I made HALF a recipe and it made more than enough for 6 as an entree. I doubled the kale and squeezed the juice from a lemon into the dish after tasting. This dish would be good with some feta sprinkled on top. Thank you for sharing.
I liked this recipe. It is a Great base. If you are the only one eating from the pot, you are going to want to go ahead and set at least half aside to freeze. The salsa added a surprising amount of depth although next time I will not use store bought salsa. I made the recipe as directed and it was better the next day, but not awesome. one night for leftovers I pulled a couple cups out and I added adobo sauce, cumin and cilantro for a more southwestern flavor and another night I added turmeric, curry powder and paste and ginger for a mid-east vibe. Both were excellent...I will use the recipe as a guide for other dishes in the future.
This was really really good! Can't believe no one has rated it yet. The ingredients seem a bit odd, especially the salsa, but it all works. I used some Farro in addition to the lentils to add some texture, about 1/4 cup. Otherwise followed the recipe pretty much as written.
Overall a nice vegetarian alternative. Thank you to whoever posted this one. It's a keeper.
Excellent recipe! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used chicken broth in place of vegetable broth. I must admit, I wasn't sure how this would taste, I don't particularly care for lentils. But now I do! I will use this recipe as one of my regulars now. Even Husband and 3 kids liked it! PS. Remember when using kale, run your knife along the edge of the stem and cut the leaves off the stem. Do not eat the stem, that is the bitter part!
So GOod!! And so easy! I used half lentils half navy beans (soak the beans before you add them, maybe even cook a few minutes before adding since they take longer than the lentils) and the flavor was delicious. I also doubled the kale to get more greens in. For a little extra flavor I chopped some fresh cilantro and added that when I added the kale. Such a great recipe, I will be making this a lot! (Even my football playing boyfriend raved about it) =}
We didn't have regular salsa, so I used a peach-flavored variety. It tasted great and we each ate several helpings. We never knew lentils and kale could be so delicious. We will definitely make this again.
This is so easy to make, inexpensive, healthy, and delicious! I did not change anything, and don't believe anything needs to be changed. Will certainly make again, and can forsee this becoming a regular part of our family meal rotation!!!
I was looking for a soup recipe that used both kale and lentils. Typically I like to use recipes that have MANY reviews, the higher starred the better obviously. I am so glad I took a chance on this recipe - it is extremely easy to make and tasty. I did choose to use chicken broth vs. vegetable broth and I cut my carrots rather than shredded them. I also omitted the spices, because frankly, I forgot to put them in. Thanks to the store bought salsa, I didn't miss them. In my estimation, it makes way more than 6 servings (as other reviewers have expressed) but that is just fine because I shared it with my neighbor, and my mother-in-law, and of course my husband and they all gushed over it. The real test may be my 13 and 15 year old kiddos, but I honestly don't care if they like it or not because I am happy to eat the left-overs all on my own! Will def be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe!
