Could try with tempeh and vegetable stock instead

I would just change the stock to veggie, up the chard and leave out the turkey. Lentils are pretty filling on their own!

Yes, leave out the turkey leg and use a vegetabl stock/broth. If you want a little bit of smokiness, add a few drops of liquid smoke or add a little smoked paprika.

I'd just leave the turkey leg out and add a small spoonful of doenjang (sort of like miso, but Korean and much deeper in flavor, and the kind I buy is less salty). And I might add some dried shitakes to the veggie broth. (I eat 18 vegan meals a week these days, so I've been adapting all of my recipes along these lines lately.) The sauerkraut is so full of flavor, you really don't need the meat. Oh, and I'd add a large bay leaf fairly early on. ;o)
