Lentil and Kale Soup

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by meedeeter

Plan to make this at least a day ahead, because it gets so much better after sitting overnight. Then just heat up the soup, make a salad and bread, and you have a fantastic meal! And healthy! From Soups Up by Sally Sampson.

We enjoyed this immensely, especially given the fact my family rarely has a meatless meal. The red pepper flakes gave just a subtle hint of heat that was quite pleasing.<br/>I will definitely make this again,and thank you, meedeeter, for posting.
