Ham, Lentil and Kale Soup (Diary and Grain/Gluten Free)
Now that the colder weather is approaching, my body is craving soups and stews. I had a ham bone in the freezer and bought some lentils so this is what came of them. This is definitely a hearty soup or is it a stew? I am not quite sure of the difference other than I believe a stew comprises of actually "stewing" the meat. So whatever this is, it was yummy and didn't last long. I actually had some for a morning snack.
Ingredients (serves approximately 4-6 people)
1 ham bone
6 cups water
1 1/2 cup lentils
3 chopped carrots
2 cups chopped kale
1 chopped small onion
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
3 bay leaves
1 teaspoon coriander
In a large pot place bone with water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Add all other ingredients and cook for another 45 minutes.
Remove bone and cut off any leftover meat and add to soup.
