In a pot, bring the rice and water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat, and cook the turkey kielbasa until lightly browned. Mix in onion and carrot, and season with red pepper. Cook and stir until tender. Pour in the water and broth, and mix in lentils. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 25 minutes. Stir the cooked rice and spinach into the soup, and continue cooking 5 minutes before serving.

  • I cut the work by cooking my rice in the water along with the lentils. Either way, this is a great, great recipe. So good in this cold weather we are having right now.

  • Without stats for fat, sodium, cholesterol etc. content, the recipes are not of value. I don't want to try to guess.
