Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Cook red onion in hot oil until browned, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Pour lentils into the pot with onion; add enough water to cover the lentils by 2 to 3 inches. Bring the water to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low.
  3. Stir tomato paste, garlic, brown sugar, and paprika into the lentil mixture to integrate the paste smoothly into the liquid; bring to a simmer and cook until the lentils are tender, about 1 hour.
  4. Stir kale into the lentils, reduce heat to low, and cook until the kale is tender, 10 to 15 minutes; season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

This is a great side dish to any meal. The tomato and brown sugar seem to counteract the bitterness of the kale but mingles well with the garlic. I also added some fresh ground turmeric which was a nice addition to the paprika flavour. Keep your eye on the liquid though. I had to add some water during the process to keep it from scorching. Thank you bolshevik for sharing your recipe.

We did like this veggie dish, though did find it needed a few adjustments at least for the locale we live in. I did not think it needed a full cup of olive oil for the onions so just used enough to sweat the onion tip not quite caramelized. And from past experience of cooking lentils here, I have found that 20-30 minutes is sufficient. Overall, this was pretty flavorful and satisfying and glad I found this!!! At the final seasoning, I did add a bit of flaked red pepper for a bit of zing. Thanks for this post, bolshevik
