Mega-Bean Soup!! (more like Stew)

I decided to take the basic Lentil Soup recipe and add some more super beans and super grains!!!! This resulted in a delicious and hearty stew! So easy to assemble and perfect for that cold winter day (even in Arizona!).


1 large onion, chopped
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
3 celery stalks, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, mashed
2 tablespoons olive oil

½ cup brown lentils
½ cup red lentils
¼ cup black beluga lentils
½ cup yellow/green split peas
¼ cup black eyed peas
¼ cup mung beans
¼ cup wild barley
½ cup wild rice

10 cups of vegetable stock
3 cups of water
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp chili pepper
½ tsp pepper
2 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
½ cup parsley
1 cup cherry tomatoes chopped


Sauté the onions, carrots, celery, garlic, and olive oil in your soup pot.
Then add the vegetable stock and water.
Add all the beans and grains (make sure to have rinsed them first)
Cook for approximately 1 hr (till all beans and grains are tender)
Then add spices, tomatoes, and parsley
Serve hot!
