Lemony Lentil Soup
In this simple soup recipe, you’ll simmer everyday ingredients like carrots, onion, garlic, and spices with red lentils, which are the perfect soup legume since they break down into soft submission. Instead of pureeing the entire soup into oblivion, you’ll only blend half the batch to retain some texture. On top are crispy, roasted kale leaves for a modern garnish—they’re not your mother’s parsley leaves, that’s for sure. For a classic soup-and-sandwich combo, serve with a whole-grain grilled cheese.
