Thanks to the use of a mixture of legumes in the kitchen, we can supplement our dishes with many vitamins and proteins that are normally found in eggs and meat. Let’s say that the idea of using legumes more and more (as for example they tried to do on the occasion of the world legume day set for 10 February).
Recipe for the preparation of the farmer’s soup
For our peasant soup we recommend that you use the whole package to make 4 (generous) portions of soup for the whole family.
Preparation begins by putting all the legumes in the bathroom for a whole night. In this way the legume will rehydrate and will allow us to proceed with a faster cooking.
In the package we will find: red lentils, split peas, black eye bean, chickpeas, broken broad beans, ciavattoni beans, black beans, borlotti beans.
About two hours before the meal we cook the soup: we use a pot full of water and insert the legumes inside the pot when cold. We keep the legumes cooking for about 60-90 minutes (we check the cooking level every 10 minutes after the first hour) with the pot that remains slightly boiling, always being careful not to overdo it.
Once cooked, fry the onion and flavor it with garlic in a separate pan. As soon as the garlic turns brown, remove it and add the onions to the soup.
It is advisable to let it rest for about ten minutes and then serve still hot and garnish the dish with half a slice of toast.
Those who wish can also serve the farmer’s soup in a bowl with toasted bread cubes in the base.
