This healthy sausage and kale soup is also loaded with carrots, tomatoes, and lentils. It’s a deliciously good-for-you dinner to warm up with on a cool evening!
This weekend I brought you an Alfredo pizza, and I’ve got a something else cheesy planned for Thursday. In an effort to make up for all that cheese, I’m bringing you what may be the healthiest recipe I’ve ever written. I mean, it has kale AND barley AND lentils! I don’t know how I could have packed much more fiber or vitamins into one bowl.
Am I the only one who kind of dreads healthy dinners until I’m actually eating them? When I know a healthy sausage and kale soup or salad or anything that isn’t smothered in cheese is on the menu for dinner, I have a ho-hum attitude about it. I’m sure it won’t be delicious or think I’ll go hungry or something, but then I’m always happy after the first bite.
I wish I could make myself remember that healthy doesn’t mean boring or flavorless! Maybe I’ll remember now that I’m writing it all out. This soup is loaded with texture from the slightly chewy sausage, al dente carrots, and tender greens and lentils. The tomatoes add a nice tangy flavor, and it’s all swimming in a savory broth. What’s not to like??
This is one of those dishes that is hard to name since it has a lot going on. Kale and Sausage Stew with Barley and Lentils and Tomatoes and Carrots doesn’t really roll off the tongue, so let’s call it Healthy Sausage and Kale Soup for (kinda) short. You’ll just have to remember all the other goodness is in there. I hope you enjoy this hearty dinner on a cool evening very soon!
