The name makes it sound really healthy - which it is - but it is also really delicious! People don't seem interested in it - until they see it and taste it! Make sure to salt it enough, the amount varies depending on the type of salt and size of pot.
- 1 onion -
- 3 stalks celery -
- 3 carrots -
- 1 zucchini -
- 1-1.5 cups red lentils (rinsed) -
- 1/4-1/2 cup quinoa -
1. Saute vegetables in the order listed (zucchini last) until the carrots are a bit soft. Add the red lentils and quinoa (be sure to rinse the quinoa if yours does not come pre-rinsed). Cover - or more than cover - with water (remember that the lentils and quinoa absorb water to cook), and add 2 tablespoons (approximately) of kosher salt, and some black pepper. Bring to a boil, and then let cook for 1-2 hours, until the lentils are cooked.
2. Make sure to taste it before serving to see if you need to add more salt. Don't quote me on the salt, because I usually double this recipe whenever I make it, so maybe this amount of salt is for that. Just make sure that it tastes good. If it tastes bland it needs more salt! When you reheat it the next day, you may need to add more water if it is too lumpy.
