Kale Lentil Soup

I haven’t been wanting to eat salad lately because it’s cold and everywhere around me is cold, so the thought of throwing it all into a soup sounded like a rather worthy idea. Couple that with the fact that I had a whole lot of lentils that I bought on sale a couple months ago and we had ourselves a winner! Recipe adapted from here!

I just realized that the picture makes it look more like stew than anything else, but it came out like a super super hearty soup. (It’d probably work really well over rice.) Makes about 12 small-ish servings and very adaptable! You can throw in potatoes to make it more filling, take out the chicken essence and use vegetable broth to make it vegetarian/vegan, cut up sausage for more protein…

      Agreed! 😀 My friend was sick, so I brought some over for her today and she loved it! If winter keeps being this cold, I may have to delve into making a bunch of other types of soup, haha.
