The Perfect Fall Soup

This is a perfect Fall soup. It’s hearty without being too heavy. The broth is delicate and light, but packed with flavor from the garlic, smoked paprika and umami spices. I used Linguica, a Portuguese sausage flavored with paprika and garlic, but feel free to use what you have on hand or can get at your grocery store.



Linguica Lentil Soup Recipe

  • 1 lb Linguica, diced

  • 1-2 Medium Onions, diced

  • 2-4 Garlic Cloves, minced

  • Smoked Paprika

  • Umami Spice

  • Salt & Pepper

  • 2 Bell Peppers, diced

  • 6-8 Carrots, diced


In heavy bottom soup pan over medium heat, saute linguica until lightly crispy. Add onions and garlic, saute until soft. Add spices, and saute until fragrant. Add peppers and carrots, mix well to coat with spices and lightly saute.


  • 2-3 C Lentils, rinsed

  • 8-10 C Broth or Stock


Add lentils and stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until lentils are cooked and soft.


Toppings You Can Serve With The Soup

Spinach, chopped

Avocado, diced

Cilantro, minced

Scallions, diced

Feta Cheese, cubed


Serve soup, put a handful of spinach in the bowl, spoon the soup over the top to lightly wilt the spinach. Then top with avocado, cilantro, scallions, and cheese. And Enjoy!
