      Make this when a bowl of something hearty and rib-sticking is in order on one of those evenings when whatÂ’s falling from the sky is instant slush or the car broke down on the one strip of highway without a shoulder. You will not be disappointed.




       1 1/2 cups cups long grain rice

       2 1/4 cups water

       1/2 teaspoon salt


       3/4 cup water

       1/2 pound kale (including ribs and stems), chopped (3 cups)

       2canslentil soup (16 to 19-ounces each)

       6 ounces smoked kielbasa, sliced thin (1/4-inch; 1 cup)

       2 garlic-cloves, forced through a garlic press


      Combine rice, water, and salt in a heavy medium saucepan. Bring to a full boil, covered, then reduce heat to low and cook, covered, until water is absorbed and rice is tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Quickly fluff with a fork, then remove from heat and keep covered.  

      Bring water to a boil, covered, in a medium saucepan. Add kale and a generous pinch of salt and cook, covered, over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until kale is tender, 5 to 8 minutes.

      Add soup and kielbasa. If necessary, thin soup with a little water. Simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes.

      Stir in garlic and serve spooned over rice.
