Non-Penitential Lentil Soup

Quick note on the name: My roommates both lived in vegetarian communal households during college and had eaten what they called "penitential" vegetarian foods--dishes that was healthy and all, but basically tasteless, as though the eater was being punished for something. Including occasional lentil soups with no flavor. This, however, is a delicious lentil soup, and therefore, non-penitential. It could more accurately be called:

Lentil soup with paprika, tomatoes, and kaleCollapse )

Healthy, cheap, AND delicious! It's pretty substantial on its own, but a good fresh bread would probably be lovely for dipping into the soup.
