Tuna sandwiches for dinner last night and so another easy vegetable soup that can be made from start to finish in just a little more than a half an hour. This one was made with ingredients that are almost staples. Change the vegetables and make it your own...
2 Tbl olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup couscous
1/2 cup shelled edamame beans
1/2 cup brown lentils
6 to 7 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 tsp black pepper
Saute the onions, carrot, celery and garlic over medium heat until the onions soften.
Add the couscous, lentils and edamame and give it a stir
Add 6 cups of broth and the pepper, bring to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes. ( If the soup seems too thick, add that last cup of broth)
Season to taste with salt and pepper
