  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir shredded carrot, chopped onion, and minced garlic in the hot oil until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Pour vegetable broth into the pot. Stir lentils and salsa into the broth mixture. Bring to a boil, place a cover on the pot, and cook at a simmer until the lentils are softened, about 45 minutes.
  3. Season the lentil mixture with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Stir kale into the lentil mixture. Replace the cover onto the pot and cook just until the kale is wilted, 3 to 5 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:

  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

My whole family loved this recipe. I doubled the cayenne pepper but nothing else. One trick to easily remove the tough stem of the kale is to grab the thickest end of the stem with one hand, cir...

Excellent recipe! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used chicken broth in place of vegetable broth. I must admit, I wasn't sure how this would taste, I don't particularly care for lentils....

This is so easy to make, inexpensive, healthy, and delicious! I did not change anything, and don't believe anything needs to be changed. Will certainly make again, and can forsee this becoming a...

This is a very nice recipe! I used my pressure cooker - I sautéed the vegetables in the pot and added everything except the seasoning and kale. Cook for 8 minutes at high pressure (I actually di...
