This is a vegetarian dish that I keep in the fridge at all times. It's a great recipe to prepare on a Sunday (when things are hopefully calmer in your house) to have on hand all week for lunches and dinners. We all love it in my house, even baby Chloe. I feed her individual lentils one after the other and she can't seem to get enough of them. As for Kenya, as soon as he found out that the type of kale I use in the recipe is called "dinosaur kale", he was downing it by the spoonful!
I buy nearly all of the ingredients for this recipe -- the lentils and the vegetables -- at the farmers market where they're certified organic, in season, and cost the same price or less than I would find them for at the grocery. When you can make a healthy, high protein, tasty and exotic recipe like this one that everyone in the family loves, it makes for a very happy mommy!
