Ingredients

    • Olive Oil
    • 1 medium chopped onion
    • 2 diced garlic cloves (1/4 cup)
    • 1 package Andouille Sausage
    • 1 pound chopped Ham
    • 2 packages Lentil Beans (See Note1)
    • 1 can Rotel Diced Tomatoes
    • 8 cups Water (See Note 2)
    • Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings
    • Dan Pastorini’s Garlic and Herb Seasonings
    • Jacobsen Chili Salt
    • Special Shit Seasonings (yes, that is the correct spice name)

Directions

    1. Put olive oil in the bottom of a large pot. Heat.
    2. Sauteé onion, garlic, andouille sausage, and ham.
    3. Add Spices. As the soup cooks, you can taste test and add spices to get it just the way you like it. (See Note 3)
    4. Add rotel diced tomatoes.
    5. Add 8 cups water. Stir. If the soup seems thick to you add a little more water. (See Note 2)
    6. Bring to a boil then lower heat and simmer 15 minutes.
    7. Taste test and add more seasonings as you see fit.

Note 1: If this is too much soup for you, simply use one lentil bean package. Use half the measurements Nonna used for the rest of the ingredients.

Note 2: Nonna used 8ish cups of water. However, if you read the package it will likely specify the amount of water needed. If you add the extra ingredients like Nonna did you’ll need more water. If you add too much water, just let the soup simmer longer. If you find the soup too thick, simply add more water.

Note 3: You could add carrots or celery as you desire. As always you can substitute Nonna’s favorite spices for your own and taste testing as you go is important to this recipe!
