I got this recipe for Kale and Lentil soup from Diana Dryer's website. She is a three time cancer survivor and her recipes are CHOCK full of cancer fighting ingredients - but more than that her food is good - dang good!!
I have adapted this recipe slightly from the original. Many, many skeptics have loved this soup! If you have not tried Kale yet - this is the PERFECT introduction.
Turkey, Kale and Lentil Soup
1 teas olive oil
1 cup onions chopped
1 teas garlic minced
1 pkg. Italian style turkey sausage (hot or mild, casings removed)
2 cups potatoes, diced
3-4 carrots coined
1 cup lentils
10 cups veggie broth
I Large bunch Kale rinsed and rough torn
1 teas sea salt
red pepper flakes (if desired)
Saute the onion, turkey sausages and garlic in olive oil. Add the carrots, potatoes, lentils and broth and bring to a boil. Once at a full boil turn heat down to low and simmer 1-2hrs. 20mins before serving bring heat up to med and place torn Kale on top of soup. Cover and steam. When Kale is wilted stir into soup and return heat to low. Add sea salt and red pepper flakes to taste.
