Black Lentil Stew with Sausage and Kale
Sausage and lentils are a match made in heaven. Add kale to the mix, and you've got the perfect cold-weather stew without spending more than an hour in the kitchen. What's a better deal than that? Chef John suggests that you use any sausage you prefer; it will do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to flavor, so seasoning this soup is dead simple. To the sausage add lentils; black/beluga lentils work wonders here. After 20 minutes of simmer, in goes ribbons of dino kale, which adds to the slightly earthy flavor. Of course, use any of your favorite kinds of lentils and veggies; in the end, you'll have a comforting, deeply delicious remedy to any cold-weather woes.
