Sausage & Kale Lentil Soup and Parmesan Skillet Rolls--My first Soup & Homemade Rolls for Fall

It's a very strange weather pattern we're experiencing in Monterey, California.  Yesterday, it was overcast and muggy.  Today, the skies were gloomy and I had a craving for soup.  I was also craving fresh bread to go with the soup.  I love lentil soup, and I especially love it when it's paired with sausage.  So, I grabbed my soup "Holy Trinity" of one onion, carrots and celery and speed chopped them with my food processor.  I have plenty of homemade chicken stock in the freezer and then I just started grabbing what I could find in my pantry. What I didn't  grab was my camera.  I figured that there are plenty of lentil soup recipes on blogs and so I just started creating a soup.  As a result, this time, there aren't my usual step-by-step photos on how to make this soup.  I decided to make our favorite Buttered Rosemary Rolls because they are easy to make and don't take a lot of time.  At the last minute, I decided to use Parmesan Cheese, instead. 

These smelled so good, that I decided to grab my camera after all, so I could share it with you.

I'm so glad that I adapted the Buttered Rosemary Rolls with Parmesan Cheese. They were wonderful!  My son was happy, because he doesn't care for Rosemary.  By garnishing the lentil soup with a little Parmesan, my family had a hearty and comforting meal that was perfect for Fall weather.

Heaven help me, these are good!


From what I hear, we are supposed to have a heat wave next week.  Sigh.  That means my Weber will be back in action.  I surprised myself, at how delicious my concoctions turned out!  So here ya go...the printable recipes cards are below.  That is, if you'd like to make either (or both) of these recipes.  If you would like a step-by-step on making the rolls, click here.


I am submitting this post to Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for her Souper Sunday weekly roundup of recipes of bloggers who make soups, sandwiches or salads.  It looks like my soup kettle is back in business again!

Enjoy!

Oh my lord I need those rolls! I can almost taste them...or at least my imagination thinks I can.

I see someone is submitting to fall's prowess with this soup. Looks fantastic!

Kim said...

Oh Debby! I also have a soft spot for lentils and those rolls...I would have to have at least two:)

P.S. My hubby doesn't care for rosemary either. Do you think it's a man thing?

Cathy said...

That's a perfect fall meal, Debby. When the days cool off I want hot soup and bread. Lentil is my favorite and those rolls...so good.

I'm getting in the mood for autumn fare too, Debby, but it is still in the 90's here . . . just crazy hot. But your soup and rolls look so comforting!

Sausage, kale and lentils are such a great combination and those rolls look amazing too. Thanks for sending it to Souper Sundays. Hope to see you back with more soups. ;-)

I can just smell that buttery aroma with the flavor of rosemary! I'm tried making lentil soup with kale, and I think I need to let the kale simmer longer. I'm going to check out your recipe.

Debbie, the soup and rolls are perfect for the weather we are having in Oregon. The rolls have set my mouth to watering :-) You have no idea how much I love bread. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
