I seem to be putting a lot of stuff over kale this week. Certainly many of the things I eat could be put over rice or noodles but kale is good for me. So kale it is. It really bulks up a dish with a minimum of calories and fat.
Basically I chopped all the components and put them in the large Le Creuset pot we call Potapotamus to cook with a couple of teaspoons of olive oil and some spray. Mushrooms first with a few pieces of turkey sausage for additional oil. Then, onions, carrots, celery, garlic, chicken stock, the rest of the turkey sausage, a couple of sprigs of thyme, and the lentils. Cook until the lentils are tender, around 20 minutes. The kale underneath is wilted by the heat from the stew. John uses a bit of finishing oil but I do not.
