The Easiest Lentil-Kale Soup

I need to fix a quick lunch very often and find a red lentil stew or a soup to be the quickest and simplest things to prepare. Red lentils are ready in no time even without soaking and are so hearty and filling besides having a nice flavour. How about lentil-kale soup ?

The ingredients of my lentil soup vary depending on what’s in the fridge and pantry, but the below is one of my favourites.

Onions, garlic, carrots and lentils are the sure ingredients every time to which I add starches (corn, potatoes, yucca or sweet potatoes), some vegetables (red bell peppers, celery, summer squash, kale, Swiss chard, green beans and/or broccoli), and flavours (turmeric, smoked paprika, cumin, mustard seeds and/or curry powder). Sometimes I add a bit of coconut milk and/or tomato puree for extra flavour.

I use onion flakes and dried garlic to save time on peeling and chopping, but you can go ahead and use a small fresh onion and a few garlic cloves instead.
