Recipe Ingredients for Lentil Soup with Soy Sausage and Kale

1 lb Gimme Lean Soy Sausage
1 tbsp olive oil
1 cup lentils
1 medium onion, raw
1/2 lb mushrooms, raw
1 medium onion, raw
1/4 cup tomato paste
4 cups vegetable stock
6 cups kale, shredded

Recipe Directions for Lentil Soup with Soy Sausage and Kale

  1. Place a large soup pot over medium-high heat with one turn of the pan of EVOO, about 1 tablespoon. Once hot, add the turkey sausage and sauté for 3-4 minutes, breaking it up into small pieces with the back of a spoon or a potato masher as it cooks and browns.

  2. While the sausage is browning, pour the lentils out onto a light-colored plate and sift through them. Discard any small stones ? sometimes you find them and sometimes you don't, but better safe than sorry.

  3. To the browned sausage, add the onion, garlic, mushrooms, 2 springs rosemary, sage, cayenne, worcestershire, 4 sprigs thyme, salt, pepper and the tomato paste. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes.

  4. Add the stock and 2 cups of water, turn the heat up to high and bring up to a bubble. Add the lentils and the kale, stir until the kale wilts in, then turn the heat down to medium and simmer for 30-40 minutes, until the lentils are tender. Serve.
