This recipe is for when you have little time for preparation but would like to eat something wholesome, tasty and healthy. This mix makes around six portions.

You will need:

500g frozen soup mix vegetables

1/2 cup wholemeal barley

1/2cup dry lentils

1/2 cup stelline or small pasta

1 can beans of your choice, drained and rinsed (opt for beans preserved in salty water only and avoid those with added sugar or preservatives)

Chives and Parsley to taste

A pinch of salt (optional)

 

Preparation: 

Place all ingredients in a pressure cooker

Fill the cooker with hot water (reduced cooking time) to cover the ingredients

Place the cooker on a larger burner on your stove and set the heat to high.

Lower heat when cooker starts to whistle and simmer for another 10 minutes

You may wish to partially blend the soup using a hand blender, giving it a creamy texture.

Serve and enjoy!

 

Tip: 

Part of the soup may be cooled and refrigerated, to be consumed at another meal within 2 days.
