Lentil Soup with Kale

The perfect rainy day meal... Lentil soup simmered all day in the slow cooker with steamed kale mixed in. I used the recipe from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, but it's so simple you could totally wing it - lentils, veggie stock (I prefer homemade, but store-bought is cool, too), carrots, onions and celery (the foundation of any good slow cooker recipe). Steam the kale separately (I like it cut into bite-sized pieces) and add it at the last minute.

Enjoy on a rainy afternoon or evening with a side salad or crusty bread while curled up on the couch watching a movie.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Rinse the lentils before adding them to your slow cooker!
