Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup lentils
6 cups water
2 strips of bacon, diced
1 leek rib, washed and sliced
1 carrot, peeled chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white distilled vinegar
4 frankfurters, sliced
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions:

  1. Wash lentils. In a 3-quart saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add the lentils, diced strips of bacon, sliced leek rib, chopped carrot, and chopped celery rib. Simmer, partially covered, for 30 to 40 minutes.
