Red Lentil and Quinoa Soup by simpleawesomecooking: Both lentils and quinoa are used in a classic Peruvian soup, menestra de lentajes, that may also include ginger, coconut milk or bacon. But, by leaving out the heavy ingredients and bringing in more vegetables like red pepper and spinach, this makes it more of a traditional vegetable stew....or even a Peruvian vegetable chili. #Soup #Lentil #Quinoa
