Hey guys, I've got a little recipe for you today :) This has been my "leftover" meal of the week (the one I've eaten pretty much every day at school). I'm a huge soup person, even when it's warm, because it is so easy.
I'm also here to say goodbye (just for a few days!) I'm a little overwhelmed feeling with the amount of work that has suddenly popped up to finish off the semester (I know, you're sad, right?). I'll be back by next week Wednesday at the latest, I just need a few days to focus/get organized and blogging has become a MAJOR distraction :)
(so has the puppy at my aunt's)
So enjoy the recipe, enjoy the weather, and enjoy your weekends! (I'll be back soon)
Kale and Lentil soup
3/4 dried lentils, rinsed and cleaned
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 tsp olive oil
1 TBSP chicken base (or veggie base)
2 bunches kale, cleaned and removed from stems
6 cups water
2 TBSP nutritional yeast
salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil in a dutch oven, add carrots, celery, and bell pepper and saute until tender. Add lentils, chicken (or veggie) base and water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until lentils are cooked through. Stir in kale and let rest 1-2 minutes until slightly wilted.
Will last up to a week in the fridge.
