10. Back in New England, we called it Portuguese penicillin

only we made it with white beans instead of lentils. Online recipes all look like heresy to me, they use kielbasa when any self respecting eastern Masshole would only use chourico or linguica for the sausage. Other than that, it's onions, garlic, olive oil, kale, potatoes, white beans, and black pepper. It was a cheap way to get through a winter and people I know who lived on it were remarkably healthy.

Kale and yogurt soup is also pretty nice, the yogurt seems to tame the aggressively green taste of kale.

I've been craving soups lately because it's been so cold here in the high desert.

Aha! Found a recipe that looks close to what I used to do: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/portuguese-chourico-and-kale-soup-recipe-1939580
