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…
Kale Lentil Soup
-12 oz. frozen vegetables
-6 cups water
-1 1/2 tbsp chicken essence (optional! sub with veggie broth or just omit altogether)
-1 tsp dried thyme
-freshly ground black pepper
-1 cup green lentils
-1 cup red lentils
-1 pack Harvest Sensations Kale Salad (please don’t throw in the dressing)
-1 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1) Put all ingredients into crockpot and cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 6-8).
2) Add kale + balsamic vinegar ~10-15 minutes before serving.

Yumm perfect for these cold winter months!
Agreed! :D 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.
I have been making tons! Check out my blog if you need any recipes haha
Ooo! Much appreciated! They look good and I still have a whole lot of lentils I got on sale. Will be trying em’ out once I’m done with all the food I mass-cooked over the weekend! :]
