3 slices bacon (optional but highly recommended)
1 leek, diced
2 carrots, diced
1 celery stick, diced
1/2 onion, diced
2 cups lentils (any variety)
6 cups stock or water
2 smoky pork sausages
1 Tbsp butter
Sea salt

Sauté bacon with a combination of leek, carrots, celery stick, and onion until soft and fragrant. Add lentils to the pan, cover with stock or water, and simmer until tender, about 40 minutes, depending on the variety. Taste often and add water, if needed. While the lentils cook, brown pork sausages in butter, add water, and cook through, covered. The sausages and soup will be finished at about the same time. Drain the water from the sausages and add them, sliced in rounds, to the soup pot. Season to taste with sea salt. Continue to cook until everything is tender and heated through, about 10 minutes.
