Lentil Tomato Kale Soup

Here is one of my favourite soups. Loaded with lentils and vegetables like carrots, tomatoes and kale, it is not only deliciously healthy but also very good for you!

I hope you'll like this soup and, if you do, drop me a line in the comment box and tell me all about it...



3/4 cup dried lentils
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 carrots, chopped ( about 2 cups)
4 medium tomatoes, chopped
5-6 cups water
1 bunch of Kale, chopped
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 tsp. sea salt
2 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tsp. dill weed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
 sour cream, optional for serving


Rinse lentils and place into a medium saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook lentils until they become soft, (about 20-30 minutes). Set aside.

Meanwhile place oil and chopped onions into a large saucepan; sauté until translucent; add minced garlic, chopped carrots and sauté 2-3 minutes longer, stirring a few times.

Add chopped tomatoes and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20.

Add chopped kale and cook until kale is tender.

Stir in the tomato paste, salt, parsley, dill weed and pepper and simmer for 5 minutes for flavours to blend.

Serve with sour cream if you like and one (or two) slices of  Corn Bread.

Makes: 6 –8 servings

Happy Cooking!
