YOU DO NOT NEED ANY ANIMAL PROTEIN WHEN IT COMES TO THIS QUINOA AND LENTIL SOUP! This protein and fiber rich course is an inspiration of my own. It has quinoa and lentils as main ingredients which both are known to have complete protein. It also contains onions, ginger, garlic, ginger and cilantro. So you can conclude that this soup is pretty healthy and improves the immune system.

I played with the texture by pureeing half of the soup in the food processor and leaving the other half as is. The puree adds certain density to the dish.

You may serve this soup with a slice of bread, avocado or any colored vegetable that you most like!
