Carrot Tomato Soup With Red Lentils And Quinoa


With a high speed blender at home you can, in basically no time at all, make smoothies, sauces, dressings and ice creams to mention just a few things – you can also make a delicious soups in a snap. Just mix your raw veggies until completely smooth, then just transfer to a saucepan and let the whole thing simmer for a couple of minutes. Done! 

For an even more hearty soup, add some kind of topping (could be shaved veggies, beans, nuts, seeds or quinoa as I have done here. I also added some red lentils.) Note: If you want to do the same and are using soaked and/or sprouted ones you can just add them without any cooking, but if you’re using raw ones you would want to cook them first. 

In this recipe I use carrots and tomatoes as the base for the soup – but adding fennel, parsnip, pumpkin or whatever you find in you fridge could be a fun twist.
