African Style Lentil Stew

We love lentils! They are our legume of choice because of the high fiber content and anti-inflammatory properties.
For this recipe we used
1 cup of red split lentils
4 stalks of celery
1 cup of chopped carrots (can use sweet potato instead)
1 sweet onion
1/2 red pepper, diced
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cardamon powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp thyme
2 cups vegetable broth
2 cups of chopped kale

Directions: water saute the vegetables. When soft add the spices, vegetable broth and lentils. 5 minutes prior to serving add the chopped kale. We love the baby oak leaf kale.
