Linsensuppe Mit Frankfurter
(Lentil Soup with Frankfurters)
Servings: 4

1 c lentils
6 c water
2 rashers bacon, diced
1 leek, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
1 T vegetable oil
2 T unbleached flour
1 T vinegar
4 German sausage frankfurters; thickly sliced
1 T catsup
1 t salt

Wash the lentils thoroughly. In a 2 1/2-quart saucepan bring 6
cups of water to a boil. Add the lentils, bacon, leek or green
onion, carrot and celery. Simmer, partially covered, for 30 to 40
minutes. Meanwhile in a frypan, saute chopped onion in vegetable
oil until soft. Sprinkle flour over onion, and stir. Lower heat,
stir constantly, and cook until the flour turns a light brown. DO
NOT burn flour. Stir in 1/2 cup of hot lentil soup into the browned
flour; beat with a wire whisk until well-blended. Beat in vinegar.
Add contents of frypan to lentil pan and stir together. Cover and
simmer for 30 minutes or until lentils are soft. Add the frankfurters
and catsup. Cook to heat frankfurters through. Season with salt
and pepper and serve hot.
