Ingredients

    4 garlic cloves, minced
    2 tsp coriander
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 qt. vegetable broth
    2 bay leaves
    1 cup lentils (brown or green)
    2 cups diced potatoes with skin
    8 oz. sausage (soy or chicken; chicken used in calorie count)
    4 cups stemmed and chopped kale (or spinach if you prefer)
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Cheese to garnish

Directions

Cook the garlic and coriander in the oil in a large pot for a minute. Add the broth, bay leaves and lentils. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the potatoes. Return the cover and cook until the potatoes and lentils are tender, about 15-20 minutes.

While the stew simmers, slice the sausage into rounds and saute them in a skillet over medium-low heat until browned.

When the potatoes and lentils are done, stir in the browned sausage and kale; stir and cook until the kale is tender, about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste, and top with a grating of cheese.

Makes FOUR servings.
