Lentil, Kale, and Sausage Soup
The original recipe is from the Nov 2011 'Taste of Home' magazine and called Lentil-Tomato soup. I doubled the size and tweaked the seasonings. I recommend cornbread as a side. Great for cold winter days.
Tastes great with Italian or breakfast sausage, but if you leave it out, it's a nice vegetarian soup.
Garam masala is an Indian spice. It can be spicy.
