  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir shredded carrot, chopped onion, and minced garlic in the hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Pour vegetable broth into the pot. Stir lentils and salsa into the broth mixture. Bring to a boil, place a cover on the pot, and cook at a simmer until the lentils are softened, about 45 minutes.
  3. Season the lentil mixture with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Stir kale into the lentil mixture. Replace the cover onto the pot and cook just until the kale is wilted, 3 to 5 minutes.

So GOod!! And so easy! I used half lentils half navy beans (soak the beans before you add them, maybe even cook a few minutes before adding since they take longer than the lentils) and the flavo...

This is really hearty and delicious. A snowstorms was in the forecast, so I made sure I had the ingredients on hand. Great, warm comfort food for lunch...and healthy too.

Glad I halved the recipe, as other reviewers suggested. Hubby loved it, and said it was a keeper, and he's pretty picky.
