When I saw this recipe on the Clean Eating Mama's blog, I got really hungry. I knew I had most of the ingredients on hand already, and that the temperature would be dropping over the next few days. There's nothing like a hearty soup to warm you up (but not fill you up too much). We both enjoyed it this evening, and we're both looking forward to having more for lunch tomorrow.
I used spinach instead of kale (I just don't like kale...I've tried really hard), and I did a cup of lentils and a cup of brown rice instead of two cups of brown rice. I also played around with the spices, and really liked the crushed red pepper that we threw in. My soup turned into more of a stew than Tasha's did, but it was delicious nonetheless. We ate it with toasted Ezekiel bread dipped in...yum!
