Recipe via Ceres Organics
The blend of lentils, quinoa, amaranth and buckwheat combined with vegetables in this hearty soup leaves us with an incredibly high fibre, nutrient dense meal packed with plant protein and phytonutrients.

Use whatever veggies you have on hand, and go for one of our organic stocks for added flavour.

You'll Need:

1 cup Onion, roughly chopped
1 cup Celery, roughly chopped
1 cup Carrot, roughly chopped
1 cup Red Capsicum, roughly chopped
4 tablespoons Olive Oil
½ teaspoon Chilli Paste
2 tablespoons Tomato Paste
8 cups Vegetable Broth
1 can Chopped Tomatoes
1½ cups Organic Ancient Grains Soup Mix
1 cup Spinach, roughly chopped
2 Bay Leaves
1 bunch fresh Coriander, roughly chopped
Salt and Pepper, to taste

To Make:

Place onion, celery, carrot and capsicum in a blender. Pulse blend until vegetables are chopped small.

Heat olive oil in a large saucepan at medium heat. Add blended vegetables, cook for 3 minutes, or until softened. Add chilli paste and tomato paste, stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Add stock and chopped tomatoes, bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer.

Add Ancient Grains Soup Mix, spinach and bay leaves. Continue to simmer for about 35 minutes, or until grains are cooked. Take off heat and remove bay leaves. Serve garnished with coriander.
