Lyndi's Quinoa Lentil Soup (Ideal for Meal Prep)

20 mins
3L or 12 serves Servings

Tips

This is quite a thick soup because I think soup should be satiating and filling. Add more water if you want it to be less salty or stretch a little further.

I love adding the smoked chipotle sauce but that is totally optional. I’m sure other hot sauces would be great.

Ingredients:

  • 1 brown onion
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup of quinoa (I used tricolour but use what you have)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 carrots
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1-2 chillis (depending on level of heat you like)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 700ml Passata (or 2 tins of tomatoes)
  • 1 cup dried lentils (I used green/brown)
  • 1/2 cup dried chickpeas
  • 2L vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon smokey chilli/chipotle sauce (optional)
