We had our cast party for ECS (Every Christmas Story Ever Told and Then Some) last night. I decided to try and bring something that was both extra healthy and hearty and hopefully - super delicious!! Thanks to Diana Dyer's website I was able to easily modify one of her Great recipes for my purposes. Diana is a THREE time cancer survivor and encourages healthy eating as a major preventative measure in the fight against cancer.
Here is what I made:
Lentil Soup with Sausage and Kale
1 teas olive oil
1 pkg. Italian Turkey Sausage
1 med. onion
4 large carrots
4 red potatoes
1 large bunch (about a lb) Kale, washed and torn from the stem
1 cup rinsed lentils
10 cups veggie broth
1 teas sea salt
Brown sausage and use spatula (or other) to crumble into bite sized pieces. I had Eric run the onion and carrots through the food processor for a quick and easy prep. You can do this or chop by hand. Add veggies to sausage and soften. Add lentils, broth, salt and potatoes (rough cubed). Finally add Kale. Bring to a boil for about 60mins. Keep warm either on the stove top or transfer to crockpot until ready to eat.
It was a rich chunky soup with great color! ABSOLUTELY yummy and healthy!!!
