Red lentil & brown rice soup with feta

I started making a red lentil and brown rice soup only to find I didn’t have nearly enough lentils. Consequently, it sort of transformed into a tomato, vegetable, lentil and rice soup… and I suspect better than the original recipe I was following.

You’ll need

  • 1 cup of red lentils
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 1 onion diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 1 potato
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 tin tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 6-8 cups of chicken or veggie stock
  • salt and pepper
  • 2-3 tsp mixed spices (I used Herbie‘s tagine spice mix that Simon’s mum gave me and it was fantastic. Otherwise a mixture of paprika cardamon and ground coriander would work).
  • Feta to serve

To cook

Fry onion and garlic, add tomatoes and tomato paste followed by the lentils, brown rice and stock. Bring t the boil then reduce and simmer. Add in finely chopped zucchini and potato. Let it simmer over a low heat until the rice has cooked. You may need to adjust the thickness with some additional stock or water.

Serve with feta or yoghurt
