Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven or heavy soup pot over medium heat. Add onion and a pinch of salt and saute until translucent, about 4 mnutes. Add carrots, celery, squash and another pinch of salt and saute until all vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in curry powder, cumin, turmeric, coriander, cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoons of salt and red pepper flakes. Add lentils and stir to coat. Pour in 1/2 cup of broth to deglaze the pot, stirring to loosen any bits stuck to the bottom and cook until liquid is reduced by half. Add remaining broth. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Decrease heat to low. Cover and simmer until lentils are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Taste and adjust salt, if needed. Stir in kale and cook until tender, about 3 minutes.
  4. VARIATIONS: Substitute fennel for the celery to add more depth to the flavor. If you have trouble finding delicata squash, use its cousin, butternut squash.
