Today’s recipe is a delicious and very healthy soup with legumes, cereals and fresh vegetables. It is a vegetarian dish that can be prepared all year long and with different seasonal vegetables. Legumes and Cereals are very healthy for our diet and this recipe is a great way to include all of them at the same plate. I buy already combined Legumes & Cereals at the market, you can use the same. Here I go with the recipe:

1 carrot /1 zanahoria
1 onion / 1 cebolla
1 eggplant / 1 berenjena
1 pumpkin / 1 calabaza

1 sweet red pepper / 1 pimiento rojo dulce
2 potatoes / 2 papas

Salt, white pepper, oregano, olive oil / Sal, pimienta blanca, orégano, aceite de oliva.
Preparation: / Preparación:
Put the Legumes & Cereals in cold water at least 3 hours before cooking them. Wash fresh vegetables with abundant water. Peel and chop vegetables in small cubicles in separate bowl. Add onions into a stew-pot with two soup spoons of olive oil. Fry the onions until shriveled, add potatoes and continue frying them together for 3 minutes. Add chopped tomatoes and continue cooking until the tomatoes are melted. Then, add the rest of vegetables and cook all together for 1 minute. Add legumes & cereals together with their water. Stir well and allow the preparation to simmer.
Attention! Potatoes tend to stick, so make sure to stir the soup time after time. Add one or two cups of cold water to make sure legumes and cereals are well-maid. Regulate with salt, white pepper and oregano. The soup is ready when the beans are ready and the soup is thickened. Remove from the heat and add shredded fresh parsley, as per your taste. Allow for the soup to rest for 5 minutes before serving it nicely to a plate.
This recipe is very suitable for children and all family. Should you wish, you may replace the water with broth. It is ideal for a light supper, or as a first plate for a full meal.
