 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4  pound         smoked sausage
      1/3  cup           oil
      1/3  cup           flour
    4      stalks        celery -- chopped fine
    3      cloves        garlic -- minced
    2                    onions -- diced
    2      large         carrots -- chopped fine
    2      quarts        chicken broth
    1 3/4  cups          dried lentils
    1      tablespoon    Worcestershire sauce
      1/4  teaspoon      pepper
      1/4  teaspoon      cayenne pepper
 
 1. In a 5 to 7 quart pan, over medium heat, cook sausage, stirring, until
 brown. Spoon from pan; reserve. Add oil to drippings in pan to make 1/3 cup
 fat. Add flour; stir until mixture is red brown, about 10 minutes.
 
 2. Add celery, garlic, onion, and carrots; cook, stirring, until vegetables
 begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add reserved sausage, chicken broth,
 lentils, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, and cayenne. Bring to boiling over
 high heat; reduce to simmer, cover and cook until lentils are soft when
 pressed, about 40 minutes.
