Super Nutrient Kale Lentil Soup

This is a revised version of our family's favorite soup which is very good and I have blogged it before. (see original recipe here: http://www.cancerrd.com/Recipes/lentilkalesoup1.htm ) My KIDS love this soup and REQUEST it often.  Here is what I did today:


Super nutrient Kale & Lentil Soup:
2 large Leeks rinsed and coined
4 whole Carrots (not baby) rinsed and coined
1 med-large Sweet Potato diced
1 cup brown Lentils
12 cups water
1 veggie broth cube
1 teas Mrs Dash no salt seasoning
1 teas Pink Himalayan Salt
1 pkg SOY sausage (I used Trader joe's Chorizo - which is nice and SPICY :)
1 large bunch Green Curly Kale chopped or torn (dont use stems)
1 pkg sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms

Saute leeks, carrots, sweet potatoes in a small amount of water.  Add lentils, seasonings and water.  Bring to a boil and then reduce to med-low.  Crumble in soy sausage. Add mushrooms and Kale.  Reduce to low and simmer at least one hour - but the longer you let this stuff bubble away the better and better it tastes!!
