Stir the tomatoes, garlic, red pepper, bay leaf, broth and lentils into the saucepot and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 25 minutes or until the lentils are tender. Discard the bay leaf.
Stir the kale into the saucepot and cook for 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese, if desired.
Savory Lentil Soup
It was so tasty, even though I didn't have red pepper, watercress or cheese. I used canned whole tomatoes.
This is very good!
