Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 6


  • 3 large carrots, finely chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound spicy sausage, ground (you can also use 1/2 pound spicy and 1/2 pound regular)
  • 1 cup French green lentils (you can also use red lentils)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cans full fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup kale, chopped


  • In a large Dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil over medium heat. Add the carrots, celery and onion. Sauté until they start to soften a bit, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the sausage and continue to cook, breaking up the sausage as it cooks, until the sausage is nicely browned. Add the lentils and chicken broth. Bring to a simmer and cook according to the instructions on your lentil package. You want to cook your lentils until they are still al dente, just a bit of give, but not mushy.
  • Add the coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Once it thickens a bit, stir in the kale and let it all simmer away for about 5 minutes.
  • Serve immediately.
