Turkey Sausage, Lentil and Kale Soup

Haylee Shelton | Vitacost.com/Blog


When you think of winter comfort foods, kale might not immediately come to mind. But it certainly does the trick in this warm and hearty soup, when it’s joined with savory turkey sausage, flavorful tomatoes and belly-satisfying lentils (seriously, it’s hard not to love lentils). So next time the weather outside is frightful, you can stay inside and stay nourished — at least until the soup runs out!
