Multi-grain Soup.

Hello everybody.

Still have 2-3 freezing days to go, heavy snow since morning and expected icing this night ,they say it’ll be like never ever before !

Found this bag of Italian multi-grain mix bag in Select Food Shoppe last week, I soaked a cup last night so as to tenderize a bit for easier cooking.

Simple easy way to make this soup, you simply saute some chopped onions with some olive oil,add the soaked grains,salt,pepper and a bit of cumin then add 5 -6 cups water and a Maggi cube and leave it to cook in pressure cooker for 40-50 minutes. I added some small pasta and lemon juice as well. Of course you can add meat cubes if you like it richer.

 

I also made Shepherd Pie and some Za’tar buns for lunch.
