When you need a healthy and VERY easy dinner, this is the recipe to choose. One pot and just a few key ingredients will create a delicious meal. To save me time (and tears), I put my onion and garlic in the food processor instead of chopping it. If you can’t find the McKenzie’s Protein blend, just use a mix of dried quinoa, lentils, and beans, equivalent to 350g/9oz.

Ingredients:

  • 1 brown onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 packet (350g) McKenzies ‘Superblend Protein’ mix
  • 2L vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions:

  • 1.Add oil to a large soup pot. Once hot, add onion and garlic. Brown for 5 minutes.
  • 2.Add dried beans/quinoa/lentils and ‘toast’ for 2-3 minutes. Add stock and red curry paste.
  • 3.Cook for 20-30 minutes. Add more water if it gets too thick. Serve with fresh herbs like parsley (optional).
