    2 14-oz cans reduced sodium chicken broth (because the sausage is so salty, it really is advisable to stick with reduced-sodium)
    1 1/2 cups water
    1 cup brown lentils, rinsed and drained
    1 cup sliced celery (2 stalks)
    1 cup sliced carrot (2 medium)
    1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
    1 teaspon snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I threw a little extra in - we like it spicy)
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    8 oz. cooked smoked sausage links, quartered lengthwise and sliced


In a large saucepan (we used a small pot) combine broth, water, lentils, celery, carrot, onion, dried thyme (if using), cayenne pepper and garlic. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 20-25 minutes or until vegetables and lentils are tender. Stir in sausage and, if using, fresh thyme. Heat through.
