Lentil Soup With Frankfurters


500g of red lentils

12 frankfurters

lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste


Wash and strain the lentils several times to remove the starch.  Put in a large saucepan and cover with water, about 2 cms. over the lentils.  Bring to the boil, then simmer for an hour.  It should have turned into a thick soup by then.  Cut the frankfurters into bite sized pieces and add them to the soup.  Continue to simmer for 10 minutes.  Add the salt, pepper and lemon.

Nice served with crusty bread and crispy fried onions.
