Such a soup is always appropriate: whether it’s summer or winter, on a diet you or not – a light satiety is guaranteed!
Red lentils are smaller than their green counterparts and they are very quickly boiled, turning into a tasty, thick gruel, which is just perfect for soups.
Quinoa adds texture and extra healthiness to the soup.
Be sure to add zucchini at the very end, since overcooking it can turn them into mush.
A very aromatic, healthy soup that will please absolutely everyone.
