Italian Sprouted Bean Trio Soup

soupMy friend Joyce Weissenberger shared with me her bag of truRoots Sprouted Bean Trio she found at Costco. This awesomeness in a bag is a mixture of lentils, mung beans, and adzuki beans. Not quite sure what to do with them, I went on the truRoots website and found this recipe. Oh my gosh! The soup is amazing! It’s so flavorful, EASY to make, and healthy.

Try it, it’s perfect for a cool Fall lunch or dinner. Add some hot, crunchy French bread and your tummy and family will love you for it!

Italian Sprouted Bean Trio Soup

 Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely diced
1 carrot, finely diced
1 stalk celery, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
One 14-ounce can Organic diced tomatoes
3 ½ cups water or vegetable broth
1 bay leaf
1 cup truRoots Sprouted Bean Trio
¼ cup minced fresh parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Preparation:
Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, and celery, and cook, partially covered, until softened, about 10 minutes.

Add the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook for 5 minutes.

Stir in water and bay leaf and bring to a boil. Add the bean trio. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes, until the lentils are tender. Cover and let stand for 2 minutes.

Stir in the parsley and salt and pepper before serving. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

This soup would also be delish served in individual bread bowls for an extra treat.

Serves 4-6

  1. The True Roots Trio did not soften and the bean were crunchy when cooked to package directions.

    • Hi C.L.
      Sorry you had that issue with the beans. That didn’t happen to me or my friend who gave me the beans. Not sure why you had this experience. Maybe the heat was too low? This soup is so good, it might be worth another try and cook them on a higher temperature or for a little longer, test them at the end of the cooking time and adjust accordingly.

      I hope that helps! Thanks for sharing.
