Lentil and Borlotti Bean Vegetable Soup
Embrace the wholesome goodness with every spoonful of this tasty soup! An enticing blend of fresh vegies, hearty beans and Vegie Delights Lentil Burgers. It’s the ultimate comfort meal heading into these colder months.
- Set aside the Vegie Delights™ LentilBurgers to defrost while you prepare the vegetables.
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and cook over medium heat to soften. Add the chopped vegetables and stir to combine. Sauté for 3-4 minutes to slightly soften the veg.
- If the Vegie Delights™ LentilBurgers are defrosted, they will crumble, in this case crumble them into the saucepan and mix through the vegetables. If not, place them on the bottom of the saucepan and allow to heat through slightly on each side so that they soften and then break them up in the pan with a wooden spoon.
- Add the tinned tomatoes, water (or stock) and thyme leaves. Add the Borlotti beans and stir to combine. Cover the saucepan with a lid and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until all vegetables are soft.
- Add the green beans in the last few minutes of cooking, season with black pepper and serve topped with the parsley and a side of wholegrain toast.
