Kale Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup

Submitted by: BRANUBODY08

Introduction

This simple, nutritious soup can be changed to your liking by making your own broth or switching the types of beans. I used green lentils, but red lentils, and garbanzos are great as well.

    Lentils-1cup

    Garlic-2 cloves sliced or minced

Directions

Saute onion & garlic in a pot with olive oil. Add remaining ingredients except kale. Bring to a boil. Turn down to simmer for 15 minutes. Add kale. Simmer for another 15 minutes.
Tip:If you want sweet potatoes more firm than soft, add them after 10 minutes before you add the kale. The soft sweet potatoes add sweetness to the broth base of the soup. DELICIOUS!!

    Really yummy! I used tiny red lentils because that is what I had around. They really cooked down, and made the soup very creamy without cream. :) I also added 1tsp of cumin and a few dashes of cinnamon, because I love me some cumin. Very easy, very tasty! I will totally make this again. - 11/15/10

  • I thought this was fine with the amount of liquid that it called for, but I did add in an extra 2 cups because I wanted a looser soup. I also used different herbs (just red pepper flakes, cumin, sage, and a bit of lime juice) since I've been eating a lot of curry, but it was yummy and easy to make! - 2/2/12

  • I loved the sweet potatoes in it. I agree that there is not nearly enough liquid in the recipe. We added a lot of water. (I also used only 1 1/2 sweet potatoes because mine were huge.)

    Really good though. I will definitely make it again. - 1/2/12

  • This was really great! Hearty yet light. We had to add a LOT more broth (about 8-9 cups) though. I used not quite a whole bunch of kale, and made baked kale chips with the rest! Plenty of soup to last us all week! :) - 11/8/11

  • I'm making this right now. However, I did make some changes. I used 12 cups of water and one bouillon cube...not sure how 6 cups of liquid could cover everything...it's packed with 12 cups. I only needed 1 T of olive oil for the onions and garlic(used 4 cloves, sliced). It's smells great so far! - 1/31/11
