s Lentil Soup

I’ve been so blessed to have a partner that enjoys cooking as well. Lutz, my husband, has mastered the art of lentil soup. For those of you that love soup and eat lentils, this is it. I do believe it is all the rain on this RV trip that leads to our soup cravings, but it doesn’t need to be raining to eat this delicious, warm, spicy soup. Yes, spicy! Lutz likes his red pepper flakes and garlic 🙂

Lutz prefers to use meat with a bone so we get the morrow. He always keeps the skin on the potatoes as well. He says we need to eat more dirt to stay healthy! I’ve read that before, I guess he has too.

When we’re home in Germany, Lutz cooks this on the stove top in a soup pot for 3-4 hours. For the first hour, cook over medium heat, and then turn it down to low heat for the remaining time. When we’re camping and want to tour, we plug in the crockpot, set it on high to get it cooking and then turn it down to low and take off for the day. We can practically follow the smell back to our campsite. When we open the door…”bam”! What an aroma.
