    Well how perfect, I was just staring at some red lentils in my pantry and wondering what kind of soup to make! And I adore Kale (no really, I eat it almost daily, so good for you!). Thanks so much, you’re blog is wonderful ;)

    Me too. Were you reading my mind? I’ve had this bag of red lentils for a long time (and I hope they are still good). And I’ve got some small bags of kale from the garden that I froze last summer so one bag will probably be perfect for this recipe. Thanks!

    @Laurel, I don’t think lentils go bad…maybe in 8 or 10 years?? But dry beans last forever.

    Looks like another winner Amy!
    I am off of beans until the end of the month but I will be making this one soon after. It will go beautifully with my Kale. This year I added Red Russian Kale to my garden.
    I am curious as to the difference between the 2 paprika’s. I will do some googling to see what I can find. I have neither.
    Thanks so much, this looks like it will be a go to soup for me!

    @Christianne, I am still jealous of your garden. Someday I’ll have one! Until then, I’ll have to just drag my kale home from the store.

    Enjoy the paprika. YUM!!!

    @InTolerant Chef, I guess it’s not cold in your neck of the woods? Dallas has been in the 40′s and 50′s. Not my cup of tea.

    I’m so excited to try this recipe! My mouth is watering as I type this…seriously! I used to make a lentil soup with regular lentils but haven’t made it in years. My son loved it and just asked me if I was going to make lentil soup sometime again. I’m going to make this one instead! Sounds packed with nutrition and flavor too. I’m a huge fan of smoked paprika. I put it in everything from rubs to BBQ sauce. Love the smoky flavor it imparts.

    Thanks again for another winning recipe-
    Jen

    @Jen, We love lentils of all kinds. I use Puy lentils when I’m making a fish or chicken dish because they don’t break down like other lentils. Glad the smoked paprika is a hit at your house too.
    Hugs,
    Amy

    Looks great, I love lentils, kale and smoked paprika! I love the hot kind.

    @Carol, I have the hot kind, too, but I’m not tolerating it right now. Joe loves to use it in his cheese dip. Yum.

    This looks great Amy! I have been making a new soup every other night it seems. The smoked spanish paprika has become a favorite in my house. (thanks to you!) This will be my next soup.

    Love red lentils! A lot of people who can’t tolerate beans/legumes well tell me that they do fine with red lentils for some reason. Maybe it’s because they break down more in cooking…don’t know, but I’m a big fan! :)

    @Hallie @ Daily Bites, I think people forget that lentils exist. You’re right, they’re not the common bean. I am a fan too.

    I made this today and it turned out perfectly, I did not have any more Paprika so I used three bay leaves and the Table and Oridginal flavores of Mrs. Dash and some pink and green pepper corns… turned out wonderful, thank you for simple and easy and tastey recipes. I appreciate your blog so very much .

    @Kathy, Don’t bay leaves add the most scrumptious flavor? I’ve been using them in a veg soup we’ve been devouring. Best veg soup ever!

    Thank your for the sweet compliment. I’m grateful my blog is helpful to you, Kathy.

    This sounds perfect for today, when we’re having lake effect snow here in W Mich. BTW – the solution for hard-to-find spices is Penzeys.com!

    @Mary McC, I have a girlfriend who swears by Penzeys. I’ve never ordered from them – I think they even have a store in Dallas. Glad to hear you like them too.

    Hi Amy, love the recipe. I don’t see a nutritional breakdown anywhere? Are you able to reply with that info? I am looking for the protein content etc per serving.
    Thanks so much!
