Kale and Lentil Soup by Colleen Guenther

This soup is superb! It's ultra healthy and easy to make. I mean, all you really need to do is chop some stuff up, throw it in with some other stuff and voila, you've got an amazing meal!;) Try it!

What you Need:

4 cups vegetable broth

1 cup dried lentils, rinsed
3 carrots, chopped
3 celery ribs, chopped
1 onion, chopped
3-5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 bay leaf
3 sprigs of fresh thyme leaves
1 handful of flat-leaf parsley leaves chopped
1 bunch kale, stemmed, rinsed, chopped (about 3 cups)
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper


Sautee your onions, garlic, carrots and celery in a pot for about 5 minutes. Then, add the rest of  your ingredients, except for the kale. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook, partially covered, for 20 minutes. Then, stir in your kale and cook, partially covered, until lentils and carrots are tender and kale wilts, about 10 minutes longer. Then, take out your bay leave and thyme sprigs (what is left of them) and using an immersion blender, purée 1/2 of the soup. Enjoy!
