Spicy Lentil & Kale Soup

 

Deb found this recipe on Kraft Canada site and wanted to try it. I went out and got what we didn’t have and prepared it for her lunch Monday. It is a easy recipe not complicated or a lot of work and she has really enjoyed it. I made the full recipe so she had plenty to use over the last few days. Here is picture of the final product.
