Red Lentil Soup with Kale and Fresh Herbs
Red lentils look very pretty, until they are cooked! This soup isn't necessarily beautiful to look at, but it is extremely tasty and filled with vitamins, protein, and fiber. I adapted it from a recipe I found in a vegan cookbook, and gave it a little more flavor with kale, seasonings, and smoked paprika. I LOVE smoked paprika, and I strive to put it in almost everything!
With this soup, you can easily get lunch or dinner on the table in under an hour. Serve with lemon wedges, toasted whole-grain pita bread, and a side salad for a filling meal. If you'd like the soup to be even creamier, stir in some plain, unsweetened soy yogurt (for vegans) orG Greek Yogurt (for vegetarians) before serving.
