      I subbed Turkey Choritzo to save some calories, and used kale as suggested by another reviewer. With a warm seeded roll on the side, wow, did this hit the spot on a chilly day! Great alternative to chili.

      I found this original recipe on Red Book Magazine, and it is one of our family's favorites. However, some tips: First, it makes way more than just 8 servings, more like 12 servings (So the calories are less than 350 per serving). Also, We only put half of the lentils in- if you put all it is too thick. I also use kale or another fresh green instead of spinach- it holds up more nicely and is tons cheaper and healthier for you. This is a must favorite in our family.
