The Best Curry Quinoa + Lentil Soup

  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


Units Scale
  • 1 brown onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 350 g McKenzies ‘Superblend Protein’ mix
  • 2 l vegetable stock
  • 2 tbsp red curry paste
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Add oil to a large soup pot. Once hot, add onion and garlic. Brown for 5 minutes.
  2. Add dried beans/quinoa/lentils and ‘toast’ for 2-3 minutes. Add stock and red curry paste.
  3. Cook for 20-30 minutes. Add more water if it gets too thick. Serve with fresh herbs like parsley (optional).


When you need a healthy and VERY easy dinner, this is the recipe to choose. One pot and just a few key ingredients will create a delicious meal. To save me time (and tears), I put my onion and garlic in the food processor instead of chopping it. If you can’t find the McKenzie’s Protein blend, just use a mix of dried quinoa, lentils, and beans, equivalent to 350g/9oz.
