Spicy Sausage, Lentil & Kale Soup

4 from 1 reviews




  1. In a large pot, saute garlic, leeks, carrots, peppers and sweet potato over medium heat for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the sausage, lentils, broth, tomatoes and spices.
  3. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until veggies reach desired tenderness (15-20 min).
  4. Stir in kale, let simmer an additional 5 minutes.
  5. Serve warm.


To make this vegetarian/vegan, use veggie broth, leave out the sausage and add your favorite beans or tofu!
Use whatever veggies are your favorite if you don’t like the ones I used.
You could use spinach or any other leafy greens instead of kale.
Pretty simple, right? Like I mention in the notes, this soup is easy to customize. Use your favorite veggies or whatever you have on hand…Add some beans instead of lentils…you get the idea! I used spinach & mozzarella chicken sausages from Meijer but any kind of sausage should work.
