This is a thick soup that makes a meal.

Heat stock pot, add oil & chopped onion. Saute until glassy.

Take sausage meat out of the casings and break up. Saute in pan with onions, celery & garlic, breaking up the sausage and stirring as it browns.
Add water, sliced carrots, chopped potatoes, lentils and quinoa.
Thaw the kale in the microwave (if frozen), add to stock pot.
Boil for 20-25 minutes
