Super Soup is a great wintertime meal-type soup.
- 1 tbs Olive Oil
- 1 lg Onion coarsely chopped
- 2 -3 turnips, peeled and chopped
- 4 carrots chopped
- 3-4 cloves garlic sliced
- 1 cup lentils, any type.
- About 5 cups kale, chopped
- 6 cups stock or water
- 1 tbs turmeric
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- S&P to taste
In a big pot, heat the oil to medium high. Add the onions, turnips and carrots and cook just until tender and starting to brown – about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook just a minute more – until you can really smell that garlic!
Remove the veggies from the pot and set aside.
Add the 6 cups stock or water to the pot & bring to a boil. Add the lentils, turmeric, cinnamon, salt & pepper and simmer 25-30 minutes, until the lentils are tender.
Add everything into the pot and heat through – about the time it will take the kale to wilt and get tender, about 5 minutes. Taste to see if it needs more S&P.
Serve as is or with a chunk of artisan bread, or over brown rice.
